Hello My Awesome Friends!
So, lately…. I’ve been thinking about finding ways to incorporate more Cosplay into what I already do… Life is busy though, so… it’s taking me a while to figure out just how I am going to make it all work… However, it has allowed me to learn more about it.
Now, don’t get me wrong… I know about Cosplay, I know the popularity of it and how much fun it all is… I get it… I know I can find a way to work it all in… I’ve got to after researching these Cosplay Battles! Have you heard of these? I’m sure most of you have but, they totally look like so much fun!!
As many of you know these Cosplay Competitions or battles if you will take place all over the world. Unfortunately, I have yet to attend one… hopefully soon!
There are even some websites that frequently hold online battles like such as, ign.com. Right now, the contest consists of past Comic-Con attendees. Their competition is called “Face Off.” They basically took pics of all the best Cosplay outfits so that now they can battle them against each other. They put two Cosplayer’s up against each other, and you get to decide which one is the winner. Cast your vote for your favorites today… Here’s the link if you feel like checking it out…
Okay, now who knows about Myx TV? Did you know that this site has Cosplay Comps for real cash? Oh, yeah… I said cold hard cash friends! The contest is actually called “Call To Cosplay.” During each episode, they feature two cosplayers. Those two cosplayers then compete for the cash. They are given a theme, a budget and, one mystery element to include in their costume, which they only have eight hours to create.
I just think this is such an excellent idea! There are two rounds… The first round is the “Creation” round. The two most important elements here are…
Each category is worth 20 points. The competitors will create their Cosplay costume then they will have a chance to describe what inspired them during its creation.
The second round is called the “Showcase” Round. There are two categories in this round too…
Craftsmanship is worth 20 points and showmanship is worth 40 points and that brings us to a total of 100 points. So by the end of the battle… whom ever is closest to getting all 100 points wins. Keep in mind any players that do not meet the 8 hour deadline are automatically disqualified and their opponent is deemed the winner. I just love this concept so much! Here’s a link to past competitions…
Not everything on the site has to do with Cosplay directly. The have a ton of shows… Its pretty much an online TV Station with multiple shows with various topics being played everyday. You can even look up the schedule so you know exactly what you want to tune in for along with a list of all their shows. It’s pretty freakin cool! Here’s a clip from one of their episodes… the theme here is Vampires! You know I love that & you will too… Check it out!
So was is your favorite the winner? Were you satisfied with those results or do you have a much different opinion? If so, comment and let me hear it! Is this something you would like to continue to watch? Were you impressed with the channel? I think I am… Lol.
