Gametraders Blacktown Cosplay Comp February 12 2012

Today at Gametraders Blacktown, there was another of the increasingly regular cosplay competitions.   There were some great entries, and I am excited to share them here with you all.   The best male and female costumes will each win a copy of Naruto Shippuden Collection 8, which is due in store later this week.   Results will be announced on the Gametraders Blacktown facebook page when the winners have been decided.

Note, the photos below are also available on the Gametraders facebook page.   I was the only one there with a camera!!

I was having a good chat with the gentlemen from the Umbrella Corp, and learned they are part of a much larger Resident Evil Cosplay group, Project Ouroboros.   They have both a website and a facebook page that interested parties can view, so click the links and check them out.

Female Entries

Lisanna Strauss from Fairy Tail

Sweet Lolita

Baby Doll

I was having a chat with Candice, whom is dressed as Baby Doll from Sucker Punch above.   She is really keen on her cosplay, and even has her own Cosplay Fanpage on Facebook, where she shares images of the costumes she has made and gives advice on how to make your own.   I have checked it out and it is definitely well worth a browse!!

It was a great day with fun to be had by all entrants and customers.   The cosplay events always get some great costumes coming through the front door, and I look forward to seeing what people come up with next time!!
