What is a Masquerade?

No matter what part of fandom you attend, you can find costumes.  In the early days, random people showed up in various outfits and encouraged others to do the same.  Due in large part to the efforts of Bjo and John Trimble, the convention Masquerades are now huge events that showcase the talent and invention of our many costumers in all genres.  We have a great tech crew to make the costumes look marvelous, whether in person or via video.  

The DisCon III Masquerade

Due to the current world pandemic, we have decided to have a Virtual Masquerade, planned well in advance. As we have now changed the dates for the convention to allow for an in person convention, a traditional Masquerade will occur as well.   The rules for these Masquerades will be different in many ways, we encourage you to send questions to whenever necessary.

Important Note: You are welcome to be an entrant in both Masquerades.
