Okay, Comic Con-goers… here’s the deal! You wear costumes to the ‘Con, you get prizes. Just an overview: the CDG will be awarding ribbons daily for the best costumes they see in the halls of Comic Con. Then, Saturday night, the big Masquerade Ball takes place. The CDG will be giving an award for their favorite costume at the Ball, and the award includes a gift certificate to ISW – aka International Silks and Woolens. Believe me, you want this gift certificate. The David C. Copley Award – given by the David C. Copley Center for the Study of Costume Design – will also be given to an outstanding Masquerade Ball participant. The Copley award comes with a $100 cash prize and a copy of the awesome book Dressed, by Deborah Nadoolman Landis!
So, ratchet up your game, people! There are awards to win, ribbons to collect! See you at Comic Con!!
