The Reversed Polarity Masquerade is an amateur costume competition for costumes not only related to Doctor Who but also Anime/Manga, Media (e.g. Star Trek, Star Wars, Avengers), Fantasy, Science Fiction, Comics, Horror, Computer Games, and any other related topics. Historical & Steampunk very welcome also.
Contestants must be registered as convention members. Registration for the Masquerade is available at the Masquerade Desk or download the Registration Form. Contestants must register by 2 p.m. on Saturday in order to be in the Masquerade. No late registrations will be accepted.
Contestants are to check in at the Masquerade Green Room Desk at 5:30 p.m. Contestants will be assigned their entry number, have their official photo taken, and be judged for workmanship (if desired).
Historical costumes are now eligible for awards, and no sci-fi/fantasy tie-in theme is necessary. They will be judged in the regular divisions and be eligible for Workmanship Awards, “Best in Division” and “Best in Show” Awards. Our judges will give out awards based on the merits of historical costumes in their designated division, with no specific historical awards allocated in advance.
Please note that Participation Certificates are no longer given out.
