Article by Annette W (Mighty Odango) posted Monday 27th April 2015

The UK qualifying event for the European Cosplay Gathering has been announced! This years' qualifiers will be selected at EGX, on September 27th, at the Birmingham NEC, so start planning and making your costumes now for a chance to represent the UK at the ECG Finals in Paris next year. One pair and one solo cosplayer will be selected.

EGX is investing in a larger cosplay stage and cosplay area to accommodate ECG in their first year of hosting the qualifiers. The contest is open to all styles of cosplay (not just games). Entry is open to contestants who either have a UK passport or have lived in the UK for 5 years or more and will be aged 18 by 1st July 2016.

Cosplayers are recommended to buy their tickets in advance as the show often sells out. However, cosplayers who are registered as ECG contestants only need buy an afternoon ticket for Sunday as they will be upgraded to early entry free of charge.

There will be a 3rd big cosplay contest at EGX announced soon, which will be gaming themed!

Convention season is starting up in earnest again! This weekend sees
London Super Comic Convention taking place at the Excel Centre in (surprisingly enough) London, which will feature the London Super Costume Championship. This competition has a great prize and is judged by well-known international cosplayers Yaya Han, Kamui, and Bill Doran of Punished Props, so it should be pretty intense and definitely worth a watch. There will also be an "Open Masquerade" for those who want a slightly more relaxed cosplay competition.
