Mini Cosplay and Unite with Anime Fanatics!

The Embassy of Japan in the Philippines is calling all anime fanatics and true-blue cosplayers to get their costumes ready, dress up like their favorite anime character and join the Cosplay Mini Contest in celebration of the 2012 Philippines-Japan Friendship Month.

The Mini Cosplay Event is open to all Filipino cosplayers from all ages who can cosplay character from Japanese anime, manga, movies, TV series, J-Pop and J-Rock personalities. Costumes that are revealing and potentially harmful such as bladed objects and pyrotechnics are not allowed.

To join the contest, interested cosplayers are required to submit a duly-accomplished application form, and include a 2×2 photograph, a full body photograph of them in costume and a photo of the character they are portraying. The Embassy of Japan will be selecting fifteen entries who will qualify for the grand finals. From the fifteen finalists, three will be selected as winners and will be awarded on July 21, 2012 at SM Mall of Asia’s Music Hall.

The application forms are available at the Japan Information and Culture Center (JICC) Library, Embassy of Japan, 2627 Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City or can be downloaded at www.ph.emb-japan.go.jp.

For further details, please visit www.ph.emb-japan.go.jp or email jicc-mnl@ma.mofa.go.jp or call 551-5710 local 2318.

The top three finalists will take home exciting prizes! What are you waiting for? Stand out and shine in this mini cosplay event!

  • Electro Ghetto80

    Can we cosplay as Lolitas?

    • Patrick Henry de Dios

      I don’t think lolita is a cosplay but more in the realm of fashion unless you are cosplaying characters whose style is lolita like Rozen Maiden and Gosick.
