I've had a few PM's about what constitutes an "original" costume as it pertains to this photoshoot. We'd like to do a photoshoot showcasing original designs, be they a specific character or just a generic outfit. This would not include anything that would be confused with a specific show, like an obvious "LotR-movie hobbit" or a new version of an existing character. Being inspired from a show is one thing but it should be something that noone could confuse with anything else - original.

How About costumes based off RP characters from exsisting Genres? (Star Wars RPG characters, etc)

How about using an a person like Yuna from FFX-2 but make an original costume for her...would that count as original?

Original as in "would not be mistaken for something else" :)

So a stormtrooper or jedi or a Yuna variation wouldn't work, no.

If we don't get any interest in this event we'll either open it up to everything or cancel it.

Just out of curiosity, how come no minors would be allowed at this event?

*L* Oh Drat. I was really hoping This would work for RPG character costumes, since most of my original stuff is based on that sort of thing. *is a cruddy Fashion designer*
Any Chance it might open up to that?
Not like I don't have ideas on what else to do.;)

Um, how about the character in my avatar (the nurse with red hair.) It's an original character I drew, and I plan to wear it for A-Kon. Would it pass?

Sana: That was a mistake, minors are fine for this event. It'll be like the campout was, where you'll have to have a guardian sign the model release for you. :)

Aiji: Actually, what you're suggesting is exactly what we're looking for. :)

HERE I "POST" TO SAVE THE *inhales tons of oxygen*, original cosplay photoshoot that Admin came up with which by the way is a great idea, DAY! I'm postin' cuz I have the perfect place to reference original cosplay. That place is a website called "NEWGROUNDS.COM". Just go to www.newgrounds.com and you will be able to witness sooo many different original ideas for the original cosplay photoshoot. Don't worry, the flash game and movie makers aren't under a strict patent pending for cosplaying their characters. So check it out and GO FOR IT!

That STILL wouldn't constitute "original"...

Does the costume character have to have a particular name?

Is there a particular theme that is being looked at?

Anything original is fine, name not required. If you have something you can describe it with that'd be cool though.

Mine will be bordeline, as it happens to be a persona of mine, which relates to a character I cosplay.

Wait...NO not Pimp$ugyu, in case anyone thought that.

No, I will be cosplaying an online Persona of mine. This costume might be going against the rules, but I think it'll be ok. If not I won't get pictures taken of me. Seeing you guys will be worth the trip. I don't want to spoil it so I will keep it a secret for now. I might be coming. Might get a ride. Hope I see you all there!
