The Theatre Arts & Dance Department of Red Rocks Community College is Colorado’s most comprehensive two-year theatre training program, offering a great education at an affordable rate.

The department’s mission is to provide students with expert hands-on training paired with in-depth scholarly study. The Theatre Arts and Dance Department achieves this through courses offered in multiple areas of performing arts, award-winning productions, and job-skill training opportunities for students who are interested in personal enrichment or pursuing a professional career in theatre.

The program offers certificates in Costume Basics, Costume Applications, Costume and Fashion as well as an Associate of Applied Science in Theatre Technology Degree with an emphasis in Stage Costuming.

Red Rocks Community College Theatre Arts and Dance Department will be sponsoring the provided suite that will allow for additional shoots and a changing area to take place. Without their support, those not staying at the hotel would have to change costumes in the bathroom as well as certain highly artistic photo sessions would not take place.

If enough interest is generated, Chaos Collectibles will help host tournaments or one-off challenges.

Chaos Collectibles offers some of the coolest and rarest geeky collectibles and will feature a full booth in the gaming room. Attendees are encouraged to shop and support the brand that will also be hosting the activities in the Gaming Lounge throughout the weekend.

Photographer Applications Closed

At this time, Project Cosplay has closed the 2017 photographer application and will not announce any new photographers if no cancellations are confirmed.

Header-Photographers

There was an overwhelming interest in photography for Project Cosplay 2017, and to keep a decent photographer to cosplayer ratio, a select amount of individuals had to be turned away.

The decision on who to add was not determined on quality alone. Turnaround time, quantity, willingness to shoot for free, eagerness to share content through multiple outlets, and an interest in the community all played factors. Additionally, many applications were not completed in full, leaving desired answers and links unaccessible for many.

The eleven photographers will be joined by a small group of cosplayers also acting as amateur photographers through Hidden Vision Photography’s Photographer Workshop. These cosplayers/photographers will not interfere with the main selected group but will have opportunities to act as apprentices and shoot galleries as part of a learning experience with Hidden Vision.

Additional photographers that already applied can choose to stay on a wait list and join if an accepted photographer drops out.

Notes: The photographer workshop was announced in the Project Cosplay Public Group as well as the application for photography was made available from June 2016 through December 2016. For queries or feedback, please direct all communication to info(at)project-nerd.com.

Create Your Own Character Contest

Project Cosplay and Project-Nerd Publishing present the Create Your Own Character Contest.

create-character

Participants are encouraged to create a custom character (non-existing) that would be part of a new fictional universe created by Project-Nerd Publishing and the Initiative Production Group where random people across the world are gaining super powers with no explanation.

Participants will have as much time necessary prior to the event to create their own character, costume, powers, and origin. All participants then will wear the costume and present it to a to-be-named panelist of judges that will include Project-Nerd Publishing leadership and costume experts on Saturday, February 4th at 5:00 PM.

The character that participants create should be completely original and not associated with or designed after any existing superheroes from any current publication. The costume would need to be a complete design with the participant explaining the origin of the character, along with their superpowers, and how the costume lends to their new found abilities.

The winner will be rewarded with a published web comic (or more) of the character created by Project-Nerd Publishing, VIP Admission to Project Cosplay 2018, a $50 Cash Prize, a free 3D Scan from Werks3D, and a Project-Nerd Publishing Prize Pack.

Two runner ups (if minimum participants reached) will also receive a Project-Nerd Publishing Prize Pack.

All participants will be rewarded a professional photo gallery of their new costume.
