Cosplay Gen is very pleased to announce a new media partnership with Otaku House, a collaboration through which we hope to further stimulate cosplayers in their wonderful work.
This year, Otaku House started off a very interesting initiative: Otaku House Cosplay Idol, a contest that attracted tens of thousands of fans, in which avid cosplayers around the world could showcase their cosplay photos and “meet” on the same platform. This competition was the first of its kind, and the prize was more than attractive: a total of USD$4000 worth of cosplay prizes.
The contest was split into four regions: North America, South America, Europe, and Asia & Australia.
Cosplay Gen will offer 12 copies of the magazine to the winners of each region, and will also award the Cosplay Idol 2011 winner with an exclusive interview, which will be published in the next issue of the magazine, Cosplay Gen #5.
The qualifying round has now closed, and right now the fans are voting to choose the first 3 finalists from North America. We wish all of them good luck!
