Have you got what it takes to impress our panel of Local and International Cosplay Masters? If so, you could walk away with €250!
We recognize the talent the Irish cosplay community has to offer and we want give them a chance to showcase their skills at RAID 2018! We welcome cosplayers of all levels to show off their cosplay on stage. So with that in mind, we’ve built two main stage events!
We’ll be releasing more details on prizes in the coming weeks, but now’s the time to start jotting down your ideas and thinking of what props and materials you’ll need to get your hands on to show your best on the main stage.
WHEN WILL THE CONTEST HAPPEN?
The cosplay competitions will take place on Sunday, 1st of April. We’re nailing down the final details, however, all costumes will be pre-judged so you can show off your costume without the pressure of performing for judges.
WHERE WILL THIS TAKE PLACE?
Pre Judging will take place on site in a private setting with judges, and the announcement will take place on stage, where all participants will be given the chance to show off their work.
HOW WILL THE CATEGORIES WORK?
• Pro – Groups and individuals who have signed up ahead of the live event. You’ll have approximately 90 seconds on stage to showcase your costume, guided by our host. Even prepare a skit if you think it might help you secure that €250 prize.
• General – Single entrants who would like to just show off their cosplay on stage with a more relaxed, less competitive feel. Costumes can be made or bought and no prejudging is required but is available if requested.
