MCM Expo 2010: Free Cosplay Competition
Just a heads-up reminder to come over to the “Cosplay Corner” photo booth at Expo. I want to see EVERYONE enter the free competition- no excuses unless accompanied by a letter from your Mother explaining why.

You’ll find me over by Manga Ent & Neo Magazine stand, just look for several hundred cosplayers forming an orderly queue (mornings are quietest time) ^_-

As you know this is the Cosplay Competition for people who don’t like to enter Cosplay Competitions (this is the 5th consecutive time it’s been run) full details here

Also you might like to download, print and fill in the entry form prior to arriving- this is critical for those under 18 as you’ll need a parents squiggle to approve your entry. Anyone with a filled in form goes to the front of the queue

Forms are also available on the day, but as you remember pens are in short supply (‘cuz someone keeps nicking them).

I might also add that this could well be the last chance to get your free shot this year as we may not be around to do this in October due to EuroCosplay- so bring your best cosplay in May!

PS I’m trying to arrange a make-up artists who can do any last minute tweaks for you, might be a couple of pounds for that though, but could be a life saver for some.

I try to do this each year, but with our costumes and the crush of expo we're lucky to get anywhere.

This year I'm only really getting into costume for the masquerade as the costumes are hot and awkward, and expo attendees are idiots for anyone in a face covering costume. If you were there after the masquerade was over I'd be happy to get a photo done, but before with expo in full swing won't be possible.

I thought this too! But now I know xD

Except, I don't have enough money to actually pay for a ticket to get inside. Hanging around outside is gonna have to be enough for me this time around =p
So if it's not free in October, I shall have to wait for next May and hope I have the money then xD


05 May 2010 - 18:5731249
I'll pop over and say hi!!! I always do.

It's usually pretty close to the Cosplay Desk, but can be easy to overlook with all the stalls there I guess

This sounds like fun, are you eligible to enter on Saturday and Sunday? Tempted to do both with different costumes but as I don't really go into the main hall on Sat as its so busy i'll probably be able on Sunday.


05 May 2010 - 21:1431270
Ahh never known about this before will try to make my way over at some point!

Is there a set time/day for it? When do you announce results?

I've always entered both days with different costumes so that's fine.

Paul's there pretty much all day that I've noticed. The results appear in Neo I think? And get announced online. Not long after the Expo.

Can't believe so many people haven't noticed this, I've done it since May 08!
Excuse me answering questions ^^' Hope I'm being helpful.

Not at all Leonie, thanks for the assist. You are correct in your answers.

We've been doing this in association with Manga Entertainment since May 08. LOL, yes, strange that I still hear that it's news to some. We started it because no one was recording all the wonderful cosplayers, and we've never charged (except for prints).

Everyone is welcome. Everyone can download their shot afterwards. All you need to do is fill out the consent form (legal requirement). Prizes are the same, if not better, than the Masquerade... ask any of the previous winners

Here is the scan of Neo Magazine for Oct 09 winners-
Neo Mag1 mine is the big butt
Neo mag2

gah!!
My wife and I have always thought you had to pay for this :s

Is there a restriction for larger cosplays? i mean i remember the rough sizes for the booth, but do you adjust for say cosplays that are quite tall or wide?

We've squeezed in large cosplay before, so don't shy about causing an inconvenience. Unless you are scale 1:1 EVA unit I wouldn't worry.

I forgot to thank you last year for taking pictures of me and my partner-I knew I didn't really have a hope in a blue moon of winning,but it turns out as my friends camera went missing,its the -only- record of our pikachu/pichu cosplay that exists!

We'll be sure to pop over this year-this time with slightly more 'grown up' costumes rather than seeming like 5 year olds even though we're 19 XD

Glad to have saved someone's day... and really, I've got shots of much older Pikachus (you know who you are!). But I look forward to you coming in with something new
