Calling all cosplayers! Millarworld is
on the lookout for the world’s most convincing Chrononauts, handsome Hucks and
kick-ass Kick Ass costumes.
With a $500 prize and a full-page photo
in upcoming sci-fi spectacular Jupiter’s Legacy 2, the stakes are high for
talented cosplayers who mimic their favourite Millarworld characters. If you
already own Hit Girl nunchucks or a homemade lycra time-travelling suit (who
doesn’t?) it’s time to dust them off and get applying.
Entering is simple.Create the costume,
strike a pose and take a photo. Entrants can submit their photos via the
Millarworld forums at www.millarworld.tv
with their name and a short bio.
The contest will run from February
until May and the winner, along with 24 runners up, will have their photos
published in the back of much-anticipated comic Jupiter’s Legacy 2, released in
Mark Millar said: “I love cosplay.
Number one, it’s fun, which should be the fundamental thing the business is
about. Number two, I love the fact it’s brought so many people into comics who
would otherwise not have been into the convention scene in particular. I know
people have cosplayed for two years before they picked up their first book and
now they’re hooked. That can only be a good thing. But I also love the craft of
it, the effort cosplayers go to and how these pictures have become an art-form
"There’s something just really
exciting about being in print and Frank Quitely and I are opening up the back
pages to the Jupiter’s Legacy sequel this June for a special, extended edition
where the best 25 cosplay pictures posted in the Millarworld thread get
published in the book and the very best, the one that just blows us away, gets
$500. This is something I’d love to do every Spring, much like our Millarworld
New Talent competition every September.”
