MELBOURNE — Sexpo has announced its judging panel for the Melbourne version of its Sexy Cosplay Competition. 

Based on the success of the Sexy Cosplay Competition at Sexpo’s Sydney convention in May, Sexpo said, “Melbourne’s event will see an improved competition.” Sexpo Melbourne 2016 will run from Thursday, Nov. 24 through Sunday, Nov. 27 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The winner will take home $2000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to the next Australian Sexpo Sexy Cosplay. The heat winners will receive $500 cash, and every heat contestant will receive a $250 Sexpo showbag.

The competition will be hosted by Lucie Bee, with guest judging from Jimmy Reilly — who is known as Jimmy The Geek because of his antics on the Australian television program, “Beauty and the Geek.” Joining Reilly will be Siren Vandoll, Sydney’s Sexy Cosplay winner. And the judging panel will feature American adult star Alana Evans.

Bentleigh Gibson, event manager for Sexpo, said, “The judging panel represents a cross-section of the cosplaying and pop-culture community. We are thrilled that Alana, Jimmy and Siren have joined Sexpo in promoting this competition as a safe and fun way for cosplayers to express their passion in a sexy way.”

The judging process for Sexpo Melbourne 2016 will be slightly different from that of Sydney, with participants being evaluated on criteria that include audience interaction, a short interview with the host and identifying how well their cosplay conveys their idea of sexy.

The heats at Sexpo’s Melbourne Sexy Cosplay Competition will include Heat 1 on Friday, Nov. 25 at 7:45 p.m., Heat 2 on Saturday, Nov. 26 at 3:30 p.m. and Heat Wave on Nov. 26 at 7:45 pm., with the final to take place on Sunday, Nov. 27 at 5 p.m.
