Events – Masquerade


On Saturday, we will celebrate costumes inspired by science fiction and fantasy. The annual Masquerade has been a feature of Worldcon since the very first convention in 1939. There will be opportunities to make, wear, and repair costumes throughout the convention, with the Glasgow 2024 Masquerade taking place on Saturday evening. Whatever your level of experience in creating a costume, this can be your opportunity to share your imagination with an appreciative audience. All Worldcon members are welcome to participate, either by producing and entering costumes of your own or in groups, or by joining the audience to watch the show. Whether you want to participate, or offer suggestions or ideas, get in touch via
