Hosted by: World Cosplay Summit Australia
Date/time: 13th July 2019, Saturday 2:30pm-3:00pm
Location: SMASH! Sydney Manga & Anime Show – Main stage

The Lip-sync Extravaganza will be an half an hour event hosted at the main stage by The judges for the event will be three Australian World Cosplay Summit alumni.

Each cosplayer (or small group) will be allowed 30 seconds to one minute to go onstage and perform. The focus of this event is to promote cosplayers to be onstage and support them with a positive environment to build confidence. After all cosplayers have gone onstage there will be a big group photo where they will get to pose. The judges will discuss and give out awards accordingly.

Throw glitter on your costume and strut your stuff, The World Cosplay Summit presents the Lip sync Extravaganza!


It’s an opportunity for cosplayers to show off their skills onstage- you can step up onstage and dance, spin around in your fabulous costumes, interact with the audience and of course, lip sync if you wish! Bring the ‘play’ back into cosplay and have some fun onstage as your favourite character. Drag your friends along, be as over dramatic as possible in one minute and you’ll have the chance to win some fabulous prizes!
