Ragnarok Online & Ragnarok RE:START

Low Budget Cosplay Contest

October 12 - November 4, 11:59PM PST

Open to all Ragnarok players!

 

It's a cosplay contest unlike any other! Use your creativity to show us how YOU would construct a Ragnarok cosplay on a budget!

The inspiration for this contest comes from none other than the legendary Low Cost Cosplayer! Feel free to poke through his gallery for ideas :)

Use household (or minimally purchased) items to construct a Ragnarok-related cosplay, snap some photos of you doing it, and share it here for the chance to win some prizes!

All of the following are fair game for cosplay dress-up:

  • Ragnarok monsters
  • Ragnarok class characters and NPCs
  • Ragnarok items and costumes

The inspiration for this contest comes from the Low Cost Cosplayer! Open the spoiler below for examples of his work!

Please note that your entry MUST be photographed! Conceptual drawings or heavily Photoshopped entries will not qualify. Please read the rules below for more details!

In your entry, please include the following information:

 

IGN (In-Game Character Name):

Server: 

Chosen Participation Prize: (see below for details)

 

LowBudget-Rules.jpg

 

  • Only one entry per user! Please do not submit multiple entries, including across alternate accounts. Multiple entries made using alternate accounts will be disqualified.
  • Make sure YOU made it! All entries must be made by the submitter specifically for the purposes of this contest. Work previously submitted to any other contest will not be accepted. Commissioned works will not be accepted.
  • Keep digital edits to a minimum. Most of your entry must within the photo, cobbled together from found or cheap objects. If you want to digitally alter it, for example for adding effects, that's fine, but it cannot be largely Photoshopped or drawn over. Such entries will not qualify, and we will ask you to redo them.
  • All entries must be rated PG-13. Excessive violence, strong language, or NSFW content will not be permitted.
  • Must be iRO related! Content of all entries must be related to international Ragnarok Online and its contents. If it is not recognizable as iRO-related, it may be removed.
  • Follow the forum rules. Please follow the rest of the general forum rules when participating in this contest - no inappropriate content, no bullying, flamebaiting, abuse, etc. Any entries containing these unsavory elements will be immediately disqualified.
  • Make sure your work is able to be seen. All entries must be able to be accessed publicly to be considered for the contest. Imgur is a good host for images and YouTube is a good host for videos, you may use any of your choice as long as the image shows up.
  • No reserving spots. "Reserve" posts will be removed by VMods and staff. Please do not reserve posts, just post when you are ready.
  • Expectation of effort. Although this is a low budget contest, it is not a low effort contest. A certain level of effort is expected of these entries. Any entry that is deemed to be of low effort or done solely to gain a prize will be removed, and the submitter will be notified of this and given the chance to try again. Excessive instances of this will be considered spam and the submitter will not be allowed to submit again.

The rules may be changed at any point in time as potential issues arise. If you have any concerns, please PM me with the issue

5 winning entries will be chosen from all qualifying participating entries.

The Ragnarok staff will judge all entries based largely on creativity, ingenuity, and originality in order to find the top 5.

 

All qualifying participants may receive one of the following Creative Convention Hats:

 

  • Creative Convention Chapeau (Blue): AGI +1, upper headgear, not a costume
  • Classic Creative Cap (Red): INT+1, MDEF+3, upper headgear, not a costume
  • Creative Convention Hat (Green): INT+1, DEX+1, upper costume
  • Creative Convention Cap (Yellow): LUK+1, upper headgear, not a costume
Spoiler

 

In your entry, please specify which on you want by referring to the hat by its color.

 

The 5 winners will receive the following Grand Prize:

  • The winner's title of [Frugal Fashionista]
  • One of the following costumes:
    • Costume Gothic Headdress
    • Costume Smokie Knit Cap
Spoiler

 

 

Best of luck everyone!

Hello,
 
I see a recurring question here that if it's a requirement for a participant to take self photo with the entry or not and concerns of privacy.
Going through the first post thoroughly, I believe it is not a requirement. The one mentioned in the OP (Facebook link) is for reference purposes only. Being said, if you are perfectly and genuinely comfortable sharing a full/half self photo then go ahead but it is not a requirement. 
 

Please note that your entry MUST be photographed! Conceptual drawings or heavily Photoshopped entries will not qualify. Please read the rules below for more details!


Keep digital edits to a minimum. Most of your entry must within the photo, cobbled together from found or cheap objects. If you want to digitally alter it, for example for adding effects, that's fine, but it cannot be largely Photoshopped or drawn over. Such entries will not qualify, and we will ask you to redo them.


From my understanding, the main purpose of the event is to showcase how far players can be creative with the tools/items they have around them in house to construct an RO related cosplay! The Low Cost Cosplayer! on Facebook is a perfect example. So users wishing to participate; make sure to document the process and the final product in photos :)

 

And that's how I see it. Hopefully next week Astra can verify this better.

Entry Name: Sad Bedsheet (~ 'o' )~

Description: This is what happens when you don't wash your bedsheet: They become spoopy. (~ 'o' )~
So I used paper cutouts for the face, and placed a very soft pillow on my head so

that it can make that ghost-y shape thing on the top =D I hope it's a valid entry > -<
I also put up a bit of filter, for more spoops

Hello everyone, I'm aware that some folks are hesitant to join this contest because they do not want to share photos of themselves online. A valid concern! If this is a concern of yours, you may dress up a pet or a friend, just specify in your post that it is them. You may also take measures to obscure any defining features of yourself in the photo, such as blurring/pixellating your face or putting a sticker over it. We don't want anybody feeling unsafe in this contest, so do what you feel comfortable with! :)

 

Here are some answers to more specific questions:

 

Are we allowed to dress our own pets up instead? 

Yes! You may do that!

 

 

Does it have to be a full-body picture or are close-ups allowed too?

Close-ups are allowed.

 

 

I dont feel like showing my lowly self in the forums, cani ask a friend to cosplay for me? Lmfao

Yes you may, just state that your friend is modeling for you.

I don't really understand how anyone could feel unsafe. Insecure maybe but anyone that makes fun of the way someone looks should be banned anyway.

Good new Astra. I know some people can feel uncomfortable to show their picture because they can be too good looking (some natural, some photoshopped) and that can get jealous people to harass them. They can also be kind-hearted and feel bad for making other people jealous.

Now though with a new rule to allow to dress up a pet. Hopefully no one will use the same monsters. Abysmal Knight anyone? Hahaha
