Cosplay Masquerade

The Penti-con 2023 Cosplay Masquerade

This is a performance-only based contest, meaning you don't need to make your costume to be able to enter. Come take to the stage and show off, no matter your skill level!


Walk-ons will be limited to 45 seconds or less. 

  • Please submit your custom walk on music in MP3 format, to be played while you take the stage when you fill out the sign-up form. If your music is not 45 seconds or less it will not be played, no exceptions. Audacity is a great free software to mix and cut audio.


Please include in your application a small description to be read out at the event during your walk on. This can be about your character or about your costume, whichever you see fit.


Sign up will close on October 6th at midnight.  You should hear from us by the 16th when the contest will take place. If we have reached our contestant capacity, we will notify by email if you did not make it, and if you wish to be on a waitlist.

If we have not reached our capacity, we will be allowing sign ups at the convention on the day of. We however encourage you to sign up early to secure your spot.


Awards available:

  • Best Walk-On


Judges reserve the right to change categories or award as many or as few awards as they wish.


If you have any questions please feel free to email our cosplay contest coordinator at and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
