We have a super active anime and manga community on Wikia, and would love to try to organize a costume contest for anime and manga cosplayers, but I'm worried that we may be going too narrow by limiting it to just those categories.
I'd love to hear from anyone here about suggestions on this. Does anyone else here think we're going too narrow? Also, I'd love to hear if any of you know if there's a good crowd of cosplayers at C2E2? We know it's a pretty new show.
I'm not sure if you're in the right subforum, but I'll do my best to answer your question.
There's a good amount of cosplayers at c2e2, but the majority of them are based on Western properties- DC/Marvel, MLP, MSPA, Doctor Who etc. You may want to expand your contest to feature, manga, anime and Japanese video games (Final Fantasy, Capcom, etc) to reach a broader audience.
