There's a difference between wearing a costume and being a cosplayer. Anyone can don a Spiderman suit at a party just because it's a costume party. It's expected of people to buy the likeness of the latest pop culture figure at the store before Halloween because that's the cultural norm. But cosplay is more than that. It requires dedication to the craft-both in the costume and to the character.
Show off your hard work and dedication to your craft at Comic Con Okinawa's Cosplay Contest. Cosplayers of all ages are welcome. Each person will have two minutes to discuss their costume, and a panel of judges will choose winners in each of the categories. Contestants will be judged on costume accuracy, design, creativity, uniqueness and execution.
Costumes should be original or heavily-modified versions of off-the-rack items. Please keep the costume appropriate for family audiences. Avoid overly gory or sexual costumes that aren't appropriate for the kid-friendly audience (your costume may be rejected if it's inappropriate or unsafe). The contest is limited to 50 entries (group entries count as one) so register early.
Main Categories: Single (18 and up), Group (18 and up; minimum two, maximum four people), Young Fan Single (7-17) and Young Fan Group (7-17; minimum two, maximum four people). Youth category participants must have a parent or guardian present. Subcategories: Re-creation (costumes copied from an existing design) and Original Design (a costume design unique to the maker/wearer).
Registration for the Cosplay Contest will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Add this event to your calendar and stay tuned for a full list of rules and guidelines.
