We feel we owe a lot to a wide community of worldwide cosplayers without whom we would still sob after superheroes/heroines existing only on screen, paper, in video games or OVAs. Now we believe that they truly walk the earth and are living all around us. You brought them closer than ever before. [..]
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! [..]
In the beginning of the fourth episode of Cosplay: The Series, we find all the group members reunited and working hard to set their first original cosplay performance. Costumes, story, performing, everything is taken extremely seriously by our young protagonists.

COSPLAY: The Series continues with a very touching third episode, focused on Nesya, the group’s Lolita. We take a short break from the actual “action” of the series, in order to find out what’s behind the sweet girl wearing all those frills and lace, who can make and eat delicious cookies without losing wait and who knows the way of sewing her beautiful dresses. [..]
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! [..]
After the introductory first episode, the second episode of COSPLAY: The Series immerses you directly into action. As the friendly approach in the “prologue” makes it so easy to be acquainted with the characters (the way they resemble a prototype of a certain aspect in the otaku world is absolutely delightful), it seems very natural to follow them into initializing their masterplan to save the Cosplay Club.
