We will be adding adding rooms at the Marriott Residence Inn within the next few days. Please check the Hotel page for rate information. residence_inn

This Summer, we are excited to announce that the Cosplay Masquerade will be making the big move to the Community Center Theater. (You know, the one where they host the hit Broadway shows?) Our cosplay director has decreed that we “Go Big or Go Home”, and she won’t take “Go Home” as an answer. Bigger Stage, Bigger Theater, Bigger Prizes, Bigger Trophies, Bigger Costumes, Bigger Sound.

She is also asking for more performances, and that’s where we need your help! In addition to the contestants, we also need supplemental performances for the opening and closing acts. Think BIG. This is the chance to perform in front of a large SacAnime audience, without having to worry about a costume! The stage is huge, so solo dance performances will not be considered. Performances must be between 2-5 minutes in length and appeal to a large crowd even from far away.

Please send a link to your audition video to: sac.cosplay.director@gmail.com This must be a video of YOUR GROUP performing what you intend to perform on stage, not a video of someone else doing what you’d like to do. Remember to include all of your contact information, including cell phone number!

The deadline to submit your audition video is August 20th.

SacAnime welcomes voice actor/writer/director Tony Oliver to our Summer 2014 show.

You can find more information about Tony and our other Guests of Honor here.

Due to the exceptionally high volume of submissions and questions, it is taking much longer than normal for our cosplay director to assign entry numbers to contestants. Rest assured, your submissions are being received, and you will be receiving a reply as soon possible. There are still spaces available, so try not to panic in the meantime.

Also, we received more than five times the number of gathering requests as last year, many of which were duplicates. In the interest of getting the final list available as soon as possible, many of you may not receive personalized replies to your submissions. (Especially for those who requested the most popular duplicates: Bleach, Black Butler, Sailor Moon, Naruto, Marvel/DC, and League of Legends.) The current schedule is the FINAL version. It is available to view here:

Summer 2014 Gathering List

If you are not sure if the gathering on the list is “your” gathering, we encourage you to work with other duplicate gathering owners to share duties. SacAnime cannot act as an intermediary in gatherings, as these are “fan run” events.
