“Remix” Masquerade Ball & Cosplay Competition


The SwanCon 2013 Masquerade Ball will take place at the convention venue, on the evening of Saturday March 30, and is free for all convention attendees.

The festivities will begin with the Cosplay Parade and Competition, which will take place in the restaurant foyer, beginning at 7:30pm sharp.

At the conclusion of the competition, we’ll move on to the Masquerade Ball itself in the Champagne Ballroom. There will be a dancefloor and DJ, drinks bar, professional photobooth and more. It promises to be a fun-filled evening of cosplay, music, revelry and great company.


The convention committee is excited to announce that the costume theme for this year is “Remix”.

It’s time to get creative. Think of a character, any character. Or think of two and mix them together. Reimagine them. Genderswap them. Take them to a different time, culture or genre. Give them a new look or a new personality. Do whatever you want. There are no rules except this – take something recognisable and change it.

We look forward to seeing what imaginative costumes our attendees can conceive. Get cracking and make sure you look the part!
