Japan Matsuri 2017

Cosplay Contest

Cosplay Contest

As every year, the Japan Matsuri will offer the cosplay contest!

Cosplayers, get ready, because this year you will once again have the chance to perform and challenge the others to win amazing prizes.

What is the Cosplay?

The Cosplay is a practice that consists in wearing a costume that represents a character recognizable in a determinate context, interpreting the way he acts. Since this practice was born in Japan, the character represented by a cosplayer is often chosen in the Japanese manga and anime world. However, it is not rare that the choice is extended to the tokusatsu, video games, bands, RPGs, movies, TV series, books of every genre and even advertisement.

This term is a contraction of “costume” and “play”, words that describe accurately the hobby of having fun dressing as one’s favourite character. Besides dressing up on the occasion of public events like the anime conventions, it is not unusual for Japanese teenagers to gather together with friends who share the same passion.

Prizmatec was created for fun in 2012 by Riccardo and Gaetano, who decided to test them selves with their first creation, the War Machine armor from Iron Man 2, after having seen their first Cosplay Contest.
Since then, this hobby became a significant part of their lives and with the help of their family, Prizmatec started to create amazing armors and to perform on stage, winning innumerable Cosplay Contests.

The materials they prefer to use for their creations are mostly cardboard and mats, as they guarantee a full and smooth motion even for very voluminous armors, an easier processing and an outstanding result!

The production of a single armor takes between 3 and 6 months, while its improvement it’s a matter of time and it can even reach 2 years, that is how long it took to build one of their most fabulous creations, Gundam!

In other words, come and have a look at Prizmatec’s armors, because they are numerous, extraordinary, and they’ll leave you speechless!

Prizmatec will also offer perform in a show and a small conference about the origins of cosplay at 4:30 p.m. of Saturday, the 8th of April.
