There’s still time to submit your pictures of yourself wearing a gigantic spiky wig for our Final Fantasy cosplay gallery next week!
As we mentioned last month, we here at The Escapist have discovered that our community genuinely appreciates well-done cosplay. Given that next week’s issue of our weekly magazine focuses on the current state of JRPGs, we thought it appropriate to run a gallery of people dressed up in costumes from arguably the most famous JRPG series of all time.
That’s where you all come in.
We will be accepting submissions until 6 PM EST (GMT -5) on Monday, November 8th. If you would like to be in our Final Fantasy cosplay gallery, please send a picture (or a link to a picture) of the costume to editor (at) escapistmag (dot) com with the subject “Final Fantasy Cosplay.” If you would like to include a link to an online cosplay profile or a short comment or two about the process of making the costume – difficulties, techniques, etc. – you may do so.
Some quick rules:
*Please send in your own work. No grabbing random images off the internet and pretending they’re your own. If it isn’t an image you took yourself – or an image of you in costume – don’t send it in. If you can properly source the picture, you have a much higher chance at being chosen for our gallery.
*No huge images. If you attach an image rather than sending a link, keep the file size reasonable. Resize the image if you need, because they’re going to end up resized anyway. All images must be below 1MB in size – and if you’re going to send multiple images in one email, make sure they’re even smaller.
*You may not be selected. Depending on how many submissions we get, we may not use all of them. If you send an image in and don’t get selected, our apologies, but thank you for contributing!
*Keep it worksafe. This one should be pretty obvious. No porn, please.
We hope to see your pictures!
