We’re proud sponsors of Cosplay Championships around the country, including this week’s Emerald City Comic Con Western Championships of Cosplay. These cosplayers are engaged in a race of one-up-manship that just keeps getting better every year. We’re fortunate to get access to the contestants right before they walk into the judging room, which gives us some time to ask them about how they made or conceived of their costume. We have a gallery of photos of all of the contestants at events.pixlr.com, but we wanted to congratulate the Best in Show, 1st place Western Champion.
Congratulations to Allie Rose-Marie Leost (@allierosemarie on Instagram) with her amazing portrayal of Warcaster Allison Jakes. The armor and construction was impeccable. Super colorful, totally bad-ass weaponry, and overall a very complex look. What really stood out was the “smoke” exhaust that emitted from her back. That kind of detail is always impressive. We salute you, Alley Cat Cosplay!
