Winners are selected by a group of Staff members and Directors of NDK who personally view all entries. Original costumes (especially formal interpretations of existing characters), uniqueness, and craftsmanship are highly valued by our selection panel.

Winners must be fully costumed and present in the ballroom at 10:00 for the fabulous Cosplay Red Carpet! Our presiding Queen D will lead a quick (and fabulous) walk down the red carpet so everyone can see the costumes that have entered the contest. Royalty winners will be announced directly afterwards. Entrants must be present and fully dressed to win.
