Step back onto the dance floor with us at our very own after-party: The AnchorCon Cosplay Mask-erade Ball!


Starting Saturday, Aug. 22nd at 9:00pm at the AnchorCon Main Stage, join us for a formal black-tie cosplay party. Design your best formal cosplay, incorporating a mask, and throw your best shapes on the floor with our very own Quaintrelle Cosplay as your EmceeDJ! The set list is a magical combination of hits from across fandoms, remixed for your enjoyment! The end of the night ends with a romantic dance to the beautiful "As the World Falls Down" from the movie Labyrinth!

What's a "formal cosplay" you ask? Put Darth Vader into a slick black suit, or create a Laura Croft ballgown based on her original design! You can also come as a princess or a pirate in a tutu or a Jedi in a High Council robe! Slip on a mask and strut and numa numa dance the night away with us! This is a black-tie event, so no flip flops, shorts, jeans or tshirts please!

The party starts at 9:00pm and runs until......??

A cash/card bar is available with wine, beer and canned cocktails! (Provided by O'Briens of Clayton !)

Tickets: $15 pp/ $20 couple with any admission ticket to AnchorCon.

Tickets to the Mask-erade ball included with VIP ticket purchase.


"Cosplay formal attire" means that you'll have a cosplay that can be considered "black tie" - think Darth Vader in a slick suit and tie, or Lara Croft in a ball gown inspired by her original look, with a mask somehow incorporated into the design. The cosplay part of the dress code isn't mandatory, but this is a special event and we do require that our guests dress well for the occasion, so no shorts and tshirts and flip flops.
