Anime NYC Online has opened up submissions for their Virtual Cosplay Showcase, which will be styled around the popular “Pass the Brush” challenge! The pass the brush challenge has cosplayers “pass” an item (e.g. – a brush) between each other in a continuous video.
Amenoocosplay’s Pass The Brush cosplay video (used as an example by Anime NYC Online).
For Anime NYC Online, cosplayers can submit a 15-20 second video, but instead of using a brush, they will be “passing on” the free printable badge for the online con.
Anime NYC Online’s Instructions (Source):
- “Download and print out our Online Badge”
- “Make a short video of yourself”
- “The video should be 15 to 20 seconds”
- “Take it with your phone in a vertical format“
- “The video needs to start and end with you holding the badge up to the camera”

- “During your video, show off a few poses in your costume or through the magic of editing you can transform into it”
- “After making your video, send it to us by filling out the application below”
- “Make sure to include your name and info in your application, as we want to credit everyone in the video”
- “The Anime NYC team will edit all the videos together and share the combined collab video during Anime NYC Online!”
