My university’s Cosmetology Department held their third Cosplay Beauty Contest on Saturday. While the poster below says the contest starts at 2 pm, the show didn’t begin until 4 pm.
Prep time. The students had two hours to get their model ready.
The competition started at 4 pm.
Elsa from Frozen.
Nurse Joker from The Dark Knight. I did this as a Halloween costume a few years back. Though my outfit was much tighter.
Not sure on this one.
I think this is supposed to be from Black Swan
One of the Mad Hatters.
Davy Jones from the Pirates of the Caribbean series.
Another Elsa from Frozen.
My favourite Mad Hatter. He was a bit of a showman too. See the video at the bottom of the page.
Scarecrow from Wizard of Oz.
Queen Seondeok, maybe.
I’m note sure if he’s Jack Sparrow from the Pirates series or Gan Ning from Dynasty Warriors. Looks more like Gan Ning to me.
Mystique. This one was one of my favourite contestants. She really got into the posing, too.
Some kind of fairy princess. All the contestants had a poster of the costumes inspiration but I didn’t get to see all of them.
This one was also one of my favourites. There were two Maleficents. This one was the far better one. Those eyes.
Not quite sure who this is. But that ball she had seemed to be spinning in midair. Very cool effect (see the video).
Silent Hill Nurse. This was the winning entry. She had the walk down, too.
A witch of some sort.
After the competition I had a chance to take photos with some of the entrants. Here are some of my favourite ones.
Not sure if that is hover hand or not.
Now I know exactly where to go for my Halloween costume. Videos below. Pretty sure the music will be muted.
