From what I hear Sofla is the closest thing to normal in this state as far as cosplay goes. That might be why you've had ok experiences. That, or you bedazzle the shit out of your costumes. My experience with this state is that it's the same 4 judges who judge every contest and they look for the same things for every best in show. This state loves Sakizou and certain cosplayers know that and win big with it. With the same judges judging every time with no swap outs (like out of state cons) cosplayers learn what the judges like and do those things to win BIS.

and one more effed up thing about contests in our state... EVERYBODY WINS AN AWARD! Wtf. I've never sat through such long award ceremonies. There shouldn't be- best comic, best scifi, best anime, best video game all in one contest. The more awards you give out the more worthless they become.

Does anyone In Tampa ALWAYS see these two guys at every con? They are both early 20's or late teens, and they dress and act like skate boarders. They even skate outside the cons sometimes. Anyways, I think these guys are youtubers. The shorter blonde one always is on his phone, but actually has a camera recording. The taller one with brown hair will walk up and start talking to people, but he acts very weird, but in a comical sense. Then he'll say awkward things but act completely normal after he says weird shit. He never breaks character the whole time he's there. The blonde guy recording always is silent,
But occasionally I see him crack a smile and look like he's trying not to laugh. Be on the lookout, they aren't mean by and means, but I seriously think these guys must have a YouTube channel where they mess with people in character. One of my friends claims he saw them at a mall doing the same thing. I'm gonna search YouTube for them now actually. They don't give off a creeper vibe so I don't think it's for personal reasons.
The taller guy is about 6'0 with long brown hair to his shoulders. He looks... part Asian? White features but dark slanted eyes. Second guy is blonde with messy skater hair, and is about 5'7.

We get good judges when cons stop using the benchmark "has shot with david love" as meaning amazing craftmanship. All those girls buy their shit and the stuff they make is awful and theyre awful at cons. 80% of geek fest's guests were david love models it's stupid.

Actually Florida is a massive hub for some of the best photographers not only in the country but the world. Shit I'm one even(pro, I'm not boasting just that I do good work).
The reason photographers for these expos are garbage is because anyone worth a damn is so knee deep in work that getting them to shoot your gigs, especially for 3 days is far from cheap since they have to block off important days on their calendars. And as we all know money is tight when it comes to Cons no matter where it is., I guarantee you half the people in this thread with a $200 SLR could do what he's doing without breaking a sweat

>> No.8933725

Hi Travis, you sound extra butthurt today. I've seen David's equipment in person, his lens probably at most are $1000. Pro work like that actually requires a camera and lens that can adjust to crazy iso, shutter speed and apertures. A little shitty $200 SLR doesn't cut it. Not to mention the lights and etc it must take to make such a perfectly lit subject in studio. Then try to do all the photoshop work.

none of those anons you replied to, but from your passive aggressive comment you seem like you cant take criticism well. for the future, plan a design out on the computer and print it, or plan the sign out in pencil before inking it.

Im just going to leave this here. Not only is that cyborg cosplay is horrible yoh and his partner are always asking people for money to attend out of state cons. I myself work hard for my passion and hobby (cosplay) not once have í asked people for money and have accomplish alot. You say ves changed? Bull shit he will never change.

I was trying to figure out what to do with it when I realized it looks close enough to Travis the photog to repaint it to be him. But then, what do I do with it after?

I don't know if it's the general opinion or not but it just seems that once you've won once with a costume (even just winning a judge's award), you shouldn't enter it in again.
I know there's this couple that compete at multiple contests with the same costumes. They were the BiS at Omni in 2015. I heard they placed this year at Omni and then I actually saw them place BiS at Conjure the next day in the same costumes.

>> No.8948844

Eh...I agree in theory but if you busted your ass to make something really nice I think its OK to take it to other shows as long as it's relevant to that con. You got a great Deadpool costume? Cool... but don't take it to anime or horror cons.

>> No.8948859

>>8948844
True. Though this couple don't really do anime cosplays. They did like Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf at Omni, which it worked for Conjure since the con seemed more focused on special fx, but Omni is more anime focused, isn't it?

If you win a big award then make something new. Most contest don't have any rules against re-entering costumes so people compete in the same thing.

>> No.8948983

But that implies that the person didn't place, which is fine, but if they placed before with that costume, shouldn't they not enter it in another contest? Just seems like a dick move

The pool is small enough in Florida to where everyone usually knows if you re-enter something, and it's usually judges OR other contestants who will spot it.

Even if you don't think the judges caught it, other cosplayers definitely did and don't forget shit like that.

Some people have fallen through the cracks in the last few years because of small conventions using under-qualified judges who don't even know how to sew and don't care about contests other than using them for their own self-promotion.

Huh? No it isn't. a few dozen people on cgl care, no one else. Florida cosplayers have been winning at Dragoncon, AX, otakon, Acen, AWA, katsucon and all sorts of events for many years. It's the same way for cosplayers all over the country, although they suffer from it a little less simply because their states aren't geographically isolated like Florida. Once you win a lot of local contests, there is grumbling and resentment, so you go on to bigger and bigger venues to compete. There is no "label" or curse. No one really cares, not even when cgl was in its prime.

Temjin, you're a civil guy and all but let's be honest, since when the fuck did we allow affirmative action in cosplay skit contests?

The reason Florida con scene has so much hate for itself imo is because these judges don't understand what it means to judge costumes/skits objectively without pandering to SJWs, furthering their own pathetic "careers" or doing favors for people so they can hold it over the said cosplayers' heads. I'm not sure how bad it is in other states but seriously, did you SEE the entries for Omni's skit contests?

I wasn't there so I cant really say, only saw the videos. It saddens me that the strike witches girls didn't win though since I adore that show.

If the judges were going by the crowd reaction as a gauge of what would go over well in an overseas venue, I could see it making sense in a way.

Did Metro's brute squad give you shit too? I was an artist last year and they were rude and unhelpful the whole time. Gave us grief late at night when we asked if someone could watch our table and merchandise as we brought stuff back and forth to the car (since the AA was in an open area we had to break down everything every night). At other times several staff members just stood around and watched us carrying giant boxes up the stairs and struggling to open doors. My friend tripped and dropped a big several gallon container and a drugged up raver girl stopped to help her, not anyone associated with Metro. At one point when the boombox brigade wouldn't shut the fuck up and several attendees and some artists were having migraines and other problems one of the dicks in kilts looked at me like I was insane when I asked for help in getting them to turn their music down. He started getting kind of aggressive and didn't understand what my issue was, and so never offered any solutions and I just sort of gave up in frustration and walked away. They shouldn't be so intimidating to people who come forward to them for help when it's the whole reason they're there. I get that they have to be like bouncer asshole tough guys to deter rule-breakers, but if something serious had happened to me at that con I would not have been comfortable asking for help from them. I don't know. I don't expect special treatment but I'm used to con staff at other places being very helpful, friendly, and active with artists. Plus at my old day job customer service and PR was kind of hammered in to me so I lose a lot of respect for places and people that don't hold that same standard and act professional and willing to assist.

Ran into Jean WanWan back at Katsucon where she kept bragging how she was a big fan of the Fate/Stay series but yet every time someone tried to invite her to the Fate gathering she would be a snob and say no impolitely. She is pretty full of herself and have to say she maybe a fan of Fate but her attitude is telling me otherwise. Same thing with here Shimikaze from Kancolle. The only reason she is probably cosplay her for is that is the most overexposed character in the series. Kind of obvious to see it. She stays to herself and hangs out with her other wannabe Efame buddies like Shiro cosplay.
