ATTN: YOUR PHOTOS ARE BEING REMOVEDHello everyone,
Just a reminder that if you submit to the wrong folder (and our contributors didn't catch it in the voting process) I will remove your photo from the group.
People have been taking advantage of the 'Cosplay Tutorials' 1 vote rule and have been submitting their non-tutorial photos to the folder.
I do no move photos from folders, I just remove them.
We spend a lot of time and energy trying to make this group great for you guys.
All we ask is that you submit to the correct folders please.
Thank you for understanding everyone
Introducing: Cosplay Tutorials Folder!Well, not a single person said no!
So, we opened a Cosplay Tutorials folder!
This works a bit differently then all the other folders.
In addition to the 1 deviation you can submit a week, you can also submit 1 Cosplay Tutorial deviation!
Tutorials are to help people out, so why count it as your once a week?
We didn't think it made sense either!
Hope you all utilize it Remember to read the rules before submitting, and PLEASE submit to the correct folders so you don't have to wait another week to submit a photo!
Live, Laugh, Cosplay!
Tutorials Section?I've been playing around with the idea of having a tutorials folder.
Would anyone utilize it if I did?
(we aren't a super group so I can't just post a poll, sorry! You guys can be super lazy and just say Y or N. I just want to see what the majority thinks )
Happy Cosplaying and Holidays!
FAQI have noticed lately quite a few people have been posting asking "why was my submission declined and this other one accepted?" or "why does this keep expiring?".
Please keep in mind we have dozens of contributors with varying opinions.
If you feel your photo should have been accepted when it wasn't, try submitting it again next week.
We also get hundreds of submissions a week, and as much as we'd love to get through all of them, sometimes other engagements keep us from it.
I just ask you please be patient with all of us, we're trying our best to keep a group everyone can enjoy!
THEY'RE AT IT AGAIN, Stupid ScammersOf course they're back!
And now they have a new trick.
I just want to stress everyone to BE CAREFUL.
If anyone, and I mean anyone is messaging you asking for nudes, do not send them.
It doesn't matter how they word it, it is still the same scam everyone.
Don't be fooled by nice words like "movie" and "model".
If you receive one of these messages, I urge you to report the account as soon as possible!
Your bodies are precious!
COSPLAY SCAMMERS ON THE LOOSE! BEWARE LADIES!It has come to my attention that there are some weirdos on the loose (and I don't mean the good kind).
I'll quote what I read from Not Bad Cosplay (http://notbadcosplay.tumblr.com/post/38288553380/not-desu-enough-the-fake-cosplay-com-interviews) on Tumblr:
"For those of you who don’t know, a group has been going around scamming female cosplayers by pretending to be cosplay.com, asking to do interviews over skype. In the interviews at the end cosplayers were given a quiz on their character where if the females answered questions wrong they had to remove 1 article of clothing."
Now, I could write paragraphs of how enraged and disgusted this makes me, but I think she words it best.
(PLEASE, ESPECIALLY if you are a girl, take the time to read the rest of the article from Tumblr http://notbadcosplay.tumblr.com/post/38288553380/not-desu-enough-the-fake-cosplay-com-interviews)
I was approached by one of these people about an interview yesterday, not knowing about this scam.
OVER 10K MEMBERS?!I haven't even been looking at the member count, but we're just a few hundred over 10,000 members now...WOW!
When we made this group I had no idea it would become so popular!
So, a HUUUUGE thank you to everyone who has joined and/or contributed to our lovely gallery of wonderful cosplayers and photographers alike
You're all amazing and deserve credit for making this group what it is now.
Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday (and make sure to be careful on the 21st! I'm betting on an alien invasion... >_>b )
Do any of you have a special holiday wish?
We'd love for you to share it!
Thank you again everyone for all that you do!
Happy Cosplayer Appreciation Day!It was brought to my attention earlier that today was declared Cosplayer Appreciation Day!
In celebration of every cosplayer out there, pat yourselves on the back!
What got you into cosplay?
Do you have a favourite story of a cosplayer you know?
Introducing the "Props" folder!So, after having this group for 2 years, we've finally made one.
Venegal proposed the idea to make an actual folder for them, and since I've noticed so many people wanting to submit props... here we are!
Keep in mind that progress photos will still NOT being accepted! We ask that the prop photos you submit are of FINISHED props! and PLEASE submit them to the 'Props' folder!!
Enjoy everyone, can't wait to see them props!!
(props, props, props, props, props... think I said it enough times? It's starting to sound funny)

You and IArtwork by agnes-cecile
I figured it out from black and white.
Seconds and hours.
Maybe they had to take some time.
I know how it goes from wrong and right.
Silence and sound.
Did they ever hold each other tight
Did they ever fight
We can make it 'til the end.
Nothing can come between
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us.
I figured it out.
Saw the mistakes of up and down.
Meet in the middle.
There's always room for common ground.
I see what it's like for day and night.
this thing called art is really dangerous by agnes-cecile
'Cause they see things in a different light
But they never tried

Mary Cassatt"In art, what we want is the certainty that one spark of original genius shall not be extinguished."
Portrait of the Artist c. 1878
Mary Cassatt was born in Allegheny City (now part of Pittsburgh), Pennslyvania, USA on May 23, 1844. Her family was upper-middle-class, giving Mary the ability to travel Europe and later attend art school. Her schooling at the Pennslyvania Academy of Fine Arts lead her to believe one of the best ways she could learn was to copy the old masters.
The Mandolin Player c. 1872
In 1866, Mary finally got the opportunity to study abroad, but even then the prestigious Ecole des Beaux-Arts would not accept female students. Cassatt was also let down by the Salon and the conservatism of the Paris art world in general. After spending time studying and refining her techniques throughout the rest of Europe, Cassatt returned to Paris once aga

CosPod is the podcast about all things cosplay. We cover everything from fantasy to sci-fi, from steampunk to mascots, from anime to SCA, and everything in between. Our podcast discusses the materials, techniques, people and places of cosplay.
