Long Beach Comic Con 2016 Cosplay Competition Registration Open
Think your costume is awesome? Then you have a chance to compete against other cosplayers at the seventh annual Long Beach Comic Con in just over a month.
The Cosplay Contest at the Long Beach Comic Con will be hosted by cosplayers Rhapsody Artejo & Chad Everett Lee Edward and will be taking place on Saturday, September 17th at 7pm at the Long Beach Convention Center.
“Cosplay has always been one of the most celebrated parts of the show,” says Executive Director and Co-Founder, Martha Donato. “It is very important that our show be friendly to cosplay in every aspect, on and off the show floor, with programming and events geared toward cosplayers from beginners to professionals.”
People love cosplaying, especially at the Long Beach Comic Con. “Our annual cosplay contest has grown into one of the highlights of the show, said Donato, “and it is always exciting to see the passion that goes into all of the costumes of our participants.”
There isn’t just one category for competition, but more than a half-dozen! Awards will be given for: Best Hero, Best Villain, Best Youth, Best Group, Funniest, Best TV/Movie, Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Judges’ Choice, and of course, Best in Show. Judges will be scoring for overall difficulty, creativity, accuracy (for recreation), and showmanship/character.
While the prizing has yet to be announced for the competitions, news will be forthcoming in the coming weeks. You can register here for the Cosplay Competition.
