RULES & REGULATIONS
1. This competition is open to solo cosplayers.
2. Tentative programme as follows:
- 1:00pm Registration
- 2:00pm Round 1 – Cosplay Runway Challenge
- 2:30pm Round 2 – Cosplay Mall Tour
- 3:30pm Break
- 4:00pm Round 3 – Cosplay Talent Show
- 5:30pm Announcements of Results
3. Participants may portray a character from any genre, e.g. comic book superhero, MMORPG, literature, film, anime, cartoon, etc.
4. There will be 3 rounds of judging in the competition:
i) Round 1 is the Cosplay Runway Challenge, where each Participant is required to walk on stage in character. Participants will be judged based on their likeness to the original character they’re portraying as they walk the runway.
ii) Round 2 is the Cosplay Mall Tour, where all Participants will be parading around Ipoh Parade. Participants will be judged based on their interaction with the public as they assume their characters’ identities.
iii) Round 3 is the Cosplay Talent Show, where each Participant will be given a maximum of three (3) minutes to showcase their characters in-depth. This can be in the form of a skit, dance, song, martial art performance, etc. Participants may use their own music, or request for a background track from the Organiser’s sound console. Participants will be judged based on how well they portray their characters as they perform and their showmanship, e.g. a Participant may choose to depict Darth Vader in typical fashion with a lightsaber show, but could also opt for a more comedic route, i.e. a dance. Round 3 bears the highest marks across all rounds, so Participants are advised to think carefully about the nature of their performance here. For further clarification, contact the Organisers.
5. Judges’ decisions are final and no correspondence will be entertained.
6. The Organisers reserve the rights to change the competition requirements, format, schedule and prizes according to needs and circumstances without prior notice.
