JUDGES & JUDGING CRITERIA
«Geeky» is anything related to Pop Culture...comics, movies, TV shows, video games, etc. Basic fantasy, such as dragons and elves, does not constitute 'geeky' unless they are actual characters from one of the genres listed above.
Panel of judges will consist of several of the Bold City Cosplay team, photographers, and artists.
Contestants will be judged on a point scale based on the following 3 criteria:
● Artwork — Are the lines shaky? Does the color bleed? Is it correctly proportioned?
● Likeness/Detail – How close does the artwork resemble the character it’s meant to be/detail
● Placement – How much of the body does the tattoo cover?
Contestants will be required to attend pre-judging between the hours of 12PM, Friday & 4PM, Saturday at the Bold City Cosplay booth. Be sure to arrive early to check-in. Each contestant will be given a maximum of TWO MINUTES with the judges. At this time, you will be judged on your craftsmanship and character likeness.
Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners as well as Facebook Favorite!
