Having Fun With Cosplay Contest

A few days ago I got a quite interesting request: ‘Can you make a blog entry with some tips for anybody participating in a costume contest?’

So yeah, I guess why not!

Many of you surely watched or maybe even participated in a masquerade – and even won one of those! However it’s not uncommon that the decisions the judges make seem a little bit odd from the outside. Why did these costumes win, while others were a lot more impressive? Why did this performance get an award? And what was wrong with my own costume or performance? What can I do better next time?

Contests are fun!

One thing before we start: Every costume contest, every stage and also every judge is different, so there is no ''definitive'' way to win an award. Your first reason to participate in such an event should always be to have fun. It’s surely frustrating if you put months of hard work, blood and sweat into your project and only be disappointed afterwards – this happened to me as well – but also keep in mind that you will meet many amazing and skilled people during these contests. You’ll maybe even find a true friend there! Conventions are always busy and crazy and the calm backstage area of a contest is the perfect opportunity to chat with all these people you maybe already follow online for months and years already.

Now, about the costume contests – and there are a lot of different types!

Masquerades are usually the most straightforward and are quite popular in the US and Canada. You simply dress up, maybe show the judges your costume before you walk on stage, do a pose and… you are done. These contests are usually quite popular and big since everyone can participate and there are not many requirements. They often take a lot of time, so be prepared for that. Costume contests in Europe however are focused on the craftsmanship as well as the performance of every participant. The relevance of the performance part is often based on the size of the stage and time you have for your skit. Simply check the contest rules before you sign up, especially if you don’t feel comfortable with being on stage in general.

Years ago I participated in a bunch of contests, but today I stop joining any cosplay contest with some many reason in life. You need to remember this:

*A successful competition for me is always going out there and putting 100 percent into whatever I'm doing. It's not always winning. People, I think, mistake that it's just winning. Sometimes it could be, but for me, it's hitting the best sets I can, gaining confidence, and having a good time and having fun.
