Cosplay Event: 5th TAGCOM Official Cosplay Guidelines from Cosplay.ph

The 5th TAGCOM Cosplay Contests will be held on Sunday, MAY 22, 2011 at Robinsons Midtown Mall Atrium, Ermita, Manila from 10:00 am - 9:00 pm. This cosplay event's admission is free so no need to worry about the entrance fee. Registration begins at 10:00am and closes at 2:00pm. Be early and register asap since there will only be 150 individual cosplayers allowed to participate.

I am sure that many of you are waiting for this event. If there is one thing I personally could have wish is if they would allow individual cosplayers to perform as well and not just do catwalk. Performance for me is important not only in group cosplay but also in the individual level. Anyway, I am sure this would be another cool event from Hobbiworx and Cosplay.ph.

Here is the Cosplay Guidelines which can also be viewed directly at http://www.cosplay.ph/news.php?readmore=1489:

  1. Best Male
  2. Best Female
  3. Best Kid
  4. Best Historical (min 5 contestants to open)
  5. Best Group (min 5 groups to open)
