It’s very important to us to show that cosplay is about having fun!
So this contest is geared towards new cosplayers, because we want to give you a platform to show your work!
This competition is not about every seam sitting perfectly, whether individual parts are purchased, or whether parts of your costume do not exactly match the template. The main focus is your creativity and your ingenuity, because that’s what cosplay is all about.
All cosplays that are at least 40% self-made are allowed. OCs/own creations are also allowed.
The competition is designed for cosplay newcomers, so we reserve the right to reject entries that we find suspicious (e.g. if the entry is made with a costume that already has a won another competition).
In the pre-judging you can convince the jury in a time window of 5 minutes, and you also have half a minute on stage to present your cosplay to the audience. A performance is not required, but you are free to perform if you wish.
