Sexpo™ Cosplay Gives Sexy Cosplayers a New Home
Sexpo™ Australia fills an important void in the Cosplay scene by launching the inaugural Sydney Sexpo™ Cosplay Competition 2016
Sexpo™, the world's No. 1 consumer exhibition for the adult industry, has launched the inaugural sexy cosplay competition to be held in Sydney, from May 12-15, 2016.
Incorporated into the overall Sexpo™ event, Sexpo™ Cosplay aims to give a home to cosplayers who have previously been unwelcome at other similar events, due to the perceived risqué nature of their outfits.
The competition will consist of four heats of ten competitors, with one winner per heat selected. The winner of each heat will be invited back for the Grand Final, which will be held at 4:00 PM on Sunday, May 15 on the Sexpo™ main stage. With a cool $2,000 up for grabs, plus an all-expenses paid trip to the next Australian Sexpo™, the competition has already generated substantial interest from the cosplay community.
Gaming website www.kotaku.com.au commented that this is the largest cash prize known to date to be offered for an Aussie cosplay competition. With similar events geared towards the family friendly cosplay market, Sexpo™ aims to capture those cosplayers who like a spicier angle to their cosplay enthusiasm.
Sexpo™ Event Manager and architect behind the competition, Bentleigh Gibson says, "Enthusiasts of all types of cosplay should have a safe and comfortable avenue through which they can explore and promote their passion. Sexpo™ is simply providing this channel, and at the same time rewarding those who go that extra mile with their choice of outfit."
In addition to the competition, Sexpo™ will create a cosplay-friendly area within the event, specifically for those cosplayers who want to socialize and mingle with other enthusiasts.
Interested applicants should go to http://www.sexpo.com.au/attractions/sexpocosplay for more information about the competition and how to enter.
The next Sexpo™ will be held from Thursday, May 12 to Sunday, May 15 at the Royal Hall of Industries & Hordern Pavilion, Moore Park. More than 35,000 people are expected to attend.

Background Information about Sexpo™:
In spite of its catchy name, Sexpo™ is not just an exhibition about sex...it is about health, sexuality and adult lifestyles.
Exhibitor stands include (but are not limited to) aviation, wine tasting, marine sports, electronic home entertainment systems, holiday resorts, spa pools, hair and make-up artists, physical fitness equipment, chiropractors, photographers and more. And, of course, the event still promotes the kind of products and services that one would expect to find at an exhibition called Sexpo™!
Apart from the exhibitor stands, there is a stage with rock concert lighting and audio which is the backdrop for a variety of entertaining performances. Popular international celebrities and stage acts include the world famous 'penile artist' Pricasso (who uses his penis as a brush to paint surprisingly good portraits - really!), as well as numerous local and international adult stars. There will also be hilarious crowd participation shows, fashion parades, pole-dancing classes and free giveaways.
Since its debut in 1996, Sexpo™ has attracted over two and a half million visitors.
An instant success, these events produced several million Australian dollars of income over 3 years before being on-sold by the South African licensee for more than Au$2,000,000 in 2010. It continues to expand under the new licensee.
We specifically invite people who have never been to Sexpo, thinking it is just a big "sex show," to come along and be pleasantly surprised by the fun and relaxed atmosphere.
