    I attended the Tampa Bay comic con this past Saturday on August 1, 2015 this was my very first cosplay suit that I've ever made and my first contest I entered and won best in show. I cannot believe the reaction that I got from people it was absolutely amazing . On another note somebody wants to buy or should I say a company wants to buy my suit so they can make their own version out of what I created .My question is should I sell it to them so they can produce it multiple times and make money off of what I created or should I just keep it?

    Congrats man, that's an awesome costume and it must feel great to win your first time entering. Having never been in your position before, I can't see a downside to selling your suit besides the obvious one of not being able to keep it as a memento. As an artist in general I'd suggest working something out where they have to at least recognize you for creating the original design, and I'm sure somebody else in the community would know more about how much you'd want to sell the costume for and if royalties would be a possibility.

    EDIT: also you should probably see about deleting the other 2 threads

    Hey! I saw you at TBCC! Your suit IS fantastic!
    I would not give up your suit unless
    1- you are not going to ever use it again
    2- you received something really goid for your hard work!

    It almost seems to me as if they'd be profiting off of your work - and that doesn't sit well with me.

    Thats my two cents'

    Thanks guys. I'm trying to determine the best thing right now. I guess I couldn't really copyright my character eh?

    I guess not, but Iron Venom does sound pretty cool

    I felt bad a few times. I rushed to take it off a few times and to get to the contest. I was in SOO much pain walking in that thing. I couldn't stop to let everybody take a pic

    Ouch! A costume that is painful to wear? That would influence my decision.

    Awesome! I thought TBCC was a bit of a let down this year. Not just because of the insane rain and lack of parking but it didn't seemed as well planned out as last years, or even Megacons was.

    Yeah. This years megacon felt the same. But compared to what tampa did a few years ago. It's gotten better

    Competed against you in the contest (I was the armored Batman) and I knew I would lose to you as soon as I saw your costume. Great work!
