I.    Eligibility
  • Anyone who cosplays is a qualified participant, subject to online pre-screening.
  • By registering to the cosplay contest, participants agree to allow MSI to use their images for promotional purposes, both photographs and video.
II.   General Information
  • Costume and/or skit content should not go beyond “PG-13”.
  • Offensive language of any kind is not allowed — no racial or sexual epithets; no profanity, etc.
  • No excessive violence.
  • No nudity.
  • No yaoi, yuri, or hentai.
  • Be clever, not crass! If you think your costume or presentation might be too risqué or offensive, it probably is.
  • No fire, flame, smoke, fog, dry ice, wind machines, lasers, pressurized gases or liquids.
  • No messy substances—wet, dry, or oily—at the backstage or onstage.
  • No jumping on or off stage—please use the officially designated stage entrances and exits.
  • All weapons must be peace-bonded and approved. Pointing weapons at anyone will NOT be tolerated.
  • Contestants are not allowed to use their stage time to make political, religious, insulting, or other demonstrations not related to their entry.
  • All decisions made by the organizers are final.
III.   Criteria for Judging

 Judging will be based on “Presentation” and “Workmanship”.
  • All participants will be given a 2-minute presentation time — either a walk-on or a traditional skit.
  • Each contestant will appear in only one stage performance.
  • While we appreciate costumes from other genres, MSI will prefer those costumes of gaming characters from Avatar Star and Dragon Nest. If your costume originates from any other genres, it may still qualify under the “Costrip Special Category”.
 Presentations will be judged based on the performance of the cosplayer.

Types of presentations:
  • Regular skit – Traditional skits in which the main activities include a character acting out a scene. Duration may be up to two (2) minutes.
  • Walk-on – quick presentation consisting of a few poses intended to show off a costume. Duration may be up to 40 seconds.
  • Pre-recorded music and dialogue are preferred and strongly encouraged, but not required.
  • Do not submit valuable original CDs. Bring backup copies of your audio to ensure it’s not lost. MSI is not responsible for damage to or loss of CDs or any other media, so please ONLY use “disposable” rewritable CDs rather than more valuable items.
  • Include the name of your contact person and entry name in the filename.
  • Clearly label CD with your name and skit title.
  • One track on CD is preferred; we cannot change tracks or start in the middle of a track.
  • We cannot play or rip music off portable MP3 players, such as iPods or cell phones.
  • Leave the stage as clean as it was when you set foot on it. Arrange to remove all items you brought on stage at the end of your presentation.
  • Don’t plan for complex lighting. The default lighting cue is: lights go up, music starts, you come on at stage right, you leave on stage left, music stops, lights go down.
 Costume Workmanship criteria are based on the following factors:


Overall Construction:
  • Use of materials, construction methods and durability.
  1. Representation of your costume to the character design.
  2. Skill in scale and body fit adaptation.
  3. Resemblance to character shown in documentation
  4. Use of appropriate or innovative methods and applications.
  • Extra points may be awarded at the judges’ discretion for construction done above and beyond the normal effort expected for a costume.
NOTE: Onsite cosplayers are welcome, subject to slot availability. Pre-registered cosplayers will be prioritized.
