SUNNYCON ANIME EXPO
JUNE 16TH - 18TH 2017 COUNTDOWN:
Cosplay is one of the biggest parts of SunnyCon Anime Expo and we love it!
Over the weekend of SunnyCon Anime Expo we will be holding many cosplay events and activities. Once again we will see the return of the big cash prize masquerade, entries to be open later in the year. We will also see a return of the talent contest which will be bigger for 2017. The cosplay repair station will be back and there is much more in the pipeline for cosplayers of all skill and ability.
SUNNYCON ANIME EXPO 2017
Here we are 2017's competition is now live and we are ready to take on applications for cosplayers for this year.
Unlike in previous years we had 2 sections of cosplay and non competitive for 2017 we have taken on feedback from cosplayers and attendees alike and we are introducing a new Rising Stars division. There will be a separation of masters and rising stars because in previous events some cosplayers have felt intimidated by the more experienced veterans of cosplay and Rising stars will give beginners and mid level cosplayers the chance to compete where as masters will be for the more complex cosplays.
The prizes will once again be some of the biggest in the world with a £2000 cash prize pot for competitors with a £1000 grand prize for 1st place in the Masters and £250 for 1st place in the Rising Stars.
Below are links to the rules of each division. Please read these first before submitting an entry form! You will be contacted once your place is confirmed but be warned there are limited spots once they are full you will be placed on a waiting list. For all questions please e-mail our cosplay co-ordinator firstname.lastname@example.org

WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT
LARGEST GATHERING OF PEOPLE DRESSED AS POKÉMON CHARACTERS
For Sunny Expo 2017 we will be attempting to break a world record for Largest gathering of people dressed as Pokémon characters.
The largest gathering record stands at 250 however we believe we can raise that number and break the record at Sunny Expo 2017. Planning is underway but all we need is attendees to come dressed as characters from the Game/Anime and it can be any character/ Pokemon you like.
We currently have a Facebook group set up head over there to see who else will be going and read up on the guidelines we have from Guinness World Records.
