Each contestant will be brought up on stage and allowed to showcase their cosplay in front of the crowd & judges. Once the contestant has finished showing off their design (quick twirl + being in character), they will be directed towards the other side of the stage to exit. Hosts might ask contestant questions on stage about their costume.
Once all contestants have showed off their cosplay, judges will collaborate. Judges & host might bring up contestants again to take another look at costumes. Once all judges have decided on a winner, that person will be brought back on stage.
The judges will individually vote on each participant in the following categories
The judges will keep their own scores, collaborate and once all contestants have been looked at, and decide a winner.
If any friends, family, or supporters of the contestant display poor sportsmanship towards the show and/or any other contestant, they will immediately be disqualified and banned from future contests. This was a major issue in previous years and has almost resulted in the event being discontinued. Thank you for your continued support.
