Cosplay Competition: Art Competition:

That’s an easy one... It’s just $12! (AUD)
We know times are tough for a lot of people right now, so we wanted the event to be as affordable as possible!

Is there a family option? Can we all share one ticket?

We know times are tough for many people, so we’ve done everything we can to make the event affordable for everyone, but we don’t have any family or group tickets available.

If you’re all watching from a single device, or only one of you is competing in eSports, then you can certainly share a single ticket!

However, if you want to participate in multiple live sessions at the same time, or if more than one of you wishes to enter one of the eSports events, then you will need multiple tickets.

  1. Best In Show – Awarded to the most memorable competitor! There’s no specific criteria for this award, so give it your all!
  2. Best Craftsmanship – Awarded to the competitor who has shown off their crafting skills. Whether you’re sewing, foam-smithing, or doing special effects make-up, we want to see how you’ve mastered your craft!
  3. Best Performance – Awarded to the competitor who best captures and displays their character. Facial expressions, poses, props and sets are all encouraged.
  4. Judge’s Choice – Awarded to the competitor the judges feel deserve special recognition.
  5. People’s Choice – Awarded to the competitor who receives the most votes from participants.

Check out our 'Cosplay Guidelines' to see what’s acceptable.

If you have worn your costume for any other competition at any convention and have won an award, you will not be eligible to win in this competition.

If you are unsure if your costume will be eligible, or you have more questions, get in touch with our team!

The short answer is ‘Yes’. Everyone is welcome to enter!

The long answer is that we want to reward the time and dedication put into crafting a costume, so purchased costumes will only be eligible to win the 'Best Performance'  and 'People’s Choice' categories.

We prefer it if you make your costume yourself, or if a bought costume has been significantly altered.

Since this event is online, and we don’t have to worry about people injuring each other, we’re trusting you to be safe in your own home!

 

Seriously though… don’t go swinging a steel sword around indoors or near other people… That’s just silly!
