Have you been slaving over making a cosplay for months? Well join the cosplay contest to show us the product of your hard work!

Rules:

  • This is a craftsmanship competition. Purchased accessories and props are ok, but you must have made at least 75% of the costume yourself.
  • Design must be from Final Fantasy XIV. Warriors of Light, NPCs, bosses, and creatures of all types are welcome as long as they’re in the game.
  • No sandbagging: This means your costume cannot have already received awards from another contest.
  • Your entry must include at least one (full body) finished photo of your costume while worn or on a mannequin. This will be featured when we announce winners.
  • You must have permission from your photographer if submitting photos from a photoshoot.
  • Please provide credits for your photographer and commissioned/purchased pieces (if applicable).
  • There will be a field to explain how you made your costume. Progress photos are encouraged but not required.
  • One entry per person.
