Dress-Up in Disney and Win! Enter D23 Expo Costume Contest

D23-Expo-Costume-Contest-TrophyThere are so many exciting announcements about the D23 Expo, we can hardly keep up! Our inner Disney geek was jumping for joy when we got word Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives will be back at the D23 Expo!  The “Broadway and Beyond” and Disney Legends Concert  announcements made our hearts skip a beat! We were thrilled when we heard the Dream Store will be back too, because in case you haven’t heard, they have gadgets and gizmos aplenty, they have whozits and whatzits galore! Shopping at the Dream Store is a “dream” come true (well, we couldn’t resist). And as if that’s not enough, if you are a pin trader like we are, we are all in for a real treat as Disney Parks Blog shared the news of  D23 Expo 2013 Pins Coming to the Dream Store for purchase and trading!

Equally exciting is the announcement of “À La Mode,” the first ever costume contest at the D23 Expo! Whether you are participating or spectating, you won’t want to miss this. There will be special collectible trophies awarded for categories such as: Best in Show, Young Fan, Original Design, just to name a few.  Here’s your chance to show what you’ve got on Friday, August 9th! Everyone interested in participating MUST complete an entry form, available now at Closing date for entry is July 21. Keep up with the white rabbit and “don’t be late!”

Here are all the details according to D23:

Since the first D23 Expo in 2009, fans have shown their passion for Disney by dressing up as their favorite and most beloved Disney characters while attending the one-of-a-kind event at the Anaheim Convention Center. This year, D23: The Official Disney Fan Club celebrates that excitement and enthusiasm with the first À La Mode Costume Contest, which will take place Friday, August 9 at 2:30 p.m. in Stage 23.

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—specially 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.

The contest will be two (2) hours in length, and, therefore, the number of entrants is limited. Guests interested in participating MUST complete an entry form, available now at Closing date for entry is July 21. Not all applications for entry will be accepted. Applications will be evaluated on the merits of quality and quantity and selected at the producers’ discretion.

More breaking news! Just this morning D23 announced for the first time ESPN will be participating in the D23 Expo:
