SEXPO® – Health, Sexuality & Lifestyle Exhibition, the world’s premier event for the adult industry, recently announced its judging line up for Perth’s first SEXPO® Sexy Cosplay Competition.
SEXPO® now brings to Perth one of the largest cash prizes for cosplay offered in Australia; $1,500 cash for the winner as well as an all-expenses paid trip to the next Australian SEXPO® Sexy Cosplay Competition. Winners of each heat will walk away with $500 each, and every heat participant will receive a SEXPO® showbag worth $250.
The competition is once again being hosted by Australia’s favourite goddess of geek, Lucie Bee. The panel of judges will feature Sharné McMurray, winner of SEXPO’s® Cosplay Competition in Melbourne 2016, who wowed SEXPO® audiences with her stunning self-made cosplay of a Twi’lek slave from the Star Wars Universe. Joining Sharné will be Patrick Kennedy, a runner up at the same show with his own spectacular version of a gender-bent Wonder Woman. Rounding out the panel will be love coach and SEXPO® MC, Belinda Love who brings a fresh perspective to the Sexpo Cosplay Competition.
The judging process in Perth will carry through that of Melbourne’s; participants being evaluated on a number of criteria including: creativity, audience interaction, a short interview with the host and identifying how well their cosplay conveys their idea of sexy.
SEXPO® Event Manager Bentleigh Gibson said “…we are delighted that Australia has been so welcoming of this new concept and we have little doubt that Perth will be just as supportive as Sydney and Melbourne.”
