Cosplayers and Comics at Cosfest

Catch all the action happening LIVE on http://live.insing.com  (The live streaming is now cancelled. Please tune back next week!)

Calling all manga and anime fans! Head on down to Downtown East this weekend for Cosfest X.1 to see your favourite characters in the flesh!

Witness thousands of cosplayers from the Philippines, Korea, Malaysia and Singapore as they swan about and strike poses in all their costumed glory. This definitely makes for a Kodak moment as well, so don’t forget the camera!

If this isn’t enough to bedazzle you, stick around for the various regional and local cosplay competitions! Catch the best cosplayers in the region as they battle it out for the title of ‘Finest Cosplayer in Asia’ in the Asia Cosplay Meet Championship. Competition is really intense as the winners from both World Cosplay Summit Malaysia and Singapore will get to represent their country in the World Cosplay Summit in Japan to take a shot at becoming the World Cosplay Champion!

One of the event’s other highlights includes ComicsWorldAsia, where amateur and professional local and regional comic artists will be showcasing their merchandise. Expect a wide variety of self-published manga, magazines and novels! Who knows, that edition you get your hands on might be worth a fortune someday.

 

Cosfest X.1 is on June 25-26 at D’Marquee and D’Tent, Downtown East. Admission is free.
