RPG Original Character Cosplay Competition!

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby ShatteredSoul on Sun Oct 25, 2009 4:20 pm

Just think, you go out for Halloween as a complete individual, one of your OWN characters, and you look so awesome and epic, you get twice as much candy and win contests without even having to enter.. xD

Also, please note, you do not need money to do this, honestly you don't. I'm sure you might have some random things lying around, heck you could make a costume out of a blanket xD! You also do not have to choose an existing character, if you want to create a character for the sole purpose of this cosplay or something feel free! :)


The basics:


Well, for those who do not know, a cosplayer is someone who dresses up as a character from a movie, anime film, TV show, video game, etc for contests, conventions, or just for fun.
There are, however, no cosplays for Original character created by US!
So!
Here's the competition!
I challenge you, all of YOU, to pick your favorite or most developed character from RPG and make them REAL. How do you do this? Well, you make a costume/suit/outfit/whatever that you will wear and take a picture of. Go nuts with it! Use props! Scenery! Make items out of scratch, weld together a sword for all I care! Have fun with it! Be creative, and most of all, make the character come to LIFE the way YOU see them!


What's in for Me?!


Well, what's in it for you, you ask? I'll tell you!

Not only do you get an awesome and fun experience out of this, but you also get the chance to be voted on by all of your friends and co-members here on RPG. If you get the most votes, you'll win:
-A customized edition of you submitted photo to truly portray everything you can not show, in a choice of: Avatar, signature, or even a book cover. (Go for the book cover it's epic!)
-The glory of being known as the best original character cosplayer on the site
-A load of fun
-And maybe if I can think of something awesome I'll do that too XD


When do I have to do this by?!


Starting from now, October 25 you have until November 15'th to submit entries for the actual competition! However, if you want to submit photos after the competition deadline, feel free! If we can get submissions by November 1'st we will be able to hold a mini-poll and announce those winners at The All Hallow's Eve Ball. :)

How do I/what do I need to enter?


When you enter or post in general, you will need either a link to your character's profile page, or a detailed description of their appearance in your eyes. You will also need a photo of a picture of the costume itself and optionally (highly recommended) yourself dressed as the character.
HOW TO VOTE!!!


The voting poll will NOT be posted until the end of the competition!! What I will do is go back when the competition is over and put up a poll with a voting option for each submission in which other members will be able to vote for their favorite. At the end of the poll, the three first place winners will be picked and allowed to choose the prize they desire.

Have fun! Don't be afraid to give it a try!

Please rate my posts, as I work very hard and diligently on them, and well, I'd like my reputation rating to be a reflection of that.

Actually, for the past few years, every year on Halloween I choose one or another of the characters from my novels as my costume selection. In 2007, I was Natalie Elisabeth Schultz, an FBI counter-terrorism agent with Asperger's Syndrome. In 2008, I was Tahira Ali, an FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitive. This year, I will be Evan S. Drummond, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, who in my novel Starless Sky personally prosecutes Tahira Ali at her five month long trial.

And every year, I collect for Unicef! I have a party of at least several people joining me this year in my endeavors, and we are all going costumed!!!

Yes, I am insane. :) But in the best way possible. For are not all writers at least somewhat addled in the head? Never you mind. But there you go. Anyhow, I won't be posting a photo of myself on the Internet, just thought this was cool and vaguely relevant to my Halloween story? Yeah. You won't be seeing photos of Ylanne Sorrows on the Internet any time soon.

Lol awesome! Well, just to inform you, the rules have been altered. Instead a picture of the costume is required and a picture of yourself (though highly recommended) is optional!

I will be posting my cosplay costume today along with me in it.
Though I do not own the fedora anymore... It should have to suffice. I just have to find a long sleeved shirt and I should be fine.

I'll probably be joining this. It looks like fun! But what if I'm also cosplaying as a character from a preexisting manga/anime? Can I post pictures of that or just the original character?

BEST FRIENDS: Will break you out of the loony bin and drive you to New Mexico to meet up with the mothership.

Heh.. I've already done a cosplay of my character a few times before, but sadly I no longer have the expensive coat that I needed...

Haha, it's alright Sage you don't need it to be perfect ^.^
Seijun: I would prefer the original character competition-wise, but if you post pictures of both that'll be cool too ^.^

I'll probably cosplay as Raphael, and try to con my girlfriend into cosplaying as one of his Marine counterparts. I'll set to work, and probably post a pic by Halloween.
