Batman 75th Anniversary: Suit Up for the Batman and Gotham City Cosplay Competition!

2014 has been a year-long celebration for Batman's 75th Anniversary, with fans of the Dark Knight and the general public enjoying a list of geeky activities coordinated by Pacific Licensing Studio (PLS) together with Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) and DC Entertainment.

Some of these events include a DC Superheroes stamp and memorabilia exhibition at the Singapore Philatelic Museum (the first in Asia), the broadcast of animated series "Beware the Batman" on Toonami (StarHub Channel 315), Sentosa cable cars decorated with DC comic superhero flair, special postage stamp releases by SingPost, and exclusive Batman75 apparel and other collectibles at the DC Stores.

To wrap up the birthday bash, PLS is working with Movie Mania to host a Batman and Gotham City Cosplay Competition which will be held at Takashimaya Square (B2), 12:30 PM to 3 PM on 7th December (Sunday)!

Contestants will go through 2 rounds during the competition. In the first round, the contestants will try to win the judges over with their costumes and onstage character-impersonation before moving on to the second round, which will be based on voting by the audience.

For the selected winners, there's kaching-kaching... ca$$$h to be won!
First Prize: S$1,000 cash prize
Second Prize: S$500 cash prize
Third Prize: S$300 cash prize

All participants will also receive a Certificate of Participation and a goodie bag (worth S$100) each, containing exclusive items sponsored by DC Comics Super Heroes Store.

So for those eager to show off their masked identities on stage, sign up for the contest and start preparing for your costumes now! (But not before understanding the mechanics and terms of the competition posted here.)

Red Dot Diva has a few of her cosplay friends who has already signed up for the competition and eager to go all Gotham-y that weekend. She wonders if any one would cosplay as 1960's Catwoman à la Julie Newmar. Mmmeeowwrrr! That would probably wreck Takashimaya as if all hell has broken loose in Arkham Asylum!

To drum up some excitement for the cosplay competition, Batman and Catwoman will be meeting their fans from 4th to 9th December at 1 PM, 4 PM and 7 PM! Now, that's another selfie photo opportunity not to be missed!

See you at Takashimaya on 7th December!
