Altus Holds Cosplay Contest…In America (…also Canada)
A few days ago, in the spirit of Halloween, Atlus started to hold a contest to see who in the US and Canada can dress up as their favorite character from any of their games. The contest is called Atlus-O-Weenie 2011 and is scheduled to go on from October17th to November 11th. People interested in the contest need only to dress up as an Atlus U.S.A/Index Digital Media Inc. publised game, upload a pic of yourself along with filling out the necessary forms and be at least 18 years of age.
There are several catogories where contestants could win in, each from a different game. In other words, there can be winners for dressing up as a character from Catherine, Persona and King of Fighters, as well as a random winner that will be chosen for a prize. In addition, there is also a grand prize chosen by the fans, a $300 Amazon gift card.
