Cosplay Skit Contest
This Skit Contest is a performance contest in front of an attendee audience with the important requirement that you be in cosplay.
You do not need to make your own costume but you do need to be in cosplay. You are required to perform a short skit, monologue, song, dance, or anything else entertaining! You need to pre-register, there is no day-of registration as we do not have time. You need to provide your music/audio as a file, MP3 is our format of choice.
You can be a single entry or a group, either way there is only one prize per entry. Anyone competing in the C4 qualifiers competition is not eligible to enter the skit contest.
Time limits for entries will be as follows: Every entry will be given a base time limit of 2 minutes. Every person beyond the first member will be given an additional 30 seconds. For example, a group of 3 people would receive a time limit of 3 minutes (2 minutes + 2 x 30 seconds). If you require an extension to your time limit, please contact the Cosplay Coordinators at email@example.com.
All performers who will appear on stage must be registered as part of your group. No member of the audience nor person who is not registered will be allowed on stage during the contest. Personal recording devices are not allowed on stage. You may have a friend come up to the photography area in front of the stage to record your performance if you’d like. Alternately, Otafest will be recording the entirety of the contest and the footage will be posted for public viewing at a later date.
All audio that is to be used during the competition must be submitted via the registration form or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to May 1st 2019. No day of audio will be accepted.
We will meet 30 minutes before the posted show time in order to confirm entrant, set up, and get everyone in performance order. Similar to the traditional Cosplay contest, entrants will line up off stage in performance order and wait their turn. You will be called up to perform in front of the audience and our judges and then you will leave the stage and the next entrant will perform. Seating will be provided at the front of the room for you to watch the rest of the show. Once all entrants have performed our judges will leave the room to deliberate. Our judges will then return to the room and present the awards right away.
Registration, retails, categories, and prize info will be released in 2019!
