Isn’t the Masquerade everyone’s favorite part of an Anime Convention? It’s where cosplayer’s get to showcase what they poured their hard work and dedication into. Whether be through sewing, knitting, molding and other forms of crafting, I am excited to see it. I also love to see the skits prepared for these events, they are usually- always the funniest way to see some of our favorite characters portrayed.
This year the contestants did not disappoint.

We were given the privilege of attending Anime NYC as press and were granted access to much of what the convention had to offer. Press coverage of the Masquerade Ultra Deluxe was great. We took some video and photos of all the participants in this year’s event.
