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!
Great news for anyone participating in the Helmetgirl Cosplay Walkoff at Cos & Effect 2011 this year on August 13th & 14th at the University of British Columbia – you can get your costume and professional styling done at Boo La La for %15 off!
In the blog post with all of the details of the event, we made a note that the store would be a good place to find steam-punk inspired accessories, and now the store has promised to offer any participating cosplayers 15% off of their total purchase. Plus, Dani at Boo La La is a professional stylist and photographer! So, if you would like her to do your make-up and take high-quality photos of you in your costume at her studio, you can get a discount on that too!

If you’re thinking of attending and/or participating, please RSVP on Facebook. Can’t wait to see all the amazing costumes people come up with! ^.^
