Cosplay Games Applications Extended Until Sunday, 3/5

Post by sohopefully » Tue Feb 21, 2017 10:37 pm

Good evening all!

Edit: After careful consideration, we have decided that applications for Cosplay Games will remain open until 11:59pm on Sunday, March 5. Please get your applications in ASAP!

In case you've missed it, we are looking for applicants for the following games this year:

Cosplay Deathmatch
Cosplay Couples Game
Cosplay AfterDark Dating Game
Cosplay Match Game
Cosplay Lip Synch Battle (NEW FOR 2017!!!)
Cosplay Chess

There are some great forum posts about these games. Please feel free to post any questions there, here, or reach out to Cosplay Games via email.

If you are interested in applying, please head on over to Cosplay HQ, update your cosplayer history, be sure to have photos of your cosplay(s) uploaded, and submit an application for as many events as you please!

A few reminders:

1) We can only accept cosplays for Cosplay Games events that originate in Japanese media. We have received a number of submissions that will not be eligible to participate. Please make sure that your cosplay is originally from a Japanese show/game/manga source. If in doubt, please get in touch with the staff and ask. There will be no exceptions to this rule.

2) If you are applying with a group, please make sure that all members of your group have submitted applications. Even if group members are listed on other people's applications, they will not be able to participate if they do not submit their own applications.

3) If you are applying for Couples Game, please sign up with a partner. We generally do not have the ability to match you. If you don't have a partner, we encourage you to use the forum to find someone.

4) Have your application in before 11:59pm on March 5, 2017! We will not be able to consider any applications after this time. You won't be able to submit them, and we won't be able to look at them, even if you email them to us.

That should be all! Thank you for taking the time to consider participating in our events. We look forward to reviewing all of the fantastic applications that we receive. And we look forward to seeing all of your fantastic costumes at Anime Boston 2017!

I just found out about how to apply to the contest. No one I asked or anywhere I looked could tell me where to find this.
If there's ANY chance I could get into the DeathMatch, I would really be appreciative. My cosplay was specifically made for this convention, and I'd love to have a shot at showing everyone my hard work. I'll be cosplaying Goku Black from Dragonball Super.
I have a very unique twist on the character, and it'd be very great for everybody if I partake in the event.
Here's my email, please let me know:

I'm sorry, but not only has the deadline passed for submissions, but I picked all of the participants last night and just now finished the bracket. I'm sorry that this has happened, but there were places where it was posted.

Hi, I applied for a few of these games and never got an email (had my application in since January 3rd and he had his in a few weeks after...but both well before the deadline). I assume that neither myself nor my boyfriend got into the games as neither of us got emails. Please let me know.


-Nevermind. I saw the message earlier in the thread. I'll wait until the 19th!
