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)
Going to Otakon? Wanna support the victims in CO?Check out this group and follow them. They're buddies of mine and will be planning a mass memorial movement at the con for anyone interested.

How to Make a Good Profile PageHow to Make a Good Profile Page
Learn some helpful tips to ensure your profile page is appealing to the masses!
written by `miontre for Community Week in %projecteducate.
Quite simply, the way you present yourself is important. People make decisions about other people based on the way they present themselves. You know this is true because you do it yourself. There is no shame in this, because it's natural human behavior: we simply do not have the time to make decisions about each and every person we encounter from scratch, so we have to make some decisions based on how they present themselves. One such judgments made in this way is how worthwhile a person is - through this, we don't learn about a personality, but rather how long we are going to hold interest in this person.
If there's one thing which makes me uninterested in a person's profile, resulting in my immediate departure, it's when there's too much junk and mess on there - a result of careless presentation. :l
