As 2014 comes to a close, so too does the year of the Bat – not the lunar year, but the 75th anniversary of Batman. From special postage stamps to cable cars, it’s been a pretty special year for fans of the Caped Crusader, and now the festivities will end with a bang (bif, pow, etc) with a special Batman & Gotham City Cos-play Competition.
You can take part in this grand finale that’s co-organised by Movie Mania: All you need is to come with your own Batman-related costume (even commissioned or store-bought ones, but these will suffer a score penalty) and you can also have a planned skit to go with it. It can be any Batman-related costume, from Adam West to Batman Noir, so go batty! You can register here, and terms and conditions are here.
Batman & Gotham City Cos-play Competition
Dec 7, 2014, 12.30pm to 3pm
The first-placed cosplayer will win S$1,000, while second- and third-placed winners will get S$500 and S$300 respectively. All contestants will receive a DC Comics goodie bag from DC Comics Super Hero Store woth S$100 each.
As an added bonus, Batman and Catwoman will be available for meet and greets from Dec 4 to 9 at 1pm, 4pm and 7pm. Sorry if this ended a little abruptly … I’m a little taken with the idea of some Batman Noir cosplay.
