2. Everybody can join in. Just make sure you had ever done Bleach cosplay, because your Bleach cosplay photos will be needed while applying for joining in the contest.
3. After receiving your application form, we will make an article for each participant at our blog. And that blog is definitely the place where people can vote for you, via Like on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.
4. Participants, who get the highest polls, will be winners. You can obtain extra votes if being willing to take a photo with the placard we make for popularizing the contest. Also, you can post some articles about the contest on your social networks or personal blogs you have, letting more people know our contest. Extra 10 votes will be given to your photo and extra 1 vote will be given to each article you post. But since some participants may not have these sites and we do want to make the contest fair to everybody, extra 15 votes will be given to each participant at most. And we will check the articles you post. If the article was published on a newly registered site, it won’t be effective. And different articles on the same site will be given only 1 vote.
5. The number of winners is decided by YOU!!! There will be 1 winner if less than 10 people join in the contest. We will add 1 winner number once every 10 more people join in. That is to say, there will be 2 winners if 11-20 people join in, 3 winners if 21-30 people join in, etc.

1. The more early you join, the more likely you will win out. Since we will make an article for you within 1 working day after receiving your application form, you tend to get more polls if getting your article published more early.
2. Mobilize your friends to vote for you. The voting system is open to everybody, once you have a Facebook, Twitter or Google account. So, the more people you can ask to vote for you, the more likely you will win out. But certainly, many cosplay devotees will be willing to vote for you as long as your cosplay pictures seem great! We have ever made an article about tips to win the contest, click here to see details.
3. Get Bonus from us. As the organizer, we won’t vote for any participant. But we do offer extra votes for all contestants. As long as you can take a photo with this placard carried, we will add extra 10 votes for you. We show you an example here:
Or, it’s easy to post an article on your Facebook, Twitter, Deviantart, Cosplay.com or any other social network. Once your article is related to the contest and it’s better to cover a hyperlink to the contest in the article, we will give you extra 1 vote. This kind of votes can be accumulated. But 5 votes will be given to each of you at most. This aims to make the contest fair because some participants don’t have many sites at all.
