Here is your opportunity to make that dream costume without needing the rest of your life to finish it!

Enter the Doll Competition!

The Doll Competition is open to every attending member of CC27.

Whatever people want to create is great, and we enthusiastically anticipate the arrival of your creations!

There are no fixed special categories other than the "Chairman's Choice for Best Theme Related Doll" Much like the Masquerade, the Awards will be given by the  Doll Competition Judges in the spirit of "Excellence Deserves Recognition".

Examples of the types of categories which may be considered are, (but not limited to): Original doll, Re-dressed doll, Altered doll, Miniature, Diorama, Historical, Horror, Fantasy, Humor, Re-creation, Anime, Vampire, Villain, Vixen dolls, and so on.

Entrants are encouraged to print out some background information on their piece and to include documentation if called for (historical & re-creations especially.)

Examples of things you may want to include are: What do you want the judges to know about your doll?  What was the inspiration? What is the back story? How did you do it? Perhaps you would like to point out any specific materials or techniques you feature, for example,  Beading, smocking, painting, embroidery, sculpting, etc.


1. You may use either purchased or self-made figures to dress. They may be human, humanoid, animal or alien; they may be any reasonable doll size or miniatures.

2. The costuming must be original work, and it is the costume that will be the focus of the judging.

3. Entries will be grouped by type of figure and subject matter: Historical, Fantasy, Miniature, Humor and others, depending on what is entered.

4. There is no rule 4.

5. Please indicate if the entrant is an Adult, or Young Fan (15 years of age or younger)

6. You must be an attending member of CC27 to enter.

7. You may enter more than once, but please check on space availability if you have several dolls, larger dolls, or a diorama.
