Schlow Centre Region Library Parking Lot

Visit the BookFest Facebook page for the complete contest rules.
Entrants must register from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at the Setsucon Costume Contest Check-In table in the Bookfest tent.
Use common sense: Please keep all costumes family friendly, wear shoes, etc.
Your costume must be seasonally appropriate: We don’t want anyone to get heat stroke! We will be outside in 80 degree weather, with only the tent for shade. Jon Snow didn’t wear his furs south of Winterfell, perhaps neither should you.
It’s a fairly big tent, but the space has to be shared by lots of people– having a 10 ft wingspan won’t fly. Please keep in mind how much space your cosplay takes up, and how easily it is to move around while wearing it, and adjust accordingly. Face masks must be removable.
All props and weapons must be checked and approved at the check-in desk.
Absolutely NO real, projectile or realistic weapons will be permitted.
Acceptable props can be made of wood, plastic, foam, or similar material. Props cannot be over 7ft tall, more than 5ft wide, or weigh over 50 lbs. No live steel, metal, guns, chemicals or explosives will be permitted. Props must not have any sharp edges or chains longer than 18 in.
Any acceptable prop weapons will be checked. Carrying weapons through the Arts Festival is prohibited.
Entrants must remain in the tent, so that everyone can see your costume!
Judges will announce the winners at 3:00 pm for the following categories:
– Most Accurate
– Best Duo
– Best Kids
– Best Anime/Comic
– Best TV/Movie/Book
Winners of each category will receive a free badge to attend Setsucon 2020 on January 25-26, 2020 at the Blair County Convention Center, Altoona, PA
