The UKGE Cosplay Parade 2.30 PM Sunday, Main Foyer
Cosplayers, this is your chance to show the gamers what it's all about.
John Dodd, UKGE Floor Manager, has organised a Cosplay Parade in a big loop around the Hotel.
As part of the awards ceremony on Sunday 31st May we will be presenting awards for best costumes from those present during the cosplay parade. We will be looking for a combination of the costume and attitude in all our cosplayers, we all know that it's all about being the character, so be the character, show the world what it's all about. Our special guests will be doing the judging on the day and they've spent a fair bit of time in costume themselves, so they know what it's all about. This event is about encouraging cosplay in all its forms and rewarding the enthusiasm that all of us have for what we do.
The winners will receive a trophy and a small cash prize, and of course, Eternal Glory
A Prize pool of £200 will be divided between the participants. We will be looking for a winner and a runner up in the adult as well as 15 and under group.
Cosplayers will gather in the Main Hotel Foyer at 2.30 PM. Weather permitting, the Parade will proceed across to the Monarch Entrance and then from there to the Kings Room, thence down the main corridor back to the Foyer – aiming to arrive back at just before 3PM.”
