Before we get lost in TCAF I just want to get out the reminder to Montreal area comic fans that Oscar and Alex are holding another MONTREAL COMIC-CON this weekend on Sunday May 9th!

Hours: 11-5

Costume contest:
There will be a costume contest on May 9th. Five hundred dollars ($500) will be awarded to winners, as follows:
– Every hour from 12:00pm to 4:00pm, a winner will be declared and will receive a $100 credit to spend at any exhibitor or artist booth.
– The registration will be at the entrance and is free of charge.
– Costumes of all genres are welcome, from designs recreated from movies, TV, comic books, fantasy art and Japanese anime, to never-before-seen original designs from the imaginations of our contestants.
– Jennifer Aubin will be in charge of the contest. Also, Henry Wong will be the official photographer.
– Costumes will be judged on originality and on how contestants fit into their character. Note: A homemade costume has an advantage over a store-bought costume.
