Wow that is real neat! Had no idea there was that much to it! Yeah I'd like to become part of the colonial roster, not sure which cons I would go to yet. What do I need to do to join? I am tying to be ready by the Philly halo outpost. I'm hoping to go there with Turbo as long as everything comes together by then. Thank you for the info!Every Con has some form of competition. They might have it under different names: Cosplay/Costume Contest, Masquerade, and/or Hall contests. Some, you have to register on line first in order to compete. Others, you do the day of ....just sign up. Since you are on the East coast....which would make you a Colonial BTW (should we put you in the roster? Yes? You've already met the criteria.) the biggest competition is NYCC Easter Cosplay Championship. The winner of this goes on to Chicago where they hold the Crown Championship and then on to the Global Championship location TBA. If you wish, go through the Colonial Cons list, HERE, find one near you and check it out.
