The Adelaide round of the Madman National Cosplay Championship was held over the weekend at AVCON – Adelaide’s annual anime and video games convention. With a total of 7 contestants, this was one of the biggest rounds we had all year. Being the final chance for anyone to qualify for the finals also made things tougher for this field and they all fought valiantly.
The eventual winners were as follows:
1st Place – Olivia Caputi – Astharoshe Asran “Asta” from Trinity Blood
2nd Place – Desert Rose – Sanzang from Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce II
3rd Place – Usagi Hime as Aeon from Castlevania Judgement –The Game-
Congratulations to all contestants! Everyone did a fantastic job and we see next year’s preliminaries to be even tougher if the standards of this year’s ones have been anything to go by.
With all of the rounds finished we can also now reveal the wildcard entries for the finals. They include:
Wildcard 1 – Desert Rose (Adelaide)
Wildcard 2 – Endless Blaze (Brisbane)
Wildcard 3 – Twinklee and Velithya (Perth)
This will mean that there is now a total of 8 teams for the final event at Supanova Expo Brisbane on November 5th. The event will be broadcast live online at www.madman.com.au/cosplay and we will have lots of behind the scenes stuff ongoing as well. Look forward to November everyone! The finals are coming!
