Anime Boston State of Cosplay Events Address - UPDATE

Post by Kiarrens » Wed Nov 04, 2015 10:21 pm

Members of Anime Boston, my fellow cosplayers:

As of this writing (March 10th, 2016) applications for all cosplay games events are CLOSED!

Thank you for your patience. Results for games will be posted on the Cosplay HQ as coordinators make their final decisions. Good luck!

If you have any questions, please feel free to comment here or contact us at masquerade@animeboston.com (for masquerade questions) or cosplaygames@animeboston.com (for questions regarding any of our cosplay game events).

Keep working hard on those costumes - we look forward to seeing them in March!

Not really any question but I am really looking forward to when the applications will open up. Because I can once again get my butt on the plane and make the trip from Sweden to attend Anime Boston. I will of course apply to as many events as I can :) See you all this spring!
Cosplays 2012:
Iori Yagami-King of fighters (Participated in the Death match)
Archer-Fate Stay Night (Seen in Chess match)
Roy Mustang-FMA

Cosplays 2016:
Archer-Fate Stay Night 100%
Domon Kasshu- Mobile Fighter G Gundam 100% (Will actually be worn at a con for the first time.)
Iori Yagami - King Of Fighters (Just cause I will not be able to get any new cosplay done in time.)

Thanks for all of the info! I'm super excited!

I did want to ask how heavily experience weighs into the cosplay games. I've never participated before, but I worked really hard on my cosplay this year and I'd like to try!

Thank you!

As far as how participants for Anime Boston's Cosplay Events are chosen:

Our choices depend on a number of things, but the biggest ones are acting experience, quality of your costume, and how recognizable/popular your character is. We do accept a few people every year who have no experience whatsoever and we also accept some characters who aren't from popular "mainstream" anime, so don't be afraid to apply.

Note: Please be aware that applicants for the Cosplot are more highly screened than other events, as participating in the Cosplot requires a lot of work before and during the convention. For this "event" we prefer to work with people who have prior experience in Anime Boston's Cosplay Games.

Thanks so much for the reply! I appreciate you taking the time to answer.

I'll apply regardless, and I know that I'm going to have a great time whether I'm chosen or not. I'm excited to be back to AB after three years away!

The change that was made regarding February 1st applied only to Masquerade Performance (folks doing skits), at which point we'll be deciding who makes the initial cut of those applicants. Applications as a whole, including both Craftsmanship and Performance, are not closing until March 4th.

Brian was close to the right answer, but not quite correct. :)
We are currently up to 40 entries total out of 50. Once I hit 50, I will be closing the Craftsmanship applications and sending out emails to everyone to let them know if they are in, or waitlisted. I would guess that this will probably be sometime next week, but it will depend on how quickly those last tenpeople sign up!

I've replied to the first part of this in the other thread you posted the question.

As for experience, while it's not necessary to be accepted, acting experience does help when choosing participants.

Craftsmanship applications are now closed as all of the spots have been filled.

Keep up all the hard work on your costume though, and please feel free to stop in to HQ to show it off!

There is a waitlist as well, but the last spots for that just filled recently. So, no, there are no spots, waitlist or otherwise.

If you're able to go next year and know early enough, we definitely encourage you to apply if you're interested again!

I know applications for Cosplay Games are closed, and I got all my applications in, but I just realized I made a mistake in listing one of my group members by a shortened version of their first name instead of their full name. Will that make an impact, and if so, is there a way to fix it?

If you have any edits such as that which need to be done, I would suggest emailing the respective coordinator for that event as soon as possible so they can fix it for you :)
