My application was rejected! What can I do?

Read over the rejection message. You may also appeal the decision to the Approvals Manager via join@cosplayersguild.org. You may also do so by replying to the rejection e-mail.

How do I join The Cosplayers Guild?

You just need to submit an application!

How do I update the information I submitted in my application?

Every year during the first quarter, the Approvals Manager will be conducting a census and getting in contact with you to update your information. If you would like to update your information in the meantime, just submit another "application" and we'll use the data to update your listing in the roster. NOTE: This only works if you submit using the email address we have on record for you. If you need to update your email address, please contact the Approvals Manager directly at approvalsmanager@cosplayersguild.org

Why don't you allow minors to join The Cosplayers Guild?

In order to keep operating costs to a minimum, The Cosplayers Guild does not maintain liability insurance. Because minors are not legally responsible for themselves, any minor members of The Cosplayers Guild would become the legal liability of the Guild and its officers at any events where their parents are not present. In order to maximize our charitable efforts, we cannot undertake such a responsibility at this time.
