Weyrfest Costume Contest!

Weyrfest Costume Contest!
« on: July 16, 2012, 07:25:38 PM »
Hello, fellow costuming nerds!

This is Charlotte, the director of Anne McCaffrey's Worlds (colloquially known as Weyrfest), and I will try to keep it short:

We're bringing back our track's costume contest this year, and we really really want it to not suck. To help achieve non-suckage, author Jody Lynn Nye has declared that if at least 20 people enter our contest, the grand prize winner will be written into her next book. AWESOME.

To kill a couple birds with one stone, we're merging our costume contest with the parade -- so pretty much all we're asking folks to do is march with us, and then await judgment thereafter. We would LOVE to see tons of awesome creative ideas from across Anne McCaffrey's many series: the Dragonriders of Pern, the Talent series, Petaybee, Freedom, Acorna, etc., ad nauseum.

I did a video thingie to describe all the details, background, etc., but that's pretty much the gist of it. You, in costume, in the parade with us, looking fabulous, and then BEING IN A BOOK when you win. And also other prizes! And fame and glory! And also this director's eternal gratitude.
