Congratulations to the SEXPO Sydney 2016 Sexy Cosplay Winner.
“SEXPO has been an amazing journey and I cannot begin to explain what an incredible whirlwind my experience with SEXPO has been this year.
Through this competition I have made incredible new friends, networked, travelled, pushed myself, challenged people, inspired and been inspired. The money and flights were amazing but these other things are the ones that will stay with me forever.”
Sydney 2016 SEXPO Sexy Cosplay Winner and Melbourne 2016 SEXPO Sexy Cosplay Judge Vandolly Cosplay and Burlesque”
HOW WILL THE COMPETITION WORK?
There will be two heats and one final held on the main stage at SEXPO Brisbane 2017.
Heat 1: Saturday Aug 5, 2.00 PM
Heat 2: Saturday Aug 5, 8.30 PM
Final: Sunday Aug 6, 4.15 PM
Competitors will be judged on several different criteria:
– Creativity and craftsmanship of their costume
– Interaction with the audience
– How well they convey their idea of “sexy cosplay”
There are no restrictions on what you can cosplay as. You may choose to dress up as your favourite video game character, superhero, meme or mythical creature. What is important is how that costume communicates your idea of “sexiness” to the judges and audience, and how it represents cosplaying as a whole; remember, a lot of the visitors at SEXPO have never encountered cosplay before – this is a chance to introduce them to how fun it can be, so let your creativity run wild!
Each heat winner will receive $500 cash, and the grand final winner will receive an additional $1000 cash plus an all-expenses paid trip to the next SEXPO Sexy Cosplay Competition*. If you don’t win a heat, don’t worry, you’ll still walk away with a SEXPO Showbag full of goodies valued at $250.
