ABOUT THE VIRTUAL MASQUERADE

Furpocalypse hosts one of the most entertaining Masquerade shows allowed, and we want YOU to be a part of it! Participants do not need to have any experience, fursuit, or costume. The point of our Masquerade is to have fun and put on a great show for all ages to enjoy!

We are limited to a maximum of 18 acts and due to the nature of this year's con, all submissions must be made by October 18th to be considered!

Since we're fully online this year, your act must be pre-recorded and submitted with your application. Here's some guidelines to follow when recording your act:

  • DO NOT shoot your act using vertical video, horizontal only please!
  • It's preferred to receive your video in H.264 (MP4) format, other formats are accepted, but require more time on our end to ensure they playback smoothly.
  • Your act cannot be more than 5 minutes! Anything longer and we'll either ask you to modify it or it cannot be accepted. We have very tight timetables this year.
  • Please ensure you limited the amount of distracting background noise during your act! Clean, clear, and crisp audio will provide for a much more enjoyable viewing experience for all.

TYPE OF ACTS

All performances and costumes must be suitable for a general audience. All costumes must meet the stated requirements in our Code Of Conduct found in the Furpocalypse conbook and on our website. Costumes and acts may be subject to alteration, or rejected at the Masquerade Staff's discretion.

Individual and group performances are both welcome to perform!

The act you perform during Saturday night's show must match the act you presented at rehearsal. Drastic deviations, outbursts, obscenities, or inappropriate behavior will result in an immediate halt of your act, and may result in a ban from future Masquerades as well as possible disciplinary action and public embarrassment.

LENGTH OF ACTS

The length of each act is limited to a maximum of 5 minutes. If your music or act is longer than the stated limit, please contact the Masquerade Department and we'll do our best to work with you.

JUDGING

Furpocalypse's Masquerades are judged by panel, winners will be honored at the end of the show. Acts will be judged by their originality, execution, audience response, as well as swag points.

If you have any questions or concerns about your act and or what's acceptable, contact the Masquerade Team in advance!

ALL MASQUERADE APPLICATIONS MUST BE IN BY OCTOBER 18TH TO BE CONSIDERED!
