Cosplay Games Application Rules

Post by cookiesweet » Tue Oct 03, 2017 1:32 pm

Hey everyone, I have a question that hopefully you can shed some light on. A group of friends and I want to do a Power Puff Girls cosplay and my friend want to apply to the games however, I feel like I remember them making a rule in the past few years that only characters from Japanese origins can apply and enter. I checked the FAQ on the website but the answer was very vague saying "While we are an anime convention, we do not require that cosplays be exclusive to Japanese media (unless you are planning on wearing the costume to participate in a specific cosplay event, like Masquerade or Chess)." So i'm assuming it's only Japanese origins but we wanted to double check. Thanks in advance!

Hey there!

Your reading of the rule is correct: Cosplay Game events can only accept cosplays of characters of Japanese origin. Since Powerpuff Girls are not of Japanese origin, so they would not be elligible.

That said, Powerpuff Girls are totally awesome and we'd love to see your cosplays - so feel free to drop by Cosplay Games HQ to say hello!

Okay, so it is as I had originally thought. My friend was so sure it wasn't a rule, that I had thought I had completely imagined it was thing! Thank you for getting backed to me, and we definitely looking forward to saying hi. :D

Unfortunately, anime adaptations of shows that originated outside of Japan also do not qualify.

For example, Iron Man / Tony Stark would not qualify just because an anime was made of Iron Man. The same applies to Power Puff Girl (original) and Power Puff Girl Z (anime).
