There are two ways in which you can participate in the Elfia Costume Parade. The advantages and disadvantages are summed up and below that you'll find the rules for participating in the Costume Parade.

 

1. Pre Registration

You know how to make a show within a show; you have a beautiful costume and a great act to compliment it!

* Your act is at least 1 minute, with a maximum of  3 minutes.

* Your act has music, theater, poetics, song, playback, dance or attributes to support your act and such to tell a story/make an act.

* You want to show Elfia what beautiful creations you have made and are not shy to be the center of attention for a while.

* You have a chance to win the prize in the category “Best Performance”

* You are 99% certain of participating in the Costume Parade

 

 

2. Registration on the venue

You are great at creating costumes and have made a bombshell of a costume to show Elfia, you just don't have an act.

 

* You show your costume along the catwalk for everyone to see.

* Stagetime will be approximately 30 seconds - 1 minute

* You don't have to wait long backstage before you enter the stage

* You don't have to register in advance

* You don't have a change in winning a prize in the category “Best Performance”.

* First come, first serve; you are not certain of a place in the Costume Parade, since participants with an act have precedence on other participants.

 

For all participants:

It is not allowed to participate at the Elfia Costume Parade if:

* Your act (costume/character) has won a prize in previous editions

* The costume is worn by a previous King/Queen

This also counts for acts and or costumes which have a little adjustment.

When this does happen, you will be excluded of participating in following editions.

* The group is bigger than 25 persons, because of stage capacity.

 

Prizes:

* When you are called out as winner, it is important that you are there. If you're not, you'll get no prize. With the exception of the overall event winner, which is announced on Monday.

* Please do not leave with your prize before you've given your personal information to the Theatre Crew volunteers.

For both ways of participating there are a different set of rules to participate, which will follow;

 

1. Pre Registration

Registration

Registration applies by the registration form with a description of the act and a photo or sketch of the costume. When you want to use music or sound effects, indicate this at the registration form, attach it to the form, or email it and deliver the music at the event on USB, max 4 GB. We will do everything possible to be sure your USB plays, if something unexpected does go wrong it is always good to carry a backup on for example a CD. When you use a spoken text as sound effect, only English is allowed.

 

How does it work?

One hour in advance you will report at the Medieval Stage. This is necessary to get everything in order backstage. All participants gather there, will be placed in order of appearance by the volunteers and wait for the program to start the Elfia Costume Parade. 

Volunteers of Elfia will answer your questions and give further instructions.

 

When you are announced to the public you can enter the stage and catwalk. These are your minutes of fame! Enjoy en let your act shine! After that you leave the stage and wait until the results are in. If you are declared the winner, you once again enter the stage and receive your prize.
