CC32 was a roaring success, thanks to our wonderful volunteers and sponsors and of course the awesome attendees and panelists who shared their enthusiasm and skills! We had the biggest attendance of any Costume-Con and the biggest F&SF Masquerade ever!
BIG NEWS: Costume-Con will be returning to Toronto in 2017! We also hope to see many familiar faces at Costume-Con 33 in Charlotte SC (next year) and Costume-Con 34 in Madison WI (2016)!
Official photos by Christine Mak can be seen here; some galleries not up yet. If you have photos or con-reports you’d like to share, you can share them on our Facebook page or email them to us.
Masquerade results are listed on their respective pages:

Choosing Costume-Con’s Location
For those new to Costume-Con, the con is run like Worldcon on a bid system; local groups must bid to host the con in their city.
At each Costume-Con, all attending and supporting members can vote for Site Selection of the CC three years from that date (for example, voting for the CC32 Site Selection took place at CC29).
This year we will be voting on the location for Costume-Con 35 in 2017. You can visit the CC34 table at the con for more information and for voting (they will be receiving and tabulating the votes). Voting costs $10, but if the site you voted for wins the bid, that $10 counts towards your membership.
You can download the ballot here, and submit it in person at the con; there will also be copies available at the con. If you are registered as a member of CC32 but are not attending the con, please contact us to send in your ballot via email.
Progress reports can be seen here:

Our main con hotel is now SOLD OUT! We’re overwhelmed with the response to CC32! We’ve added overflow hotels; here’s the info:
Not everybody provided their email address when they signed up, and some email addresses may be old/incorrect, so there are some members who aren’t getting our emails. We’ll be sending out a Progress Report soon, so we want to make sure we have everyone’s correct info!
If you have registered but didn’t receive our emails about the Future Fashion Folio, please contact us with your updated email address.
Want a group discount for more than 4 people? The system only allows increments of 4 at the moment (techies working on it), so if you need a different number please contact us via email/FB and we’ll tell you how to do it.
