Default Re: Cosplay Fashion Show Rules + Q&A

FAQ

Q: On what day will the Fashion Show be?
A: Just like previous years, the Fashion Show will be on Friday

Q: I have an OC (Original Character), can I still join the CFS?
A: Yes. If we get enough sign-ups, a category of it's own will be created within the CFS or otherwise you will simply be judged along with the rest. Do note that all of the same rules apply, including those of reference images! This will make participating as an OC harder compared to a regular character though, but we'd love to try this out and see where it leads us!

In the sign-up template, enter the fact that it's an OC at the "Source" question, and add the story/information of the character under "Additional Information".

Q: We want to do the catwalk run as a group, how do we sign-up?
A: You have to sign-up by filling in a seperate template for each person in the group. In the template you can write down you are going to run down the catwalk as a group. It is fine to supply us the files in a single archive though for all the people in the group.

Q:  How do I sign-up?
A: You have to use the following templates:Send an email using the email form on the website. The body (message) of the email will have to contain:
  • Subject: [CFS] (nick)name - character name, e.g.: [CFS] saniiro - staff member
  • Your name
  • Your Email
  • Your visitor number (or payment code if no visitor number has been received yet)
  • Download Link to the Sign-up template
If any of the information required is missing, the sign-up will be rejected. We will notify you if your sign-up has been received.


Q: How do I supply you with my music and reference image(s)?
A:  Send an email using the email form on the website. The body (message) of the email will have to contain:
  • Subject: [CFS] (nick)name - character name, e.g.: [CFS] saniiro - staff member
  • Your name
  • Your Email
  • Your visitor number (or payment code if no visitor number has been received yet)
  • Download Link to the material (sign-up template, audio, reference images). Please package all files together in an archive (ZIP/RAR/7z/GZIP) if in any way possible.
If any of the information required is missing, the sign-up will be rejected. We will notify you if your sign-up has been received.


Q: What is an "Archive" and how do I use it?
A: If you have trouble creating an archive, check out this tutorial. We accept the types of Compressed Folder (Windows Native)/ZIP/RAR/7z/GZIP. We highly recommend using this since it saves us a lot of trouble.


Q: I have no hosting of my own, how do I upload the files to you?
A: If you have no hosting available of your own, any of the below options would work:
Attached Files
File Type: doc abunai2010_cfs_signup_template.doc (64.0 KB, 5 views)
File Type: docx abunai2010_cfs_signup_template.docx (48.3 KB, 2 views)

It seems to be that this is not in the rules of the competition yet, but what is the time limit for an 'act'? (Is there even a time limit?)
I know you're not really supposed to do something like a skit or anything, but some nice choreographed poses to match my music would be nice.
And in that case, timing is essential.

so far we never put a time limit on the fashion show, but your not supposed to do an entire dance routine on stage.
usually the walk>stand>walk>stand>pose>get off routine takes around 2 to 3 minutes max.

Ah, okay!
I noticed that most contestants of last year needed about 50 seconds on stage, so I wondered if there was a limited stage time.
Thank you for answering :3.

I'm going to make the outfit together with my mom, but she is not going to the convention, is that a problem than?( i'm still learning and this one is a very difficult one I think so i'm going to need her help xD )

no you don't have to send a picture of the costume itself along with the sign-up. if you say it's self made, we are inclined to believe you ;-] making it together with your mom is fine, if it was completely her work it would be different.

the picture you have to send is reference material. so an image of the character wearing the costume you based yours on. this is so we can show this to the judges so they actually know what it is supposed to look like since they won't know each and every series, let alone all the costumes a certain character wears for like 5 seconds in a certain episode ;-]

Will there be a questionround for the judges at the rehearsel like last year?
As a judge, I found that more than valuable as you could see the outfits up close, every little stitch and detail.
That made our decision better argumented than just seeing them on stage. Being able to talk to the cosplayers about their blood, sweat and tears XD
*we all know we cosplayers bleed for our outfits*
