Men vs Cosplay 2013 Wrap Up/Input - Help us plan our next project!
Please help us plan for the coming year! Instead of a 3-4 month crunch that his year was, we have more time to plan. :)
Your Website, Facebook, etc?
For those who have the calendar: Did you have a favorite month(s)?
Calendar months recap is here:
Calendar price: Was it affordable to you?
We broke even on this run with supplies, shoots, printing, shipping, etc. We over-spent on international shipping in some spots, but it wasn't too bad. So, we learned a lot to apply for next year. How was the cost for you?
I wish it was a little cheaper.
Affordable: The right price for the calendar.
Definitely Affordable: I would be willing to pay more next time to support you guys.
What cosplay genre would you want to see next time?
Wall Calendar vs Desk Calendar?
Would you want another wall calendar (12-18 months, same size), or a one-a-day desk calendar with 365 guys featured (like this one, with guys instead of cute animals
Wall Calendar (12-18 months)
Desk Calendar (365 days, compact tear-away style)
If you provided multiple options, I'd get them all.
I'd be fine with either.
[FOR COSPLAYERS] 365 Day Calendar: Would you be willing to participate and be featured in the calendar even if you didn't get a free one?
For a 12-18 month calendar, we can afford to budget and provide those involved a free calendar. At 365, we could not afford that. At 365, we can feature a LOT more guys, but we sadly cannot give away that many calendars to cosplayers involved. Would that be OK for you?
I would be willing to buy a calendar I was featured in, but I would like a discount.
I would be willing to buy a calendar I was featured in, at full price.
I would NOT want to participate unless I got a free calendar.
I would love to participate for the exposure, but I could not afford to buy one.
[FOR POTENTIAL SPONSORS] Would you want to participate in swag giveaways?
We mailed out 450 packages our first year, and gave away stickers (sponsored by Phoenix Gaymers) and discount codes (sponsored by Geek Lurv). Do you have a company you'd like to promote to Men vs Cosplay fans? We don't charge sponsors who want to give stuff away to our fans. :)
I would like to be contacted about this opportunity (being promoted with the next Kickstarter).
I have a one-time giveaway idea for the Facebook or Twitter page to promote my geek/cosplay-related business or site.
I am in touch with some cool cosplay/gaming/comic/geek companies, and would love to help get giveaways for the website, conventions, and more.
Would you like to participate more next year?
While I put this project together, it could have not been accomplished without the amazing group of people that helped me out.
I am a male cosplayer, I'd love to be in it!
I am a photographer, I'd love to submit a photo!
I'm a great proofreader, I can help edit.
I'd love to offer suggestions on characters I'd like to see.
I'd be happy to volunteer at a Men vs Cosplay table or booth at conventions.
I'd love to be a street-team photographer, and help you showcase guys at conventions around the world.
What kind of expanded content would you want to see in the future, on male cosplayers?
I would like to post more content on the site - convention write-ups, cosplayer interviews, tutorials.
Convention Write-Ups (summarizing how fun a con is for cosplayers, attendees, and photographers).
Tutorials! These guys are inspiring me to build, but where do I start?
Interviews! I'd like to learn more about the men behind the masks.
Other resources for cosplayers (supply websites, tips and tricks).

Cosplayer news in general
What kind of Men vs Cosplay swag would you buy?
I'm a geek for swag! But it's hard to decide what to make. Help!
Prints of the Guys
Wallpapers and digital goodies
I don't really need male cosplay swag.
