Cosplay Island at MinamiCon


Article by Delusional posted Sunday 24th February 2008

It's less than a week away now from one of the cosiest cosplay events of the year, and of course Cosplay Island will be there. For Minami this year we'll be providing video and written coverage of the cosplay. Not only that, we're also sponsoring this year's floor prize competition. So in your convention pack you'll find a little Cosplay Island floor prize token you should give to the best cosplayer you see walking around the convention.

Event Coverage

As we did with the last London MCM Expo we'll be providing full coverage of Minami. We'll be going around with a video camera to record the masquerade and interviews with cosplayers. Once the convention is over and we're all suffering from post con blues we'll also be doing a full written report to remind you what went on.

Floor Prize

Every year Minami runs a floor prize for cosplayers. This year we're sponsoring it. So when you dig through your con pack (aka that bag of junk) you'll find a little token like the one in the image below. To take part in the competition all you need to do is give this token to the best cosplayer you see walking around the convention. If you've recieved a few of these tokens take them up to "ops" room before the the masquerade on Saturday, we're told no later than 4pm would be ideal. The person with the most tokens will be announced at the masquerade and will be awarded a special prize.
