How to register for the Tales of Ambassador context at Japan Expo ?
First, go to this website : http://en.inscription.epic-asso.com/ and create an account! You should get your ‘please click here to confirm your account’ email very very quickly (under a few minutes), if it’s not the case please try again or email the EPIC staff. Once your account is done, log in on the website, then proceed to the “Contest” page (here ! http://en.inscription.epic-asso.com/contest/list)
Click on “Election de l’ambassadeur Tales of – Tales of Ambassador election” (third one on the list) and start preparing your registration! You can do that at anytime, so I highly suggest you to do it BEFORE 9pm. At 9:00, you must only click on ‘send!’ 😉
First, read all the rules : it’s very important.
For example : No prefabricated or commissioned costume can enter the contest. Only homemade costumes are eligible. <- very important. You can get help from your family, but you can’t buy or ask someone else to sew your cosplay for you.
Here is what you’ll need :
– For your registration to be considered complete, we’ll need
• the registration form to be duly filled out;
• a picture of the character(s) you are cosplaying
• a working audio file. (1 minute max)
Beware: the picture of the character must be from official work, and you can edit your picture so you have like 5 different pics on the same one, if you want.
Your audio file can be shorter than 1 minute, but you NEED one (no live mic allowed) and if it’s even 1 second too long, your registration will be canceled. So 1:01 audio file = NOT GOOD ! Beware !
Click on “SOLO” and start filling in :
Series: complete name of the Tales of games chosen. Example : “Tales of Graces f”
Character: name of your cosplayed character, you can either choose a complete name of short name if you want (example : “Jude Mathis” or “Jude”). I still suggest you put the full name if your character have one!
First contest ? : it’s it not something that will put you below than others (on the contrary !). If it’s your first contest, judges will take it into consideration, in the good way. Just check the box 😉 ! (Amaze us with a wonderful first cosplay, my first one was SO CRAPPY HAHA)
Personal creation ? : here it’s NOT ALLOWED so check no. If you’re cosplaying a fanart, I suggest you change, this is not allowed. Official DLC or alternate outfits are 100% OK though !!
Media of your skit : upload an MP3 here. Remember: no longer than 1:00:00 minute! The name of your audio doesn’t matter.
Reference Image : please chose a reference pic where we can CLEARLY see the costume. It helps a lot! The name of your pic doesn’t matter.
Describe your props and weapons (All of your props.) : basically, just explain everything you’ll have on stage (a doll, a basket, a table, a chair, a bagpack, anything!), and if you build a weapon explain what material you used and if you made it yourself. Be careful : if it’s too heavy and too hard, your weapon won’t be allowed into the event ! Do hesitate to ASK if this box if you weapon is ok, by descriving it as detailed as possible.
Then click “Validate” and wait for 8:59pm to be on the starting blocks to send your registration!!
If you pass the first and second round of the election you’ll have to answer to 3 questions about you & the series. I very highly suggest your prepare them before, at least in your head : you’ll have very little time to answer questions you’ll probably could speak about for half an hour. This will help you out 😛
I think that is all, if you have any question please ask in the comments below :3 I’ll answer them. And please share this post so everyone can read it !
SEE YOU AT JAPAN EXPO ON STAGE *_________*
