Elene Cosplay & Halloween Costume Contest

Elene Cosplay & Halloween Costume Contest

Check out this amazing cosplay of Elene Cromwyll:

The very talented Elene N. (yep, that’s her real name) made this Night Angel cosplay for a Con in Norway. Here are some more pictures:

We’ll be sending her some loot, but we also want to give you a chance to win some!

Grand Prize: A complete signed set of The Lightbringer Series, in Hardcover, and the first two chapters of The Blood Mirror! (Nobody else has this. Not even Brent’s editor! But you can’t share it with anyone!)

Second Place: A signed hardcover copy of The Broken Eye, and signed copies of The Blinding Knife and The Black Prism in trade paperback.

Third Place: A signed copy of The Broken Eye.

Fourth Place: Three signed bookplates.



1. Entries may be submitted started today (September 29) until Monday, November 3rd at 5pm Pacific Standard Time.

2. Entry must include a picture of you in a costume inspired by the Night Angel Trilogy or The Lightbringer Series (go HERE to check out the Night Angel character sketches), along with a one or two sentence description.

3. International entries are allowed and encouraged!

4. As long as the costume is materially yours, some Photoshop is fine (no presenting characters from movies or video games by putting a gloss of Photoshop on it and saying it’s your costume).

5. Two entries allowed per person, but you can only win once.

6. The subject line of the email should read: 2014 Costume Contest

7. Address the email to CAPSLOCK @ (no spaces; and as in previous years, Brent will be selecting the winners).

8. The costume must be family-friendly (as usual, we’d like to display the best entries on the website and we can’t do that if it’s not appropriate for younger fans).

9. Other:

Video submissions are allowed, but Brent is judging the costume, not the video. Brent will judge costumes individually if you have two people in a photo, but only one person will receive a prize. You must be 18 or older to win (younger participants are welcome, but by law I can’t give you a prize). No purchase is necessary. Odds of winning are based on the number of entries. We will notify winners via email; you must respond within 7 days, or another winner will be chosen. The grand prize is worth approximately $100. Second place is worth approximately $60. Third place is worth approximately $30. Fourth place is worth about $15.

Winners will be announced on Monday, November 10, 2014.
