The NEC in Birmingham will host Insomnia60, the biggest gaming festival in the UK, on April 16. In the morning, there will be a Zelda inspired cosplay competition to celebrate the series as a whole, not just the highly successful Breath of the Wild. Cosplayers are invited to dress as any character from the vast history of the series. It may be hard to just pick one character!
Entrants in the competition will take part in an on-stage masquerade which will be judged by professional cosplayers. Photos will be taken and uploaded onto official Nintendo online channels. Moreover, there will be prizes awarded for the best dressed. These include:
- A limited edition copy of Breath of the Wild
- Breath of the Wild amiibo
- A First4Figures Link Breath of the Wild figure
- A copy of The Legend of Zelda: Arts and Artifacts book
- A Legend of the Zelda canvas bag
If you are interested in taking part in this event then you will need to send an email to this address: [email protected] In the subject line, put “Legend of Zelda cosplay” and include your contact details in the main body of the email. Also, include the name of the character you’ll be dressing as. Entries will close at noon on April 12. You don’t have long to choose your character!
Good luck to all who have entered! We look forward to seeing the fantastic pictures.
