For the Love of Cosplay

SolidRye Announcements, Contests, Giveaway Rules

2020 was a disappointing year for everyone.  With the cancellation of conventions, cosplayers were forced to put away their cosplays for another year.  Yet, as cosplayers, we strive for that next great cosplay! Let's forget what was lost in 2020 and have some fun with designs for the future!

Let's power through this spring with some creativity! And why not? This time there are prizes on the line!  This challenge allows you to design and dream up of a cosplay design that will fit the theme of each day.

  • Post your entry in the correct channel on our Discord with the tag #ForTheLoveOfCosplay.
  • If you like a person’s design, add a "Thumbs Up" reaction on their post in the Discord channel. 
  • Each individual who reacts to your post counts as a vote!
  • Whoever has the most votes qualifies for a chance at one of the prizes!

Check out below for full rules and F.A.Q. for entering.  If you have any questions direct them to @SuperBee or the Admin Team on Discord.
