Right now our audio is just music. If we would want to add dialogue over it (not affecting the length of the audio) can we resubmit an audio file?

Right now, I only have one costume I'm bringing to AB finished and it's currently the only one with photos. I want to submit the other cosplay as well, but I obviously don't have photos of it yet since I will be starting on it after the holidays. Should I wait to apply for any cosplay games I'm interested in until I have both cosplays completed or can I just apply with one then add in the other one later? I've never applied for any of the games before so I'm not sure how this works.

deff was thinking the same black star but Im sure if you can at least wear the wig to prove your sticking to the anime im sure they will consider Im hoping the costumes I submitted was enough I only have pictures of my cosplays from years before but if Im chosen I will just cosplay that character. Im hoping not because I deff wanna be saeko princess serenity female soul lucy or erza not sure yet :)))

When is the deadline this year for Death match applications and Cosplay Chess applications? ( As I know it isn't first come first served as the Masquerade is! Correct me if that has changed! :3 )
I'll be getting my cosplays finished up in the next week or so; I won't be able to put up the pictures of my newest costume till then!

Also, does anyone happen to know the theme for this year's Cosplay Chess??

Is it like first come first serve for the cosplay games? Does sending in our applications earlier increase our chances of getting in? ..

I do believe it is not first come first served and that they want all applications before they start choosing participants for the different cosplay games.

Still I myself would not consider an early application a bad thing as long as your costume is done. (Need to take a couple of photos of my latest costume as the wig is done now.)

I also was interested in the Chess application- but it doesn't really say what the theme is.
The only descriptions I can find are very generic.

Hello, to answer a few questions:
With the exception of Masquerade, cosplay events are not first-come-first-served. So please take your time to work on your cosplay and take a full picture of you in your cosplay before the applications deadline. Participants for Chess, the Dating Games, and Death Match are often chosen for having accurate costumes, so we need pictures to make sure you have completed the outfit and it is very recognizable to the audience.
If you have not finished the cosplay before the end of the deadlines, then please take a picture of how far you have gotten and include in the costume's notes what you still have to do. Again, the event staff only look at applications after the deadline, so you have untill then to finish the outfit and take a nice picture.

This year's chess theme will see the forces of Order battling against unruly Chaos. For the purposes of teams, characters that are lawfull evil, lawfull good, or characters that act off of straightforward principals shall work together on Order; characters that are selfish, chaotic, or you just cant figure out what they're thinking will be Chaos.

Say you were doing a second version outfit that a character wears in the series, would that be allowed or should only be a more recognizable outfit the character wears? And if so for the applications should we send a picture of our cosplay and a picture of what it should look like?

i want to participate in the cosplay games like chess and the dating game, but i'm not going to be wearing a costume that's anime/video game related. I plan on being either the 10th Doctor from Doctor Who or Two Face from batman the animated series. will that hinder me from possibly being chosen?

The cosplay I wish to apply for the games with I just ordered last week, but since it's the Chinese Lunar New Year there was a notification that my costume might not arrived until early March. Would there be any chance of my cosplay still being accepted if my costume doesn't arrive on time and I don't apply until later? :c

@boken2007: Anime Boston has stayed committed to being an Anime convention, so event coordinators will look for characters that have Japanese origins. However non-anime characters have been accepted in the past if they fit a theme really well or a need arose for them. So please feel free to apply, but know that there is a smaller chance of your character being accepted into an event.

@bittersweetdemons: We often get applications for characters in alternate outfits, so feel free to submit a cosplay with a different look. We are currently only asking for a picture of people in their cosplays, rather than a picture of the actual character, so you do not need to include a reference picture from the series. There is a portion in the application to name the version, so if the alternate outfit has a moniker, or an episode it was featured in, then that would be the place to name it.
Applications to cosplay events will close on February 28th. So you have until then to finish your cosplay and submit a photo of yourself in your costume. If your outfit hasn’t arrived before then, then the next best thing would be to take a photo of yourself in as completed a cosplay as you have, and include a picture from the site where the outfit was purchased from. Then explain in detail in the extra information section what the rest of your cosplay will look like when completed so coordinators have an idea what to expect from you. Because the events are not first-come-first-served, everyone’s applications will be looked at after February 21st, so I hope your outfit arrives before then.

Where do I sign up for the games? I really need to know this. Is there a link to the page? I must be overlooking it somehow... :cry:

From the lovely navigation bar on the main page, click the Cosplay button, which will have a list pop down. From that, Cosplay HQ will come up, which has its own list of links. First fill out My Info, My History, and My Costumes with all of the necessary things those pages bring up.

After that is all filled out, you can go to Cosplay Games (the one on the same list as My Info, not the one on the main Navigation bar,) where you can click to apply to events and choose which costumes you'd like to apply with.

With the con only a month away, has anyone hear if they are in the games and chess?
I was just wondering because if I am not in what I applied for then I may not bring the costume. Needs some minor repairs after Katsucon. I don't know if I should fix it up or just focus on the Masquerade since I know I am in that.

Applications dont close untill February 28th. Everything will be reviewed by each events' coordinators then. A short time after that e-mails will be sent out informing everyone if they got in or not, and which character was accepted.

Does the applications for the cosplay games close at midnight on the 28 or at some point during the day of the 28?

When you get notified if you made it or not, are you supposed to get the notification in the HQ and and email? I got rejected from the dating game and I got an email for that but for the Death Battle the HQ said I was rejected but I never got an email.
