With ComicCon Asia just on the horizon, anyone from anywhere can sign up to represent their favorite fandom in full character regalia on March 24-25. Yes, there will be prizes – and whether you’re a chibi or an otaku, the trophy is up for grabs because anybody from ages 11 and up can join and strut the stage to deck it out! But take it easy, kids, because you’ll need to get the official parental permission slip signed before you can join. It’s super quick to fill out and for those of you 18 and above, you just have to register and you’re all set.
Remember, this match is a one-on-one duke out for victory, so only individual participants can join. Once you’ve done your pep talk and pumped up your music, just head on over to ComicCon Asia’s official site to register and find everything you need to know about the convention and contest. The whole registration process is free and once you receive your confirmation e-mail, the real game begins!
For this battleground, you get to choose the world you enter on stage for – Anime, Gaming, or Western/Filipino. Once you pick your category, it’s time to gear up and choose between Fabric or Armor for your costume. Prepare for two matches – Eliminations, and Finals. Finally, the grand winners will receive awesome goodies including a whopping P50,000 grand prize! Don’t worry though, there are no secondary players here as semi-finalists will also receive P10,000 each.
So, for all the dungeon warlords, space princesses, and manga maniacs hiding in the shadows, now is your time to traverse the cosplay stage and get the gold. With the combined strengths of your costume accuracy, craftsmanship, and characterization, you just might be the new champion! Registration is up and running, and more of the contest mechanics and requirements can be found here.
