Sweden is stepping up the cosplay game this year with its the first Swedish Championship in Cosplay, which will be held at UppCon: 11 on the 5th of June, 2011. The final contestants have been picked from the four major conventions in Sweden: MeuwCon, UppCon (10), ConFusion and NärCon. Two more spots will be selected from an ongoing competition on the internet and four more contestants will be chosen at this year’s UppCon.
Update: Alright, it’s time we announce our winner for this week! Looks like this one wasn’t as easy as the first two cosplayers we posted, some thinking it was either Ju Tsukino or Yuki Lefay. But it wasn’t, and as some of you have guessed, it’s Pixelninja from Sweden with her Samus Aran from Metroid cosplay! [..]
Update: Ok, so a week has passed and the contest is now over! Thanks again to everyone who participated in the contest, looks like this one wasn’t hard for you guys either. As you’ve all guessed, it’s Hydeaoi from Hong Kong, China, with her Hatsune Miku (Spacy Nurse/Love Ward version) cosplay.
Remember how we said we have a limited number of 500 posters? Hydeaoi is going to be on one side of it with her Hatsune Miku Spacy Nurse cosplay! [..]
Alright, we’ve kept you waiting long enough: Cosplay Gen #03 is now available for pre-order! Now let us tell you what’s new in our third issue!
Congratulations people! Looks like everyone guessed it was TASHA cosplaying as Scanty from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt. Bet you didn’t know she was going to be on the cover as well! Hover over the illustration in order to see the cover of Cosplay Gen #03.
Starting this issue, Cosplay Gen will have a special column, “Worldwide Fans”, dedicated to our fans on this group, whom we’d like to promote in the pages of our magazine. This column will cover two pages and will include photos arranged in a mosaic-like pattern (reference).
Breaking Down: Cosplay is a 6-part web series following Jordan O’Leary into the fascinating world of cosplay, taking up a costume at a convention for the first time, having his picture taken and talking to all sorts of folks at the convention about this hobby. It’s certainly not the most professional and accurate, but it offers a pretty good perspective from an outsider’s point of view. [..]
We have an important announcement to make to our readers from the US territories: due to new additional security measures imposed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the total time it will take for our magazine to get to you will reach up to 4-6 weeks. As of January, all our packages dispatched for the US will be sent with a tracking number (free of charge) for localization in case of delays or lost packages. We’re sorry for the inconvenience!
In other news, our third issue is almost done, we’ll be coming back soon with more details. Keep a watch out!
