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!
