Time to hide


What is the Masquerade? Imagine a cosplay gathering with a plot, and you’re halfway there. Dozens of groups put together skits, some planning for months beforehand, others with only minutes to spare, and get up on stage for two minutes to do their thing. From funny to dramatic, the newest shows to old favorites, the whole spectrum is covered by our contestants.


Come be entertained, and please stay till the end to cheer for the winners! The Masquerade is scheduled to start on Saturday at 7 PM on the Main Stage, with seating beginning as close to 6:30 PM as possible. Please check the signs to see where the Masquerade line will be routed. Whether you’re on stage or watching from the audience, this year’s show is going to be a blast. We hope to see you at the Animé Los Angeles Masquerade!
