Long Beach Comic Con 2014 Contest!

Long Beach Comic Con’s annual contest was held on Saturday, hosted by Nerds Like Us and mc’d by Bernie Bergman.  The panel of judges included Vegas Power Girl, Raychul Moore, Castle Corsetry & Reevz FX.

The contestants eagerly waited for Bernie Bergman to call their name and when it happened, they showed how much blood, sweat, and tears, they put into their costumes.  Most of the costumes were simple, yet creative.  Others, were elaborate and quite brilliant in design.

Prizes, sponsored by HOKU PROPS, were awarded in the following categories:

Best in Show Despicable Me
Best Hero– Hiccup
Best Villain- Thresh (League of Legends)
Best Youth (kids 12 and under)– Rocket Raccoon and Star Lord
Funniest– Robot Chicken
Best TV/Movie– Walking Dead
Best Sci-Fi Captain Seekerman (Steampunk)
Best Group- Gotham Hobos
Judge’s Choice– (I can’t remember the name…)

Aside from a few hiccups and poor lighting, the show was very entertaining.  But, this was to be expected seeing as how Long Beach Comic Con is new to holding a cosplay contest.  After the show, I was able to chat with Bernie, a couple of the judges, and the designer of HOKU PROPS.

A great time was had by all and now it’s time to prepare for Comikaze Expo!

Cheers-

The Fatal Siren
