Ep. 013 - Cosplay Contests, the Basics

This week we continue our cosplay contest series. What are contests like? What kind of advice do we have for different skill levels? Pannon and VFire cover all these in this episode. There is a lot we cover and the list we had barely got a dent in it. So stay tuned for next week when we cover stage performances! Yay!


Here are a few things from the episode for beginners:

1. Enter a contest to have fun!
2. Show the judges all the good things in your cosplay. You only have a limited time with them so show off your best!
3. Bring a reference picture. If you can only bring one picture, bring the reference image! The judges will love you for it.

And don't forget: BE THE JACKALOPE! The jack of all trades. Strive to be the Jackalope. ;)

Ep. 012 - "Civil War" Best in Show DCC

Welcome back to another week of fun interviews! This week Vermilion Fire talks to the lovely ladies of TTEAtime Productions. They were Denver Comic Con's Best in Show winners this past year and they had quite the amazing cosplays for it. I won't spoil it too much but their cosplays are of historic levels.


From Left to right we have Vermilion Fire as the Wanderer from Shadow of the Colossus, Elise in her historic garb, Lauren #2 as Ghost Rider, and Lauren #1 as herself! The TTEAtime girls have such passion and dedication to their work. Absolutely loved them!


Lauren #2 as Iron Man (or Iron Woman ;) ), Lauren #1 as Captain America, and Elise as Bucky. VFire is also there as Aloy, Horizon Zero Dawn, congratulating the winners. VFire was a guest judge for the contest and was just blown away by these cosplays. she just had to interview them!

What kind of fun mash ups or cross over cosplays have you seen? Share in the comments or on our Facebook group!
