Two GenCons ago, Plaid Hat Games had its first cosplayer, a memorable Sera Eldwyn of Summoner Wars!

Last year, Jerry famously offered fifty bucks to someone who would do a Plaid Hat cosplay at GenCon 2014. There were many takers and the results were awesome.

This year, we're taking it to the next level, with the first Plaid Hat Games GenCon Cosplay Contest... and the best part is, you can win even if you can't go to GenCon!

The assignment: Cosplay (create and wear a costume) for a Mice and Mystics or Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn character during the week of GenCon (July 27-August 2). Take a photo. That week, we'll open the official contest where you'll be able to submit your cosplay photo. The deadline will be Monday, August 3.

You can enter a photo whether or not you were able to physically appear at GenCon. For those who are at GenCon, stop by the booth with your Mice and Mystics or Ashes cosplay and get $10 off your purchase!

The following week, August 4-10, we'll have the photos available for voting online, and multiple prizes worth up to $100 will be available! (More details forthcoming.)

Get started on your cosplay! Some people are already working hard on their costumes (see below)! Can't wait to see them!
