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.
Just a friendly reminder that on January 1, 2017 ticket prices for Project Cosplay 2017 will increase.
December is your last chance to get tickets for just $35 or VIP for $75. Don’t miss out on this discounted opportunity.
Also don’t forget that the Friday Dinner Workshop Tickets are still available for just $20. That’s right, get a full Italian feast along with a fun panel and demonstration featuring Michael “Knightmage” Wilson.
A home security system is one purchase that is often well worth the cost. After all, this product will not only help protect you from break-ins (and potentially other issues, depending on the product you buy), but the system also provides confidence. That is something on which you can’t put a price. However, before you purchase a system or sign a contract, it is important to understand more about the companies you’re choosing from. That’s where Denver Home Security Judge comes in.
Denver Home Security Judge has a professional blog that provides advice on not just home security systems, but home security in general. Even better, Denver Home Security Judge has spent countless hours researching over 100 home security companies, and posted their top 3 home security company picks in Denver on their home page.
If you are a follower of Project-Nerd, then you read this weekend that the Denver based geek blog will no longer be providing online entertainment after Saturday, September 3rd. This is important because Project Cosplay is organized by EEON, LLC, the same parent company for Project-Nerd.
This announcement has generated some questions on how it impacts things such as Project Cosplay.
The change with the Project-Nerd website will not impact Project Cosplay, as the show will continue in February as planned.
Although the Project-Nerd website will not continue through September, EEON, LLC will remain in business and will continue to operate Project Cosplay, Project-Nerd Publishing, the EEON Podcast Network, as well as other business ventures, both new and existing.
Featured shoots for Project-Nerd that were a part of Project Cosplay in year one will not be present this year, however EEON has standing relationships with numerous website and brands and will work to ensure maximum exposure on the web of the exciting galleries captured at the event.
If you have concerns or questions, please feel free to reach out to the Project Cosplay team. Otherwise, we can’t wait to see you all in February!
