Can't make it, because it's the 30th Anniversary of WisCon the same weekend. WisCon has always been "our" con. We are having a Venetian Carnival themed party--I'll send you some pics.

I'm skipping BayCon, and we were Fan GoHs last year...

What exactly makes an entry acceptable for the Historical Interpretation category? I have this really insane idea I would like to try, but am a bit unclear what would be acceptable for this category.

All you really need to do is show documentation of a period garment or style it's based upon.

Darren Bost once entered a lion mascot costume wearing a cartoonish Roman chariot-racer's kilt. Of course, he also entered the 4 Mooseketeers (4 mooses in cavalier costumes and a cardinal in cardinal's robes as Cardinal Richelieu). Dora Buck did a rev-war styled dress in flag prints for a silly Betsy Ross costume.

Thank you, that is very helpful! It seems like the historical interpretation category is not as strict as I thought it would be. Looks like the Monkey God in Chinese court costume would fly then.

Interpretation is very open. A mythic figure dressed in period-inspired costume is perfectly kosher.

I'm planning on going, I'll be entering Historical in a presentation involving a line of queens.....no, not that kind, the chick ruling a country kind of queen.....cheesh.....
