Helmetgirl Cosplay Walkoff Contest

The 2011 Cos & Effect convention hosted at the University of British Columbia is this weekend! There’s still time to get a costume together for the Camilla d’Errico Helmetgirl Cosplay Walkoff Contest, and the fine people at Boo La La can help anyone still interested in participating in the show. If you’re attending, please RSVP on Facebook and help us spread word of the event!

The Helmetgirl Cosplay Walkoff Contest will begin at 12:00 in the Main Ballroom, but models will need to arrive 15 minutes early to prepare backstage. Professional photographers will be on-hand to take stunning photos of all the costumes. Camilla will be the judge of the contest, and the grand prize winner will receive an original piece of art! Since it’s so great to have the support of such dedicated fans, we’re working on putting together special prize packages for everyone who enters. ^_^

We’re also very excited to announce the launch of an all-new Helmetgirls website, where you can learn about the different characters, and share your photos, comments, and stories on the fanwall!

Hope you’ll check out the new site, and please let us know if you see anything that should be updated for fixed. Thank you!

Cos & Effect 2011 – Helmetgirl Cosplay Walkoff

We’re excited to announce that there will be a Camilla d’Errico Helmetgirl Cosplay Walkoff as part of Cos & Effect 2011, hosted at the University of British Columbia from August 13 & 14th! Tickets are $20 at the door, or can be purchased online after creating an account. If you’re in the Vancouver area, you can also buy tickets in person at Metropolis Comics and Toys, Sakura Media, or Gamedeals.

The Helmetgirl Cosplay Walkoff will be held on Sunday, August 14th, most likely at Noon sharp, but the time may change. We’ll be sure to let you know the exact time as we get closer to the date. Since we know it takes a good deal of planning and effort to make a costume, we wanted to give you a heads up with all the details, plus show some examples of previous cosplayers. (Click on any of the photos for a larger view!)

The IRL Events website has a special forum section for information about the show, and a place for people to talk about their projects and get tips from fellow cosplayers. Camilla has posted her own thread about the Helmetgirl Cosplay Walkoff, and maps, panels, and other retailer information can be found here.

Camilla will be attending Cos & Effect in person, plus there will be a table set up to purchase several items, like prints, books, t-shirts, and bags. As well, there will prizes for the Helmetgirl Cosplay Walkoff, including an original piece of Camilla d’Errico art! More details about the prizes as we get closer to the event.

If you’re thinking of attending, please RSVP and spread the word! And if you need inspiration, we’ve set up an entire gallery on Facebook you can browse, or view all seventeen of original paintings on this site. Finally, if you’re looking for help, visit Cosplay.com, plus there’s a fantastic costume retailer in Canada called BooLaLa that has lots of great steam punk items you can use as the foundation for your project.

Hope to see you at the event! ^.^
