So we're getting more aggressive with the DCP CosPlay Challenge, as announced a few weeks ago, and issuing a dare to all those out there planning to attend AnimeFest.
We DARE you to cosplay as a Phantom Squadron character at AnimeFest!
To make this worth your while, remember, here's the rules for the CosPlay Challenge:
Create a Phantom Squadron-inspired costume, then model it and take a picture, and post it on the Internet. Send us here at DCP a link so we can find your picture. At the end of the year, we'll judge all the entrants, score them, and the winner will receive the entire Phantom Squadron series, signed and personalized, as well as their choice from the DCP Zazzle store.
Certain things gave bonus points, such as having the picture appear at Fandom Base, or for convention pictures. There was a 10 point bonus for conventions, and a 15 point bonus for major conventions. We will be including AnimeFest in this category, so AnimeFest costumes will get the 15 point bonus.
For your opportunity, check out the Phantom Squadron books, either in print or on several e-book platforms. Then make your costume, snap your pictures, and put 'em online. You have until the end of December ... so get crackin'!
