Not me. I cosplay mainly to be a character I like, not for the prizes.

I will just so that I can hang out with my friends. I may enter my Minmay so that I can show it off. I hope you win Vampirate. I love your Lulu Moggle. Are you gonna enter it?

I'll be entering Beliel aka Mad Hatter (AS), namely to get some friends off my back about entering her -_-;

I am inclined to enter my new Winged Serenity outfit. How does it work, though? Do I just.. walk through a room, or am I given a chance to explain the tedium that went into making 6-foot wings?

It's all about waiting backstage and hanging with bunch of crazy arse cosplayers talking about random stuff and singing "this is the song that doesn't eeeeeeend." ^_^

Wow! That's a lot. I really hope it's a good contest this year, can't wait to get there. ^^

I am totally excited. Last year's contest seemed so lackluster, but it was the first year I didn't actually compete.

It's so much more fun to participate than to observe.

the decission for my costume entry has come down to either Kurapika or Jin, I'd like to enter my Jin but I haven't completed the pants yet. (and that's what (litterally!) holds the outfit together o.o;; ) so if I don't finish that one in time, it'll be Kurapika.

(and yes, the means I AM (planning to) enter in the contest) ^_^

Okay, I'm slightly confused....

They're having a trophy for design, but they want costumes based off of pre-existing art not original designs? Mine is slightly original so I e-mailed them previously making sure I could enter it as a video game costume.

I'm not complaining or anything, I'm just a little confused.

And of course I'd love to be able to turn in my design with my reference pictures. But they just want what's basically some of my research pictures.

I've thought about this one a lot and I keep waffling on the "yes and no" aspect of it. I've finally made my first costume and although I'd really like to compete one day, I'm not sure that I should try it with my first costume.

Edit: and now that I know I could also enter a prop (like my opening R season brooch), I'm now debating if I should enter Princess Serenity or the brooch!! ACK!!

*sigh* The debate continues.

I wish I could do the costume contest (along with the AMV contest), but I'm gonna try again on both next year at any con.XC

I might enter the contest...it will be my first costume contest if I do enter. I only have Cyrax for my costume so it isnt really hard to decide who to cosplay for me LOL

Miss Vash
09-22-2005, 09:03 AM
I'd like to enter but I'm almost 100% sure that I wouldn't win, so I'm debating on whether or not to even try. But even if I don't enter I will be there cheering you guys on. ^_^

Nightmare
09-22-2005, 10:17 AM
It's not really about winning, although that it is great if you win. It's more of just having fun, like cosplay itself is suppose to be. Some people take it WAY to seriously, just relax and enjoy yourself, whether you enter and win or not. ^_^

09-22-2005, 11:03 AM
ya know...maybe this year I'll just watch and feel out what my competition is. ;)

Miss Vash
09-22-2005, 11:06 AM
Well, I've been in costume contests before, but I've never even seen a cosplay contest. @_@ I wouldn't know what to do. Aren't skits required or something? *sighs* I'm such a n00b.

Nightmare
09-22-2005, 12:16 PM
Actually, they don't allow skits. They have time restraints to deal with, so they just allow like 30 seconds on stage so that people can get a pic, then you move off the stage. Couple years ago, the contest lasted about 3 hours cause of all the skits. It was horrible. But other than that, it is pretty fun. And the past couple years haven't lasted all that long.

Miss Vash
09-22-2005, 01:10 PM
Hmm... I think I could deal with 30 seconds....

I'm still uncertain about entering though. We'll see. ^_^

09-22-2005, 02:12 PM
it's quite fun,and I don't care if I win,I do it just for fun ^^

Yeah I wann a take a pic with you cuz I am gonna go ahead and enter my Ultimecia. Peach State Cosplay needs a victory at this con.:jjacks:

Nightmare
09-22-2005, 04:20 PM
I hope that me and Ciarathallya win. It would be nice, but if we don't, it's all good.

Ichigo_Kurosaki
09-22-2005, 05:21 PM

09-22-2005, 05:38 PM
