Adventurers! Ready your best fabrics, your sewing machine, your choicest jewelry, and create your finest costume for the first-ever gamigo #Cosplay Contest, beginning today! ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained are part of the contest, so take full advantage of the lockdown and social distancing during these troubled times to let your creativity express itself freely!
Are you up for the challenge?
It’s a long but oh so creative and exciting journey that awaits you! To be on your way to victory – and who knows, maybe the grand prize? – we want to be kept updated on every step of your cosplay creation process!
Indeed, you will not only be judged by the final result of your cosplay – however beautiful it may be – but by all the stages of your work. You will have to show us several steps of your creative process, whether via video, pictures, social media posts, or even an article on your blog! We want to know everything and encourage you along the way.
When sharing your weekly updates and final cosplay product, ensure you use the hashtags #cosplay and #ArcheAge/#AAUnchained on Instagram, Twitter, or YouTube. For Facebook add the mentioned hashtags and submit your progress here.
