Cosplay Competition

Postby xXNarutoSasukeXx » January 23rd, 2013, 6:11 pm

Hello
I just wanted to know whether for the competition where you have to do an act, do you provide microphones or do you want a CD to play over head with our voices? Because we have to know whether we have to make overhead voices or not. So do you provide Mics? :D

I took the liberty of deleting your double post :)

For the cosplay competitions we provide microphones (both wireless and clip-on if I'm correct). For more information about the different cosplay competitions please check:

or feel free to ask further questions here or true the webform!

Just a little tip from a tech guy here, prerecording your own voices and playbacking has proven to give the best results in the past.
Not everyone is familiar with speaking into a microphone and it takes practice to get your voice level and the distance between microphone and mouth right. Especially during an act (when you also need to remember your moves) this results in cosplayers not being very audible in the audience, although the sound guys can crank up and down the audio a little on the fly. When you pre-record, you can test for yourself if it is easily audible and get the exact transitions between voice and BGM.

As indicated, you're free to ask for a mike, but this is just what I've noticed during past competitions.
