  • Popular characters from other media (eg. comic book superheroes, TV shows, movies) do not qualify, even if they are featured in their own games.
    • For example, The Amazing Spiderman video game adaptions would not qualify because the design is originally from the live-action movie which it is based on.
  • However, characters which have an original design based on their game are qualified. For example,
    • Spiderman's design from the upcoming Spiderman game for Playstation 4.
    • Batman's design from the Arkham or Injustice games.
  • Best Retro Homage: Character must be from a time period between years 1972 and 2000 in order to qualify. For example: Characters from Contra, StarCraft 1, Super Mario Bros, etc.

2. Outfits should not be overly revealing as to constitute indecent exposure and should be appropriate for a family audience. No statements containing profanity or political/religious commentary – including messages on costumes or props – will be allowed.
