Cosplay Contest: Photo Style

Garb yourself as one of your favorite characters. We will be doing a cosplay photo contest. Rather than having a judge and live walk you will get a photo taken somewhere in the park by Have Camera, Will Cosplay with no charge to you. The photos will be uploaded to the Nerd Chapel FB page and people will then be able to vote with reaction buttons (like, laugh, wow, etc.).

Sign up at the cosplay table by the aritsts and authors. Here are the rules for our cosplay photo competition.

Cosplay Contest Rules

  • You will have a photo taken at the Nerd Chapel Park Party in Pomona Park by Have Camera, Will Cosplay. All cosplay contest photos will be posted in a FB album which you will be able to share to encourage your friends and family to vote on by clicking the reaction buttons of the actual photo in the original post. All reactions count as one vote.
  • Nerd Chapel’s Park Party is a family friendly event. Content for the cosplay contest should not go beyond PG-13.
  • Be clever, not crass! If you think your costume or presentation might be too risqué or offensive, it probably is.

  • Do not bring airsoft guns.
  • Entrants must abide by the event weapons policy. All prop weapons must be presented to the cosplay booth for inspection. -Pointing weapons at anyone not in your Cosplay group will NOT be tolerated.
