2012 Suupaa Kaizoku Cosplay Contest

Well, the year is winding down, and SK Cosplay is out of conventions for the rest of the year. But that doesn’t mean we’re done just yet. We’ve had an amazing experience so far, and we’re very thankful for those who have helped us. So now, we have reached over 350 likes on Facebook! That’s amazing since it felt like it was just yesterday that we barely passed 300. So as a show of thanks, we’re having a cosplay contest in a way that only we know how.

As you may know, we get the “Suupaa” in our name from Franky’s trademark catchphrase in One Piece. So the winner of the cosplay contest will of course get a brand new Grandline Men Franky along with a set of 4 Yu-Gi-Oh! cards that are a part of Viz Media’s Shonen Jump Alpha promotion. Rules to enter are really simple:

• Post a photo of yourself in any type of One Piece cosplay, from either a convention or photoshoot to our Facebook wall:

• Include your name (if different from your Facebook name), character name that you are cosplaying, year the photo was taken, and location of the photo

• Only submit photos of yourself. If you only have a group photo, indicate which of the group you are (especially if there are duplicate characters in the photo i.e. Luffy Group shot)

• Photos must be submitted BEFORE December 25, 2012 to qualify

• SK Cosplay will then select a group of finalists, from which the winner will be decided by fans via “Likes”

• No more than THREE (3) entries per person/account.

• Anyone caught cheating will be disqualified. This contest is run just for fun, so let’s have fun

Happy Holidays everyone! Submit those photos soon, and good luck to everyone. STAY SUUPAA!!!

We’ve got your normal dose of con review, masquerade thoughts, and cosplay photos, but we also get some new experiences like the Fashion Show, Iron Cosplay, and Dante Bosco’s panel. You might’ve heard of him (*cough*Rufio & voice of Zuko*cough*). Join Dennis, Kate, and Aaron as we go over our final convention of the year. Episode 28 is a go!
