What’s better than a Friday? A Friday with fantastic news! In celebration of the gorgeous, limited-edition release of Sailor Moon SuperS, Part 1 this April, we’re excited to announce a unique and special event. Taking place at this year’s Anime Boston, it’s the Sailor Moon SuperS Moonlight Masquerade!

Sailor Moon, and especially the SuperS arc, is all about beautiful dreams, and this contest is a chance to let your creativity come alive. The Moonlight Masquerade is a curated showcase of Sailor Moon cosplay of all kinds. Contestants will bring their creations to the stage to pose for our panel of judges and compete for thousands of dollars in cash and prizes. Will the winners be Sailor Guardians? Villains? Characters only found in the manga? No matter what, it’s bound to be exciting!

Event signups are available HERE!

That’s not all: everyone who attends and cheers on the contestants will receive some lovely Sailor Moon treats, will see an exclusive premiere and appearances by very special guests. There will even be a colorful Sailor Moon-themed photo backdrop at the convention for all your Sailor Selfies, too. It will be an enchanting event you won’t want to miss!

So, what’s this about prizes? We have some truly fantastic ones lined up and more to come! While some of these are subject to change, here are the prizes up for grabs:
