      Children’s Costume Contest

      Costumers and cosplayers hone their craft at all ages. Soonercon Kids Costume Contest (ages 5-12) participants conceptualize and make their own costumes in this fun, low-key convention costume/masquerade competition event.

      Allow young contestants to be creative! The purpose of this contest division and event is for Soonercon youth to discover the joy of costuming, be able to compete against similarly-skilled participants, and not to crush the competition. See Costume Contest Rules for full entry, rules, and other competition information. Best in Show is determined by the contest judges and will receive the grand prize.
