All-Con 2014 is just 26 days away!
Yes the days until All-Con 2014 continue to slip away. Valentine's Day is here and its time for the USG's turn at the All-Con 2014 countdown. And hey! Here's a great idea for your sweetheart! Why not buy him or her a four day pass to the show by clicking here!
For this installment it seemed like a big part of All-Con (indeed most conventions large and small these days) should be showcased - costuming. Yes, I realize that "cosplay" is the buzzword these days, but I am old enough to still call it costuming.

For 2014 you can expect to find that costumes will dominate much of the weekend. From the annual Costume Contest (at which JediCole has been a judge nearly every year) to All-Con Top Zombie and even a Doll Costume Contest. Super-Hero Sunday returns, a contest that mixes costuming and performance to find its champion. There is a Cosplay Contest and even a competition called "Doctor Who's Next Companion" in which costuming is likely to be a key factor. Of course "hall costumes" are a non-competitive aspect of the show as well.
For the true expert costumer All-Con has added something huge! A winner-take-all ($1000 prize) Championship Costume Contest. While other competitions are open to all comers (up to registration limits), the Championship Costume Contest requires a $100 entry fee and is designed to be a showcase of the best of the best.
