GeekFest 2017 Cosplay Contest | Complete Winners List

GeekFest 2017 has come and gone in a blink of an eye and even though the weather played a nasty prank on us, it was still lots of fun and tremendously geeky! The Cosplay Contest went ahead as scheduled, even though the wet weather nearly side-railed many a Cosplayer’s plans and we are very grateful for the support from the cosplay community.

This is the complete winners list from the GeekFest 2017 Cosplay Contest and the post will be updated with pictures from the green screen booth, as soon as they are available. Quite a few of our winners dressed up warmly after their judging slots to escape the chilly weather and we would love to show you the winning cosplays so keep checking in for the updates

GeekFest 2017 Cosplay Contest Winners List

Cosplayers could enter in a number of categories and divisions namely Individual Cosplayer (Anime/Manga or Pop Culture), Costume and Crafting and Skits. We also award a prize to the best Youth entry in the contest (cosplayers under 15) as well as the Overall Winners which are the highest scores in the contest. They also enter at different skill levels which are judged more strictly the higher the skill level.

To encourage kiddies participation and creativity, we host a Cosplay Padawans contest which is an informal version of the official Cosplay Contest. Excited to see what these young ones will get up to in the future!

About Linda Jager

Linda Jager
I’m proudly Geek and have a passion for all things pop-culture. Huge fan of The Walking Dead. Lover of gadgets and technology and although I’m not a gamer (sadly no hand-eye co-ordination) I find myself drawn to the gaming culture and community and how it connects with one of my biggest passions – collecting action figures and statues. I love to watch movies and series and there’s nothing better than having conversations with other people about the things I feel so passionately about. Being an 80’s child I am a huge fan of retro stuff and my Thundercats collection is one of my most prized possessions. That, and my A-Team van. Follow me on Twitter @LindaAtGES
