I had the pleasure of attending the cosplay contest at The Majestic in Dallas, TX, during Anime Fest last week. It was truly a magnificent cosplay contest held in a really beautiful theater with a house full of eager anime enthusiasts and with guests from Japan.
The guests of Honor from Japan consisted of Fumi Hirano, Toshio Furukawa, Shino Kakinuma, Akemi Takada, Shingo Natsume, Chikashi Kubota, Shuhei Morita, Kazuhiro Miwa, and Ayana Nishino, shows that they were involved with consists of favorites such as Urusei Yatsura, Tokyo Ghoul, My Hero Academia, One-Punch Man, DragonBall Z, and Space Dandy.
There was a special pre-show where guests picked the best cosplay from shows they were involved in. After the Japanese guests awarded cosplayers with a small gift to the winners then the main cosplay contest was able to commence.
