Ticket sales for this year's Ball have opened and can be purchased via the links to the right. Ticket sales close 24 August 2016. No tickets available to purchase at the door.

This is a National Event with costumers coming from many states, so you will be able to meet people with similar interests from all over Australia.

This is strictly a costumed event, but you do not have to have made the costume yourself unless you wish to enter the competitions. You can wear any costume from any genre; from historical to anime, fantasy and sci-fi, even original creations.

Here is some important information to get you started.

1. Follow Us on Facebook
Follow the Australian Costumers' Guild on Facebook and join the event page. You will get updates and you can ask questions regarding the Ball or any aspect of costuming. We have a variety of levels of expertise and are happy to talk about anything costume related, and we don't bite! So please, come and tell us what you're interested in and if you're coming.

2. Book Your Tickets
If you are a member of the Australian Costumers' Guild you can take advantage of our special discounted price. Tickets are also available from selected outlets.

3. Consider the Cosplay competition
There is a Cosplay competition on the evening, with $100 prize money up for grabs. You must enter this no later than 24 August 2016.
Check the Cosplay Competition Rules for more information on what you need to do, and what is expected. Our Forums also available for you to ask any questions you might have.

Basic Costume rules

  • Ensure your costume is not made of, or trimmed with, any messy substances as these have the possibility of damaging other entrants' costumes.
  • No live animals (yes we need this as a rule, don't ask).
  • No real weapons. Legal replicas and created props are generally accepted. If you're not sure check with an organiser via the forum or Facebook Page. Weapons check can also be done at the Ball venue.
  • This is family event, so please no nudity.
