In order to celebrate the partnership with our new friends from Crypton Future Media, the Community’s Choice contest in Cosplay Gen #5 will have a special theme: Vocaloid. As the title implies, we will accept in the contest only Vocaloid cosplays, so if you have a good photo of you in Hatsune Miku, Megurine Luka, Kamui Gakupo, Kaito or any other Vocaloid, take your chance and submit it!
This Community’s Choice edition is sponsored by Crypton Future Media and made in collaboration with Mikubook.com – the official community for Hatsune Miku, which will provide some exciting prizes for the winners of the first, second and third place!
Also, the winner – the cosplayer who gets the most “FAVEs” on Mikubook.com – will be offered a special feature in Cosplay Gen #5.
