Japanese Origin Only Contests

Hey guys, I tend to do a wide variety of costumes from different sources, and I like to compete sometimes. I noticed many contests have a Japanese origin only rule (as well as no originals).

I basically want to know, do Sakizou artwork costumes qualify for these types of contests? It's a Japanese artist, does that count? But could it also be considered fan-art/original and not acceptable?

Rules vary from convention to convention so the best thing to do is email the particular convention you want to wear it to. It's unlikely you'll have an issue but it is always good to double check!

I would especially do it if it's an Anime convention specifically as some only allow cosplays of Japanese origin outright.

The rules against originals and "Japanese stuff only" tend to be found at Anime cons. Outside of that, at Sc-Fi and Comic cons, they tend to be much more liberal.
