I’m new to this – can anyone at the con watch the masquerade without entering? i.e., I’m just attending but wish to watch. Is that ok?

Yes. Think of the Masquerade as a Costume Show, not a Costume Party. People watching it (like you!) sit in the audience while the entrants display their costumes on the stage. This is not a Masqued Ball or an event where every single person in the room has to be in costume. Sorry for any confusion.
