    It is a lot of scrolling. A suggestion could be made to put the references under spoiler tags, but perhaps it's too late. :/
    Does Manga cosplays count?

    A few people have already used characters from games that haven't necessarily received anime adaptations yet and nothing concrete has been said against it so far, so go ahead. Why not.

    This is so bad. People are overlapping posts so much with their multiple large anime character references. Too much scrolling for just few posts. :/

    Some people are probably very excited/passionate about their cosplays and may enjoy the character quite a bit; it is a lot of scrolling but it's likely a contest people have been waiting a long time for to return so people are probs going all out with references and such

    Yeah i noticed. Just few days have passed and we already have 50 submissions. It's weird since other contests usually get ignored for a long time and it lasts for even a month or so and barely get like 50 entries. I guess people are really into cosplay here. I was actually curious about doing a cosplay irl, but i'm not brave enough for that and i'm not confident enough about my looks to actually do that.

    I was considering doing Altam IRL, but my issue is that I'm a perfectionist, and creating armor for cosplay beginners is rather daunting. That and I too am not entirely confident enough about how I look.

    YES, SAME. I'm a perfectionist too. I feel REALLY bad when i do something and it is not 100% like i wanted it to be. I usually drop what i do because of that. But this time i took a risk and just said "what done is done". Great example is my cosplay submission. I feel so ashamed and disappointed of it since the long boots aren't working with the outfit which my character is wearing and i couldn't find a good crown that doesn't make my character go green, purple or orange. Perfectionism is ruining my life :x

    Honestly, the look isn't as bad as you're saying it is with how the boots are or for the lack of a crown. Yours is one of the ones I consider to be accurate and have a good chance of winning despite the things you've said.

    But yeah perfectionism is dominating my life in too many areas ./rip

    -removed- I'm assuming those are both of the people in the screenshot. If anything, they should submit it as each character separately, not the "team" of characters. I don't see it not being allowed, as they are both participating in the cosplay; why should only one of the two people be allowed to enter/win one prize?

    That's what I'm wondering. As you said, each one should just have submitted individually and not as a team, but this contest really didn't have any specifics as if only 1 person will win in a group or all 3 (though pretty sure a transformation shouldn't count.)

    I also have another question... I see so many people submitting multiple screenshots (if I had knew I'd include more pictures since I had some later ideas) Does only the first one count?

    If a team cosplay of three people won, does it count as three out of the ten possible winners?
    Or is it only the submitter of the screenshot that counts as one winner?

    FAQ
    Q. Do game characters count?
    A. Nope anime only
    Q. If multiple enter with the same entry do they will x times
    A. "One entry per person. So all 3 wouldn’t win" ~ Katherz

    People should at least hide there references. People keep posting like 2-5 references and In game pictures per entry.

    can we get @Katherz on the phone about the topic of editing you're screenies? I mean, for my cosplay it is literally impossible to get it accurate without editing

    I'm under the impression cosplay isn't supposed to be 100%, it's supposed to be as close as you can get with what you've got and mainly it's supposed to be fun! :) Just go with it, without editing... We all want to see what you guys can come up with, with what we have access too.

    What Jazmyn said. Does not have to be 100% accurate, just use what you have made available to you. We are judging on the creativity of the cosplay.

    Seriously, like 90 entries now. Someone will have some hard time deciding 10 winners from all of these. :D

    character i chose does have some OVAs, even though the character is video game based so would that count?

    found something that has some animated shorts

    Just submit it since there's a guy who even submitted a cosplay of Monika from Doki Doki Literature Club. *cringes*
