Eurogamer Expo 2013 Cosplay competition excites

The time has come again for gamers to congregate in London to see what the gaming industry has planned; yes we can only be talking about Eurogamer Expo 2013. The event seems to get better each year, but we have a feeling this could be the best one in years, which might have something to do with the PS4 and the Xbox One.

When you go to Expos they can often be a little on the boring side, but this is not the case when you mix the public and games, because that means we get to see some fans show their appreciation for a much loved game.

The way they do this is Cosplay, which is when someone dresses up as a character from a game. We have seen this at so many gaming events, but tomorrow’s event is a little different because there is a Eurogamer Expo 2013 Cosplay competition, although you had to enter in order to compete. This means if you have not done so by now then chances are it is too late.

Seeing people dressed up is fun and exciting at the same time, and before you moan, it is done tastefully, unlike booth babes, which as you may know have been banned this year. The reason for this is because they work for a game developer or publisher and so should be able to answer questions, but we all know it is just to get men excited and bring them over to a booth. We can see the good and bad thing with this, and so we will sit on the fence with this argument.

As Cosplay becomes more popular organizers of the Eurogamer Expo realized this and instead of offering people a prize for the best costume, things will be different this year. For 2013 there will be a stage where those of you entering the Cosplay competition will take to the stage, which does make it more epic. There are still prizes to be won, but you will need to work a little harder to get the crowd and judges on your side.

All the rules of the competition can be seen on the Eurogamer Expos website. To help find your way around we have the floor plan for you.
