Welcome to AZ-Cosplay!

AZ-Cosplay is a group aimed at connecting cosplayers in Arizona and showcasing their work. If you live in Arizona and have a passion for cosplay, feel free to join! If you live outside of Arizona, but have attended a convention here or have ties to this state, feel free to join as well!

General Rules:

Treat fellow group members with respect (no bullying, harassing, stalking, etc.)!

Each member is only allowed to submit up to THREE submissions to the group per day.

Please make sure that you are placing your submission(s) in the correct folder. If you are uncertain which folder your submission belongs in, information about the folders can be found here:… . If you are still uncertain which folder your submission belongs in, feel free to send us a note.


How can I use AZ-Cosplay to promote a cosplay-related event?

Journal/Blog entries can be used to promote cosplay gatherings, convention information, rules, and other events that are directly related to the group, Arizona, or cosplay. Although you are free to leave comments about cosplay-related events on AZ-Cosplay's main page, the most effective way of informing group members is by writing a journal entry and submitting it directly to the group.

(Note: Please do NOT submit journal entries to the folders in the group gallery. The gallery folders will ONLY feature photo submissions. Information about cosplay gatherings, conventions, rules, etc. should be submitted by clicking on the "Journal" tab on the AZ-Cosplay homepage, clicking the "+ New Blog Entry" on the upper right-hand side, typing up any pertinent information about the event, and then submitting it for approval by the group. This way photo submissions and blog entries are kept separate.)

Why was my submission(s) to AZ-Cosplay declined?

Your submission(s) may have been declined for one of the following reasons:
1.) You do not reside in Arizona and have no ties to the state whatsoever.
2.) Your submission contains gratuitous sex, violence, etc.
3.) You have submitted too many images from the same photoshoot. Please remember to submit photos in moderation. If you have quite a few photos of your cosplay that were taken at similar locations on the same day, please choose your favorite images (preferably 1-3) to submit to the group. Showcase your favorite images from that photoshoot--and our members will be able to view the others in your personal gallery.
4.) You may have submitted to the incorrect folder. We ask that you resubmit to the correct folder in the group gallery.

If you feel that your submission followed all of these rules and was unfairly declined, send us a note.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please send us a note and we will try to get back to you as quickly as possible. :)
