Time To Have A Little Fun!
Costume Conformation Class Sponsored by NEMASC
This class isn't for the best looking dog, it is for the funniest, most creative, most outrageous or ingenious dogs and owners. Grab a camera, a costume and a friend who doesn't mind being embarrassed.
Costume Class Guidelines
*All participants must be in the ring at one time per category.
*There will be one winner in each of the categories listed below with a prize for each category. *There will be placement ribbons given for 1st-4th place for each category. These ribbons shall be standard non regular flat ribbons for 2-4th place and the winner of each category receiving the first place rosette and award.
*The judges' decisions are final.
*All dogs must be on a leash and under control.
*Participants will be asked to move around the ring for inspection by the judge/judges.
*Dogs must have a costume.
*Handler may or may not wear a costume.
Most Original Winner: This is to be determined by the judge/judges as the costume that took the most thought and creativity.
Most Outrageous Winner: This is to be determined by the judge/judges as the costume that is the most comical, colorful, and "over the top".
Best Pair Winners: This is to be determined by the judge/judges as the best participants of two or more dogs with one handler in costumes with a unifying theme.
Remember that this is solely for fun! Please do not stress your dog if it is not comfortable with a costume and remember the costume should not be constricting to the dog. Dogs's attitude will be considered in judging!
