CC39 at Worldcon – Dublin 2019: An Irish Worldcon
While half the team was at Silicon Valley Comic Con (SVCC), the other half was in Dublin for Worldcon.
There were 35 entries in the Worldcon Masquerade, about half of them novices. The quality of the costumes and entries was impressive. Masquerade Director Kevin Roche and his team (including CC39 co-chair Christine Doyle) made sure everyone had the best time possible. The judges (4 US-based and 4 EU-based) had a difficult time making their decisions, but ultimately awarded Best in Show Workmanship to “Sometimes a Girl Just Wants to Feel Pretty” by Alicia Faires and Best in Show Presentation to “From The Dark” by Lance Ikegawa.
The full list of the awards can be seen in Issue 8 of the convention Newsletter.
