PERTH, Australia — Sexpo, after featuring a cosplay competition at its 2016 Melbourne show, has announced that cosplay will also be featured at Sexpo Perth, to be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre in Perth, Australia from May 5-7.
“The Sexpo Sexy Cosplay competition asks entrants to represent what they personally define as sexy and are judged on criteria based on creativity, audience interaction and their conveyance of what sexy is,” a Sexpo spokesperson said. “A unique cosplay competition like no other, the competition encourages contestants to break boundaries that they traditionally couldn’t at other conventions and embrace creativity and sexuality through cosplay.”
For Sexpo Perth 2017, there will be two heats on Saturday, May 6, with the final to be held on Sunday, May 7 at 4:15 p.m. Up for grabs is a $1500 grand prize for the winner, which is one of the largest cash prizes offered for a cosplay competition in Australia.
In addition, the winner will also receive an all-expenses paid trip to the next Sexpo Sexy Cosplay Competition. Each heat finalist will also receive $500 cash, and each heat contestant will receive an exclusive Sexpo show bag worth $250.
