Costume Showcase

Chessiecon usually has a catered Time Travelers' Social during which attendees can show off their costumes. For a virtual con, we plan to present a video compilation of costume presentations. You can share your costumes in a short video or a set of photos which will be shown as a slide show. You may share one costume or several. They can be costumes that you have entered in masquerades or hall costumes; they don't have to be new. Below are some guidelines that will make it easier for us to put the video together.

Guidelines:

  1. The slide show or video should not be more than 5 minutes total length
  2. You may include a voice-over explaining the costume style, time period, fictional universe, and/or character it represents
  3. Any background music may not be under copyright, or you must own the copyright
  4. Please keep the costumes and presentations at a PG rating
  5. Video format: Prefer MP4 format; Landscape orientation with 16 by 9 aspect ratio
  6. Audio format: Prefer MP3 or WAV format
  7. Photo format: Prefer JPEG or PNG; Portrait orientation with a 3 by 4 aspect ratio
  8. Email costumes@chessiecon.org if you have a question about the media file formats

Due date: November 19 at midnight.

Send your costume presentation media files along with your name, costume titles, and documentation about the costumes to costumes@chessiecon.org.
