Miami, Florida. May 20, 2011
In the wake of the news that Hatsune Miku will be coming to Anime Expo 2011 to perform, AX and ACP are holding a cosplay contest for Miku and her friends!
You may enter the contest between now and June 17th at http://www.acparadise.com/
. On June 18th, all entries will be shown on the contest page, where people can vote for their favorite entries. The finalists with the most votes will be announced on June 24.
Who will we find to be the best Vocaloid cosplayer?
Since there are so many variants, this contest will be split into 6 subcontests.
Hatsune Miku http://www.acparadise.com/acp/contests.php?cid=79
Megurine Luka http://www.acparadise.com/acp/contests.php?cid=80
Kagamine Rin http://www.acparadise.com/acp/contests.php?cid=81
Kagamine Len http://www.acparadise.com/acp/contests.php?cid=82
The winner of each one of these six subcontests will not only have bragging rights of winning their category, but will also get a ticket to the Hatsune Miku concert at Anime Expo 2011. Even if you are not planning to attend Anime Expo, please enter and support your Vocaloid pride. You can enter all six of the subcontests if you have the cosplay for it, but you'll have to pick one costume per subcontest to enter.
1. Can we enter variants of these character's costumes? Your currently posted rules are confusing.
-Yes they are! And yes you can. Currently we have our generic rules posted to the contests, and we will modify them later today to match our previous Vocaloid contest rules: http://www.acparadise.com/acp/contests.php?cid=40
