We've added categories for this year's Comic Con Revolution "Cosplay Revolution" to give you even more chances to win! We will have awards for the following categories: Best Hero, Best Villain, Best Youth, Best Group, Funniest, Best TV/Movie, Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Judges' Choice, and Best in Show.
Judges will be scoring for the following categories: overall difficulty, creativity, accuracy (for recreation).
The following rules apply to ALL entrants, be they Individual Entries or Group Entries. Whether flying solo or in a group of any size, every individual person in the show will be held to the rules below! Entry into the event is at the discretion of the event staff, and we reserve the right to reject ANY entrant whose costume does not adhere to these rules! This also goes for any entrant displaying disrespectful, rude or hostile behavior. All entrants must have a valid ticket to the Comic Con Revolution.
Store-bought costumes are NOT PERMITTED! Your costume needs to be one you made, modified yourself or made by a costume maker. Modifications will be carefully assessed by our judges and must be at least 30% modified from original piece. This applies specifically to accessories and the body of the costume itself; footwear and jewelry don't apply. Commissioned costumes will be allowed, if they adhere to the rules previously stated. We will also allow props to be commissioned by prop makers. While we do allow for a few minor pre-made, pre-purchased items, we are looking for craftsmanship and creativity. You may also give credit to those fellow costumer and costume makers who assisted you during the construction of your costume entry. Note: Unfortunately, we will not have any repair kits on hand. You are responsible for your own costume and its integrity.
For children modifications can be up to 60% to a store-bought item and can be made by an adult in your group or your guardian from scratch.
There will be children present and your costumes and presentation should be suitable for ALL ages.
AGE OF PARTICIPANTS
We welcome children of all ages to participate in the contest. All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
If your costume is an original design or not a recreation of something pre- existing, please bring a printed image of the original design/concept for the judges and be prepared to speak a little bit about it. We are completely open to new and innovative designs, especially those never before seen for familiar characters.
ONE ENTRANT, ONE CATEGORY
Every entrant is limited to participating in ONE category. There will be no multiple registrations for any individual for more than one category, meaning you may ONLY register yourself as one member in a Group Entry, OR as an Individual Entry Participant.
For those groups who are participating in a Group Entry must register the names of all individual participants and names of your costumes and theme i.e. DC Comics JLA Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. Group entries are a minimum of two people.
