Costume Competitions
« on: August 26, 2015, 06:59:47 AM »
PC - any activity marked PC means that it takes place Pre-Convention
OE - any activity marked OE is an Optional Extra and involves the purchase of a ticket add-on
FE - any activity marked FE means Free Entry and is included in your main convention ticket

Costume Competition 1 - Stargate - FE

Always a popular part of the convention, attendees are invited to create, bring along and wear a Stargate-themed costume. This could be your favourite team member from the show, or perhaps your favourite alien.

  • Please note no weapons, real or replica, are allowed as part of the costume.The only exception is zat guns/staff weapons. Nothing that can be mistaken for an actual, (non-alien), weapon will be allowed. In today's climate we are sure you understand the reasons.
  • There will be a parade of costumes and the winner will receive the Peggyan Rodriguez Memorial Trophy. Peggyan attended the first Gatecon and was our costume competition organiser


Costume Competition 2 - Vangroovy! - FE


As you may have gathered there is a 1960's theme to The Homecoming to celebrate the Stargate SG-1 episode 1969. Gaters are encouraged to bring along a suitable outfit reflecting the episode or the era. We appreciate costumes take up valuable suitcase space, so we are making several of the activities costume-based, though as always there is no obligation to wear a costume

Any convention activity using the term "Vangroovy" in its title is one where you are welcome to wear your 1960's costume (although please feel free to wear it throughout the event if you wish)

A secret judge will be checking out the 1960's fashionistas and an overall winner will be announced during the event.

Are you planning to take part in either of the costume competitions, or both?

We would love to hear what you have planned - photos of your creations as they progress are welcome. Unless of course it is a top secret project!

We would at least like to get an idea of the number of people who will be dressing the part, so we can plan accordingly. Therefore please take part in the poll at the top of this thread.

Many Thanks.

If I enter the costume competition, can I make the costume for someone else to wear?

I can't see that being a problem at all Amy. You might have to fight over the trophy if the costume wins though!!

My Stargate cosplay was purchased from someone, I only made a small portion of it (which is the P90 holster, which I won't even need since I can't bring the P90), should I enter the costume contest? Are we looking for who looks the best or who has costume making skills? I have a low amount of skills, so I don't want to enter if that's what everyone will be judged on!

Good question!

Personally I don't have an issue with whether the costume is 100% home made or bought in. I'd be far happier having more people enter the comp by allowing this.

(Apologies for the delay in replying...completely missed the post)

When will the "parade" be for the Stargate competition? I am trying to plan my costume - but its going to be a little extensive (if I follow through) to do multiple days. Just wondering what day I should plan on wearing it!

Thanks!

The way the itinerary is shaping up the parade will most likely take place just before the charity auction gets underway.

I will be entering both costume competitions (hopefully!!) - my suitcase is going to be groaning!  But not sure whether my 82 yr old aunt (who's coming too) is up for the competition itself.  However, we will both be wearing hippie gear during the event - just loved the 1960's!

I need to check to see if my costume still fits! If so I'll enter both.

I put myself down for doing both, but with my budget now limited and suitcase space, I am only entering the Stargate competition!I've grown my hair for it so its definitely the one I am going for :)
Hope that is okay Richard!!!
