Hi there! Just a couple of quick questions on the Thriftiness Award for Hall Cosplay.

All of my base items for the costume were purchased at stores, and then I modified most of them. I didn't sew any of the garments, though. Is that still something I can enter for consideration?

Thanks!

I was thinking about entering the Hallway Cosplay Contest, but there's a rule that says:

"-You need to bring at least one progress photo that is visible to the judges via print out, cell phone, ipod, computer, etc (we will be lax on this rule)"

I made my cosplay and Killstick with my dad back in 2005 and we never bothered taking progress pictures. Would I still be able to enter the contest?

Yes, but please let the judges know. Making jackets is hard!

Well, it says we'll be lax with it, and really it's up to the judges, so stop on by!

I have a couple of questions...

First, is this open to Acen staff or no?

Secondly, how do you divide the line between Novice & Journeyman? I know it's different at different cons. (I've won a Judge's choice workmanship award at Chicago TARDIS, that's it)

And third, I see the best American cosplay... what about a character from a BBC TV series? I have a costume that *might* be done by Acen that I'm thinking I'd like to enter.


I'm just curious because I'm tempted to enter, since I'm finally starting to get to the point where I feel comfortable submitting my work for judging (I've done the Chicago TARDIS Masq two years in a row now), but thanks to my staffing schedule it would be very difficult to enter the Masq and I also don't have very many anime costumes (very many = I have 1).


Thanks!

-As long as it does not interfere with your staffing duties.

-It's mostly up to the judges. It goes by how many awards you've won and your craftsmanship.

-Well we've never had anyone enter from a BBC show before, so it's never been an issue. Again, it's ultimately up to the judges. No harm in coming by and seeing what they say!

Cool, thank you :) I would come by at a time when I'm off-duty. And so far I've only won the one award, I'm just getting my feet wet in competing (after nearly 6 years of cosplaying). So I guess I'll be stopping by sometime during Acen weekend!

Would a "Steampunk" version of a cosplay be considered? I have someone who'd like to do the Thriftiness, and theirs is more of a steampunk outfit than normal cosplay?

Do we just show up at the contest and hand you guys the forms? Or is there a pre-determined place to hand them in at?
Can the forms be hand-written with all of the information (like, if I forget it at home by accident), or do we have to print them out?

Thinking of trying this out for once finally maybe.
I'd like to enter something as Novice rather than Thriftiness but I'm not sure how completely from scratch things should be made.

I bought a leotard and from there all the details are hand sewn on it and I used different pieces of it to alter for different things. Do you know which category that would count as?
Oops can't afford to go to ACEN anymore! >:

I have a few questions; a few about the 'real name' you must provide on the form.

1. Why do you need this?

2. I would be fine giving my real name if the reasons are fine...but are you going to be saying this to everyone out loud? Is my name going to be announced?

3. If the names are going to be announced or used, and I have to provide a real name, can I also use a cosplay name?

4. I have the hair for the cosplay, but I don't have bangs. I ordered a 'fake' set of them from a woman in the UK who made them, who is obviously not going to be there to explain how she made them. Is this fine?

Thanks in advance!

1. So we know what to call you at judging and if/when you receive a prize and I call you, I'd like to know your name :3

2. If you do not want your name announced, we will not announce it.

3. You may use your cosplay name.

4. This is perfectly fine.

A couple of questions for you!

-Would you have to show up for all the time slots or just one?
-And do you have to stay the whole time?

Are we allowed to enter propes we entered last year, and thriftyness can they be closet cosplays we had on hand already or does it have to be modified in some fashion?

You only need to show up once - fill out the form, wait a bit for your turn to talk to the judges then be on your way! Masquerade rules are a bit different since they want everyone who signed up in one place at the same time. If you are entering two costumes in the hall contest you will need to go on both days since you can only enter one costume per day. "You may compete both days, but the costumes must be different and you can only compete once per day."
