You will be given just 45 minutes to construct a costume for our panel of judges during your best runway walk. The catch? You can only use the
random materials provided in our Cos Box! That’s right! You can only use the random scraps of fabric, wrapping paper, and other random things in the box! However, since we are feeling nice, scissors, tape, and staplers will be provided. That is all you’re getting from us! Contestants can work in groups or alone, but the more the merrier! Fantastic prize packages will be awarded to First, Second,
and Third place. So bring your creativity and create the best con crunch costumes ever!
