We've made our Perception checks, and we see Gen Con sneaking up to us in just a few short weeks, and that means our 8th annual Gen Con cosplay contest is nearly upon us! Time to show off your Craft skills!
Every contest needs rules (or so our Friendly NPC with ranks in Profession [lawyer] tells us), and the rules this year are much the same as in previous years. In order to qualify for some super-sweet prizes, your costume has to be sourced and identifiable as from Pathfinder or the world of Golarion. Dressing up as an iconic? Sweet! Dare to be Squealy Nord? Fantastic—I hope there are no goblins around and you don't get pulled into a We Be Goblins! LARP!
Swing by the Paizo booth and seek me out (don't worry, my Stealth isn't that great), and we'll take a picture of you in your cosplay and share it on the Paizo blog! After Gen Con, we'll collect all of our photos and put them to the test by opening up voting to our fans, where they will select a first place winner and two runner-ups! The first place winner will receive $75 in store credit, and two runner ups will receive $50, which they can use on such new goodies like Occult Adventures and Hell Unleashed, or save up for upcoming releases like "In Hell's Bright Shadow" and Bestiary 5!
See you in Indianapolis!
