Nerd Night @ Ruby's: Time Traveling Duos

This is your chance to hone your craft in a new way, to explore new materials, and to figure out how to overcome new problems! Plus, this time you don't just get to show off your cosplay talents, but your physical ones as well! This contest will be held in the pool area, and if you're cosplaying you will have to get in the water!

Costume Selection: We value creativity in solving the swimwear dilemma, so you do not have to perfectly re-create a costume. Costumes must be actual functional swimwear, whether it's from a real swimsuit seen in the series, a modification of an existing outfit, or the type of swimsuit that character would have worn, had they been featured in one.

Incidentally, the swimsuit must also be a costume of sorts. If you're character wears a really generic looking swimsuit and you just buy one at the store, make sure to have the appropriate hair, makeup/marking, jewelry, and maybe some prop to help identify your cosplay.

Costumes must be swimable! Take this into account when choosing both your character and your fabric. If you gain 30lbs when wet, you've chosen poorly.

Costumes must be water safe as well! Don't use anything that will break apart and cause a mess in the pool or an embarrassing moment for yourself. If you're leaving bits of rice paper behind in the pool, you're doing it wrong and we hate you. >:( This is largely part of our "don't break the hotel" policy.

Costumes must be appropriate for the hotel pool. So yes, you can show a lot of skin, but make sure that at the very least your genitalia are covered!

For any questions about swimsuit cosplay, inquire on the forums, or to cosplay@animepunch.org.
You might also want to check out THIS THREAD on the forums, as it does a more graphical and generally better job of explaining.
