In-Character Cosplay Contest

 The In Character Cosplay Contest will be an event at Colossalcon 2017 where a group of signed up participants will compete to prove who is the most in character cosplayer. Through a series of rounds we will eliminate competitors until only the top three are crowned! All contestants must have a badge! No exceptions!

    • Participants
      -People interested in participating in the contest will sign up prior to the convention and be given the task of preparing a 20-30 bit that they will deliver on stage in the first round of the contest. It will be a first come first serve sign up. If there are not enough participants or some people show up late/not at all, we can take on site participants to fill up the numbers.
      -All characters and costumes are allowed but they should be something that does actually exist with content that anyone can find. Original characters are heavily discouraged. Variant/Alternate Universe characters (Ex. Emo “Character”, School Boy/Girl “So and So”) can be allowed but they will have to really sell it in order to make it through the rounds.
    • Rounds
      Round 1: In round one the players will be given a time set between 20-30 seconds to deliver a line, monologue, or action that is befitting to their character. If they exceed the limit they will be stopped and the next contestant will go up and deliver their piece.

Once all the competitors have gone, the judges will deliberate on their choices and eliminate 15 contestants.

  • Round 2: For round 2 the judges will take turns giving each contestant a topic/subject in which they must act out for at least 45-90 seconds. Examples could include: Being lost in the jungle/city, having to take out the trash, flying an airplane, delivering an invigorating speech to warriors, seeing a beautiful woman, etc.

Once all the competitors have gone, the judges will deliberate on their choices and eliminate 15 contestants.

  • Round 3: In the final round the contestants will be given a random scene, generated at random from the pool of ideas submitted by the crowd (See set up), that they must act out as their characters that involves working together with a random audience member. Each contestant gets 60-135 seconds.

Once all the competitors have gone, the judges will deliberate on their choices and crown the top 3 contestants.
