This is day three of my 1 week cosplay Facebook challenge!
Post that second brand new photo, and let’s get it featured somewhere! A great way to bring in new viewers is to get featured on another Facebook page or website. Here are some ways to achieve that:
- Submit a photo to Super Cosplay Gallery via their Facebook group (make sure to read the rules!)
- Reach out via private message to some Facebook pages that feature cosplay photos. Make sure to check if they have submission rules first! You could try Men vs. Cosplay or Women vs. Cosplay, The ART of COSPLAY, and Up & Coming Cosplay. Do some research to find more!
- Email websites that feature cosplay (such as Fashionably Geek, Nerdist, or Geeks are Sexy) with a short blurb about your costume, credits, and a high res photo (or a few of the same costume). Dedicate a little time to googling similar features (searching “amazing ____ cosplay” will often turn up feature articles) so you have a good number of websites — like 10-12 — to submit to. You will not hear back from the majority of them, so go for quantity.
You may not hear back from all of these venues immediately, but don’t worry, the hard work you’re putting in today will probably pay off soon, and if it doesn’t, keep trying! They might not like what you submit today, but that doesn’t mean they won’t like your next costume.
