Get creative in The Witcher Cosplay Competition!

Without a doubt, The Witcher has always had the most talented community out there. Each month you guys send us tons of great fan art, musical tracks, fanfics and stuff so amazing that we sometimes decide to hang it on the walls here in the studio. The time has come to give you a chance to create something really amazing and get rewarded for your hard work. Ladies and Gents, ready your inner seamsters and seamstresses–The Witcher Cosplay Contest is here.

The objective is simple–cosplay one of the characters from the Witcher universe and make us bow in recognition of your amazing skill and/or idea. If this is your first time cosplaying a character from a game, don’t worry–even if you think you don’t have what it takes, we might think you do. Fun comes first!
What we’ll be looking at:

– Likeness to character
– Craftsmanship
– Presentation (i.e. how you look in the costume or how your photographs present it)
– Wow factor (overall impact of the costume, i.e. how low did our jaws drop)
– Originality

Who will be looking at it:
We’ve invited professional cosplayers to help us pick the winners.
