The Elfia Costume Parade isn’t just a way to show off your costumes, it’s a costume contest. Our judges will choose four costumes who stand out in one of our categories to win a category prize. Each day one of those winners has a chance to win a money-prize to support their costume-making passion.

Best Cosplay (entrance tickets ELFIA HAARZUILENS 2019 with a max of 6 tickets, 25 euro in coins for catering & a bottle of Elfia Mead)

This costume is based on an already existing concept. The costume is such a look-a-like, you won’t even notice the difference from the original at first sight. For example the most beautiful cinderella dress of the best looking ghostbuster. Please send or bring a picture of the original costume/character.

Best Original Design (entrance tickets ELFIA HAARZUILENS 2019 with a max of 6 tickets, 25 euro in coins for catering & a bottle of Elfia Mead)

The most important thing for this category is creativity. Meaning: The outfit is not based on something existing but completely standing on its own.

Best Performance (entrance tickets ELFIA HAARZUILENS 2019 with a max of 6 tickets, 25 euro in coins for catering & a bottle of Elfia Mead)

The design and make of a costume is of course a very important part of the competition, but the presentation of a candidate and its costume is equally important. A contestant has to get in front of alot of people and present something that they created, which in itself is a very daunting thing to do.

Best Craftmanship (entrance tickets ELFIA HAARZUILENS 2019 with a max of 6 tickets, 25 euro in coins for catering & a bottle of Elfia Mead)

It takes a lot of skill to make a costume. It also takes a lot of energy. There are a lot of ways to put together a costume, people can sew or just put on some duct-tape. It is of course not necessary to have all the most expensive fabrics and materials. What we do want to see in this category is how you have used your materials. Have you spent your time painstakingly putting together your outfit?That’s what we want to see in your outfit

Great Promise Prize (entrance tickets ELFIA HAARZUILENS 2019 with a max of 6 tickets, 25 euro in coins for catering & a bottle of Elfia Mead)

Who has done a great job, but somehow didn’t get any of the category prizes? The judges see great potential in you and your costume and would like to encourage you by giving you this prize.

Overall Day Winner (on top of the category prizes a money prize of 250 euro, a bottle of Elfia Mead and a entrance tickets to ELFIA HAARZUILENS 2019 with a max of 6 tickets)

Who has done such a great job that you should be able to tick all the boxes (or a lot of them anyway)? That is the person that will win this prize. The Overall Day Winner is the person who has the most outstanding costume of the day.
