Maskerade Costume Competition

Welcome To Ankh-Morpork
“There's a kind of magic in masks. Masks conceal one face, but they reveal another. The one that only comes out in darkness. I bet you could do just what you liked, behind a mask ... ?”

What is the Maskerade?

In convention parlance, the Maskerade is the costume and talent competition. So here’s your chance to show us your costume, prop or costume accessory as part of the Virtual Discworld Fun Day.

This can be something old, something new, something bought, something made… We really would like to see it!

Entry is free, and all you need to do is submit a photo or two with your entry form - and prizes will be awarded to the best in each category!
