Hello, and welcome to DecorusCosplay!
"Decorus" is a latin word which means "beautiful", "graceful", "charming".
As you might already found out, here we showcase the most beautiful cosplay outfits and photos around the world. Everyone is free to watch us, but we'll be giving special attention to upcoming "join requests" since this group is for the highest quality cosplayers. Not every photo needs to be a masterpiece to be accepted in the group. Though, in order to keep it organized, there are some rules our members should follow:

:bulletblue: We wish to display the best, so bear in mind that everything from Make-up/Wig, Costume detail, Character portraying, Photography skill and Photoshop/Photo quality counts or any of the admins have the right to reject your photo.

:bulletblue: As it's obvious, every photo needs to have good quality. It's always a disappointment when we see an amazing costume with a blurred or grainy photo.

:bulletblue: You need to be either the photographer or the cosplayer in order to submit your work.

:bulletblue: When sending pictures, please keep in mind that we might decline those who only show their owner's face. (Meaning no myspace angles/camwhore are allowed.) After all, we are looking forward to see great outifts in equally great photography.Same goes to make-up test.

:bulletblue: Please try to submit ONLY your best photos.

:bulletblue: You can photoshop your pictures all you want, but please do not add any speech balloons and things of the sort. You can always add a thin frame with a "neutral" color around the picture and a small cosplayer/photographer copiright tag, but please do not write any big phrases with weird fonts or brushes. That way, your deviation will be declined.

:bulletblue: Submit only three photos per outfit.

:bulletblue: Photos containing nudity (not too graphic) are allowed but should have the "Mature Content" tab on them.

:bulletblue: Submit into the correct folders.

:bulletblue: Convention photos are not allowed. It's a disappointment when we see a great costume with a bunch of people on the background. Of course, if the photo and costume in question are REALLY, REALLY good, then we'll open an exception. Preview photos are also not allowed.

:bulletblue: Stage photos can be excuse to a certain extent when the performers are not blurred, there is not stage equipment shown in the photo [e.g speakers, event banners, lights, microphone stand etc.] and lastly, if there's a screen, please show us a full screen and the content of the screen must match the performance [e.g, scenery, narration] or else the photo may have a high chance of being rejected.

:bulletblue: Your costume doesn't need to be made by yourself in order to be in the group. If it's good, then we'll accept it.

:bulletblue: The "Movies and Books" folder only applies to movies/books made "from scratch". Those that were firstly made and thought to be movies/books. For example, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children is in fact, a movie, but since it was firstly made as a game, deviations containing characters from said movie will go to the "VideoGames" folder.

Note: As the group gets bigger, we have been getting even more strict then before, So if one of your photos is "declined", don't think we're putting you on the side and don't feel bad about it. Instead, take it as an encouragement and keep on practicing! : )
Hello, we just recently had a recruitment for members to help us vote for incoming photos, but it seems as though we have gotten a lot of expired submissions because a few of our members are not very active at the moment. We are currently looking for 1 or 2 more people who are active daily or generally active 3-5 times a week.

If you are interested, please comment below. We are very strict with many submissions, so we please ask that you re-read the rules and determine if you think your eye is good enough to keep our group "up-to-snuff." We will take a look at your profile to help determine if your favorites and submissions provides us with how well your good eye is for selecting pictures! Thank you so very much!

Any questions or concerns, please ask below. (: We do not bite!

Hi! I have a question: I want to try submiting this picture but I'm not sure in what folder I should do it. The character I'm cosplaying is an official character but the costume is from a fanart (so not official art) and since it's not an OC or designed by me, I'm not sure if it fits in the Originals folder or if it goes somewhere else? I'm sorry for taking your time but I'm not sure where exactly I should submit it.

I would just put it under whatever category it fits in, whether it's anime and manga or movies and books, etc.

Ok, thank you so much! :heart:

Hello! I'm sorry for taking your time, but I've submited a picture and it expired, and I'm not sure if that means it was declined? This is the picture in question. I'm not complaining or anything of the sort, I'm really just wondering if it was denied or something happened and you didn't receive any submission request? Once again I apologize for taking your time, and thank you so much!

When a picture expires it doesn't mean it was declined. Actually, must of the contributors haven't been online lately and that's why many deviations expire. Please, re-submit your photos when it happens!

Hello (Ou olá, visto que somos as duas portuguesas xD)! When a picture expires, it doesn't mean it has been declined. Unfortunately, since we're currently short on active contributors to have pictures voted, a lot of great submited ones end up expiring after some time. You can always try to submit that photo once more and I'll do everything possible to get our contributors to vote. If it ends up being declined, please note that the acceptance of a picture into the group does not depend on just one moderator.

We're sorry for the inconvenience and we hope you don't give up on the group x.x
