SEXPO Sydney 2016 will launch the inaugural SEXPO COSPLAY COMPETITION, to be hosted by adult star and geek goddess Lucie Bee and fellow adult star/partner in crime Kim Cums.
We know that there are people out there who enjoy dressing up in outfits of their favourite superheroes, villains, characters from adult movies, or just want an excuse to try on that sexy outfit in a safe, fun and comfortable environment.
SEXPO Australia introduces SEXPO COSPLAY. Yes that’s right, you heard it here first – SEXPO are taking the traditional art of cosplay and adding a bit of sexy spice.
With similar events geared towards the family friendly cosplay market, SEXPO aims to capture those cosplayers who like a sexier angle to their cosplay enthusiasm. In addition to the competition, SEXPO will create a cosplay-friendly area – the Cosplay Chill Zone – within the event, specifically for those cosplayers who want to socialise and mingle with other enthusiasts, and share their passion with other SEXPO patrons.
HOW WILL THE COMPETITION WORK?
There will be four SEXPO COSPLAY heats and one final held on the main stage at SEXPO Sydney 2016:
– Friday May 13 at 2:15PM
– Friday May 13 at 7:30PM
– Saturday May 14 at 2.:00PM
– Saturday May 14 at 7:00PM
– Final: Sunday May 15 at 5:00PM
A maximum of 10 entries will be selected per heat.
SEXPO management will select the 40 most deserved winners for the four individual heats.
Finalists will be contacted in advance to confirm their preferred heat and issued a free general admission ticket to enter the show, and then must simply turn up 1.5 hours prior to their heat and register with the SEXPO Cosplay Coordinator.
Competitors will be judged on two criteria:
1. Most creative and sexy cosplay outfit
2. The most creative interaction the competitor has with judge Lucie Bee and the audience
Each heat entrant will score a SEXPO show bag valued at $250. The winner of each heat will take away $500. For the final, the four heat winners will be invited back, with the winner receiving:
- 1 x return airfare from Sydney to the next Australian SEXPO
- 4 nights accommodation
- $1,500 spending money
- Crowned the inaugural SEXPO COSPLAY Sydney winner
Total cash prize of $2,000 ($500 from heat win + $1,500 from grand final)
Additionally, the winner will co-host the next SEXPO COSPLAY COMPETITION alongside our judges.

Absolutely no replica or real weapons are to be brought into SEXPO. There is a total ban on firearms – no guns, real or replica, will be permitted either on the show floor or during the competition. While replica weaponry may be acceptable at other dedicated cosplay conventions, some SEXPO patrons may not understand the nature of cosplay and may feel uneasy about you carrying weaponry within the show. Before entering the event, you will be required to check any weapon props in to the cloakroom; you can reclaim them on departure from SEXPO.
