Pokemon is back with the brand new Pokemon GO app! Here at EpicCosplay, we thought we’d celebrate with a Pokemon themed contest! Send us a photo of yourself in one of our wigs as a Pokemon gijinka (meaning a humanized version) and you could win a $100 EpicCosplay gift certificate and be featured on our website and flyers for a month! So what are you waiting for, trainers? Show us that you can be the very best!


Three different contest winners will be chosen. Their photos will be displayed on various promotional images for EpicCosplay Wigs for one month. In addition, their photo will be printed on at least 2,000 EpicCosplay business card flyers which are typically handed out at conventions and included in every wig purchase at our booth. The top winner will receive a $100 EpicCosplay gift certificate. The other two winners will each receive a $50 EpicCosplay gift certificate. Each winner will receive an EpicCosplay t-shirt.
