Cosplay Model Photo Submission Guidelines

Sexy Fantastic Magazine is looking for photos of female cosplay models for our Sexy Fantastic Heroine section. Each issue of Sexy Fantastic features pinup style photos and a profile of each model. The photos are in the spirit of burlesque, erotic not pornographic, displaying women as empowered and comfortable with their sexuality, not as sex objects. Models must be 18 years of age.
Model Submissions are currently closed.
We are looking for sensual, sexy and erotic photos. The poses can be quiet or dynamic. They can show the entire figure or only part of the figure, but your head must be visible. As much skin can be revealed as desired, but genitals and anus must not be visible. Costumes should look authentic. We would rather see your original creations or a fantastic concept of yourself than known media characters (using recognizable logos and costumes could create legal use issues, so we would rather avoid this). If models are unable to create a convincing backdrop, please shoot against a neutral color (such as an unlit green or black sheet). We enjoy a retro look, but are not limited to that.
Below are questions that the model will need to answer for her profile in the magazine once her photos are accepted for an issue. It is not necessary to answer the questions until your photos are chosen. We would also like a very short paragraph explaining your inspiration for the costume and photos (all info may be edited by us for quality or length or omitted, except for the model’s chosen name).

Format and Submission Guidelines
Photos should be shot as professionally as possible, in portrait (not landscape) format. Dramatic lighting is preferred. Images should be delivered as jpgs, pngs or tiffs at 300 dpi resolution, with dimensions of at least 8.5” x 11” (2550 x 3300 pixels).

Please submit 3-5 photos. Photos should be sent to: model (at) with the subject header “Model Submission,” or you can provide a link where the photos can be downloaded instead of emailing the images.

A model release form will be sent to the model if her photos are chosen, and must be signed and returned to Sexy Fantastic. The photos must be owned by the model, or she must at least have the power to grant rights for Sexy Fantastic Magazine to use the photos.

The publishing company of Sexy Fantastic, Dream Tower Media, is buying global first print and digital publication rights. Dream Tower Media will have the exclusive rights to publish and use the purchased material prior to and for one year following the publication of those materials. After that period, Dream Tower Media will retain the right to publish and sell the purchased materials non-exclusively. Dream Tower Media will have the right to use your name and a portion or the whole of the material to promote the magazine. During the period of exclusivity, you agree to refrain from publishing the purchased material in whole or in part without prior consent. If you would like to submit photos of yourself that have been previously published, please send an email query explaining the circumstances and it will be considered.

Models will be paid $100 plus a one-year subscription to the magazine if and when their photos are published in the magazine.
