Guest Post: Steff von Schweetz’s Why You Lost The Costume Contest

Instead of reiterating everything here, I’ll just say that this piece is something everyone who competes in the cosplay community NEEDS to read.

“While people have different motives to enter a costume contest/masquerade at a convention, one thing is for sure: it sucks to lose.

You may often wonder why you lost. You may be quick to blame others in your group. You might think the judges are biased or weren’t skilled enough to properly judge you. You might feel you got shafted because first place doesn’t look that special. But as someone who has ten years of judging and competing experience, I’m going to bring some hard truth and say that it’s probably your own fault that you lost. Let’s look at this critically.”

To continue reading Steff von Schweetz’s piece, follow the link here. Everything in this article is hands-down correct, from both a competitor’s and judge’s standpoint. It’s a great reality check and learning tool for anyone in the competition side of the community! ❤
