Disney D23, the official club for fans of The Walt Disney Company, today announced that it will debut a new experience at its upcoming 2013 D23 Expo: the À La Mode Costume Contest. The contest is scheduled to take place on Friday, August 9, 2013 from 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm in the Stage 23 venue.
À La Mode, named after The Incredibles’ couture genius Edna Mode, is the first competition of its kind to showcase fans’ creativity through costumes inspired by all things Disney, including Motion Pictures (Animation, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm); Parks & Resorts; Consumer Products; Media Networks (including Disney Channel, ABC, and ESPN); and Interactive.
Five collectible trophies, especially designed for the À La Mode Costume Contest, will be awarded to the most magical costumes in the following categories: Original Design (or inspired by…), Re-creation, Craftsmanship, Young Fan, and Best in Show.
Guests interested in participating MUST complete an entry form at D23Expo.com by July 21, 2013. Due to a limited number of slots, applications do not guarantee participation will be evaluated on the merits of quality and quantity and selected at the producers’ discretion.
Tickets for the D23 Expo are $57 for a one-day adult admission and $47 for children 3–12. Tickets for members of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club are $50 for a one-day adult admission and $42 for children.
