Along the way he’ll make some close allies, while facing even fiercer rivals. Is Tommy ready for the challenges ahead of him in his first year? He thinks so. Only time will tell!”

The Cosplay Contest & its RULES!

j1-con_cosplay_contest

We are going to keep it real simple. Are you cosplaying? Yes? Then welcome to the Cosplay Contest!!! Show up in your cosplay and be as enthusiastic and as in character as possible to win! There will not be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner in these categories. There will be a WINNER and HONORABLE MENTION. There will be lines made for the specific categories at the beginning of the contest.

I know it’s hard to believe , but it’s really that simple.

These are the CATEGORIES 

- Best Female Hero

- Best Male Hero

- Best Female Villain

- Best Male Villain

- Best Group (2 or more people)

- Best In Show

Your cosplay can be store bought or 100% handmade. As long as you have the “spirit” of the character then that gets counted as a plus. Just make sure NOT to do a whole monologue. KEEP IT SHORT! There are other cosplayers waiting to present their costumes (unless it’s asked by the crowd).

Hint: Bring source material like print outs of what the character looks like so that it makes it easier to compare to your costume.

The Cosplay Contest starts at 6:30pm and will be Hosted by Eric “The Smoke” Moran, who is well known in the independent wrestling world for over a decade. He’s also an actor, producer, an official DC Comics comics book character and a well known cosplayer, including the Cosplay Contest host on the television series “Heroes of Cosplay”.

THE THREE (3) JUDGES HAVE NOT BEEN ANNOUNCED. It’s a secret. :)
