Rising Star Games Wants to See You Bring Their Fighters to Life!

Thursday 29th September 2011: In celebration of new game THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII, cosplayers have the opportunity to let their vision run wild at the forthcoming MCM Expo London Comic Con, which runs from 28th to 30th October at ExCeL London.

Go head-to-head with other King of Fighters cosplayers on Saturday 29th October on the 'Totally Cosplay' stage and show the judges how you bring the characters from the game to life for your chance to be dubbed the King of Fighters. You will need a combination of costume and attitude to win. Show the pride and nobility of Elisabeth Blanctorche or the dark hearted ambition of Ash Crimson, or whomever you want to bring to life from the extensive King of Fighters cast.

Representatives from Rising Star Games and Totally Cosplay will judge the competition. Their decision is FINAL and will be based on an assessment of costume accuracy and how accurately the character's nature is portrayed. Costumes may be made, customised, or bought.

Eager to take part? Contact the MCM Cosplay Team by emailing [email protected] to express interest, or visit the Totally Cosplay area on Friday 28th or by noon on Saturday 29th October to sign up.
