Professional Cosplayers with a significant following and with years of experience as leaders in the cosplay community may apply to be considered to be announced and promoted as a Cosplay Guest. A cosplay table and exhibitor admission would be provided in this case. The Cosplay Guest is still expected to participate in one panel per day. This could be as a presenter in a workshop or as a judge in a contest. We consider a significant following to be interpreted via social media metrics. We are looking for people who have at least 50,000 likes or follows on a single social media platform to be considered. Because there are so many talented cosplayers who would qualify, it’s important that we clarify that we have to also consider other factors such as social media engagement, website traffic, mentions in cosplay press, and more to make a final determination on our Cosplay Guest lineup. If you have any questions, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org.
