Welcome to Cosplay and Costumes. We're glad you're looking at us. This is a group for artists, and art fans, who have an interest or passion for cosplay, costumes, and performers in costume.
My goal for this group is to have a friendly and diverse group. All are welcome, from beginning costumers to professional seamstresses. I encourage models of all shapes and sizes, and artists who might be just getting started to established pro's.
I want a friendly atmosphere. Constructive advice is fine, but please don't just rip artists and models for the sake of tearing them down.
Here are the guidelines:
- All Deviant Art rules apply. That includes, but is not limited to; you own any copyrights to the pictures you post here, have any model releases needed, and adhere to the pornography guidelines.
- Respect all artists and models.
- Please submit your better, completed works. No works in progress, no drawings on lined paper, no horribly out of focus pictures.
- Submissions will be limited to 2 per day per gallery.
- Please submit to the most appropriate gallery:
-- Featured: PLEASE, do not submit to this gallery. This gallery will be reserved for the best art submitted to the group. They will be chosen by the admins of the group. Currently, me, but may be expanded in the future. Any art submitted to the group will be rejected. Thank you for your understanding.
-- Characters: This folder is for characters. They can be from literature, history, or original. They can be single characters or a grouping. This is not a folder for obvious con pictures.
-- Scenes: This folder is for pictures of cosplay in appropriate scenes. The scenes can be real life or photo manipulated.
-- Con Pictures: Some of the best costumes and cosplay takes place at conventions. This folder is for those pictures that are taken at those conventions. There will likely be other con-goers, booths, and the like in the background. Please be sure you have the rights to the not only the picture, but the model release, too.
-- Erotic Cosplay: This is for costumes and cosplay of a more sexual, or erotic nature. Please abide by Deviant Arts pornography guidelines.
-- Traditional Art: Art of a more "traditional" nature. Costumes or characters should be the main theme.
-- Performers: This folder is for celebrating performers where costumes are an integral part of their performance or setting. Renaissance festivals, chorus lines, and plays would be examples.
-- Special Occasion: This is for your Halloween pics, masquerade balls, holidays, and the like. Maybe just random costumes for the sake of costumes.
-- Props, Accessories, and Clothing: Props, accessories, clothing, anything that is not a full, donned costume.
