Chinese Cosplay Magazine Cos Top

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 30, 2012, 12:14 AM

I have some news for cosplayers (and cosplay photographers, of course).
There is Chinese cosplay magazine "Cos Top", you can look on website (sorry Chinese only) Its very well-known at Southern China and have a lot of nice things inside :3
Magazine want to made spotlight for non Chinese cosplayers and publish photoshoots in each issue. If you have interest in publishing your photos in magazine, you can send me photos via e-mail (please, write "Cos Top Magazine" as topic of your email).

What kind of photos magazine need

1. Please, first send small photos as preview (around 600x800 px), magazine editors will look through photos and I will contact you back, if your photos will be chosen.  After that I will ask you for the big resolution photos (best is not smaller than 2574x3875 , small photos is bad for printing as you know.) So, please dont send photos that you dont have in a big resolution.
2. It must be COSPLAY photo, not original creation. No offensive, pornographic, unlawful, threatening, menacing, abusive, harmful content.
3. Please write names of anime/game/manga etc and characters in your e-mail. Name of cosplayers, photographer, MUA, seamstress (everyone who you want to credit) and which country are you from.
After publishing magazine will be sent to you.

Few words about magazine

Just to made you know what kind of magazine is it.
There are already 22 issue are published. This is only covers of last few :3

There are a lot of nice photos. A LOT. Biggest part is Chinese cosplay.

You can find interview with world-known cosplayers. As example this one about Kaname (Chinese, of course…)

And posters ( :iconyuegene: )

Some useful info about creating cosplay stuff and make up.

And, of course, photos of foreign cosplayers.



Have questions – feel free to ask in comments.
And if  you are interested don't be shy to send photos ^^

This is such a lovely magazine, what's the actual cost for an issue?
kirawinter Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Around 28 RMB (5,5 USD), but I think send it from China will be more expensive than magazine itself.

So they are accepting foreign photos all year around now?
I would like to send some picutres of my cosplays when I can. :D
