Rainbow Six Siege Announces Low Budget Cosplay Contest
Alongside the video game industry boom, cosplay has evolved big time. It’s come to the point that hobbyists are hired professionally to represent their brand or image, and that’s as good as any past time obsession can get. This time around, it’s for the everyday gamer with a little time on their hand. Ubisoft announced a low-budget cosplay contest for the Rainbow Six Siege community and there are awesome prizes waiting at the end.
The contest will be judged on three criteria – creativity, originality, and “adherence to the spirit of low-budget.” In other words, if you’re trying to get fancy with it, this isn’t the cosplay competition you’re looking for. “Whether it’s cardboard LMGs, soapy Cav war paint, or Headgear made out of watermelons, it’s time to show off your creative side with the Rainbow Six Siege Low-Budget Cosplay Contest,” Ubisoft states on their official blog. “So give us your best, your most out-of-the-box, and your most inspired Rainbow Six Siege cosplays.”
The contest runs from October 5th to October 25th, 2018. There will be ten winners chosen from the pool of participants with a grand prize winner, a second grand prize, third place, and seven finalists. Though the end-game achievements aren’t tangible in nature, this low budget competition is fantastic for Rainbow Six Siege players looking for a fun way to earn some in-game credits. The first place loot has an estimated retail value of $100 (USD). Not bad! The list of prizes are as follows:
