*NEW* Cosplay Lip Sync Battle

Post by Demarion » Fri Feb 03, 2017 11:03 pm

I am happy to announce that this year at Anime Boston 2017, we have a wonderful NEW cosplay game. Cosplay Lip Sync battle!

16 cosplayers compete against each other in one-on-one lip sync rounds until a single winner is chosen by audience applause & enthusiasm. Do you have what it takes to make the crowd go crazy? Come live your vocal idol dreams without having to sing a note!

Here are a few things to keep in mind while applying!
  • We encourage the use of well known songs.
  • Use songs that would make sense to your character.
:arrow: A reminder: Anime Boston is an anime convention that is part of the New England Anime Society (NEAS). As such, we can only accept applications from characters that originally hail from a japanese created media. That means we cannot accept anything from Batman, Stephen Universe, Avatar, Overwatch, etc. This is not my rule, but it is a very important rule that has consequences for the convention itself if I break it. I will not bend on this one thing.
You can apply here: http://www.animeboston.com/cosplayhq/

The deadline is Feb 28th for all applications!

Oh! Almost forgot, My name is Dema or Mama Natsu and I will be the Coordinator of this event! If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask! :D

This sounds like fun, too bad 90% of my cosplays fall outside the strict interpretation of what constitutes anime. (Stares intently at RWBY). Good luck with this! :D

Oh I thought this would involve acting a small scene from the dubbed version of the show or game our character was from but this is cool too.

That moment it took you like a week to change your song line up over 20 times. Haha. So excited for this. Hopefully I get in!

We are hoping this will be a Saturday event. Unfortunately, as for the actual schedule, we will not know what time or day it will actually fall on until the schedule has been posted live!

Regardless, we hope that people will apply anyways just incase. :)

Hey, so my friend and I thought about entering together as a pair. I wasn't sure if that was possible since it said "1 vs 1" but we do have a really awesome list of songs that would be funny and entertaining. Just figured I'd ask. Hope to hear back soon so we can get our application in! Thanks!

Unfortunately, I have no straight answer to this right now. I am not apposed to the idea. As applications are coming to a close on the 28th, I would not hurt for you two to apply and mention that you guys would like to be paired up "if possible." Please do keep in mind that it may not happen.

When you wanted to do this because you're are cosplaying as CHIP SKYLARK and you know people would love it but there's two problems!

1.) I missed the deadline to enter
2.) AB has a very annoying rule where all the shows and stuff can only have Japanese cartoons and stuff....no American cartoons. LAME!


BUT HEY! That won't stop me from lip singing anyways in the halls!
Catch me and my rival (Skip Sparkypants) in the halls of AB on Friday, singing to Shiny Teeth & Me and other HIT SONGS by Chip!

Having gone to the Lip Sync Battle today, I really enjoyed it, except for one small issue I had. The Kakashi contestant. They did a good job, but I felt it was a little unfair to have a character without their mouth showing doing a battle where lip movement is the name of the game. I'd love for this game to come back next year, but I'm wondering if maybe there should be a rule against characters who's mouth's aren't visible.

I feel people when they say my mouth wasn't visable, but I knew all the songs and could lip sync to them if I had my mask off. Since the games are over I will mention the reason I was chosen to participate was because I had a mask. It made the routine comedic. I'm glad I got to participate, and though I may have my anti-fans, I am still very happy I made it to the end. I also want to shout out to the 3 people sitting behind my mother and friend. They were screaming at the top of their lungs. Thanks guys!

I was Haruhi for the battle and it was one of the most fun times I've had in my life. I'm hoping that we'll be able to see some video of the battle at some point, since I want to show all my friends :) I had a blast and I encourage everyone to apply next year.
