HeroFest Recap – 9th October 2020

Finally, Cosplay!

One thing especially celebrated at the HeroFest is Cosplay! This year is no exception and it's finally time! The Cosplay Contests, for which we have been waiting for ages, will start this weekend.

We have already invited our jury for the evening. Four well-known Swiss cosplayers, Ameelah, Nocsys, Tania de Andrade and Syf, entered our stage and amazed us with their performance.

Before the chosen ones judge the participants of the Cosplay Contest on Saturday, we put them to the test ourselves with the Cosplay Challenge!

First the Cosplay Judges had to show us their favourite games: Jack Sparrow showed us his favourite pirate game and Hippolyta, the Amazon Queen, showed us how to stay fit with a videogame.

Also part of the challenge: Voice-Acting! As cosplayers, our guests always slip into different roles. By re-enacting scenes from games and films, they were allowed to show what they were really capable of.

Crafting was also one of the tasks: In only 20 minutes our jury, divided into teams of 2, had to produce prop weapons from scrap. A laser blaster and a dragon horn sword were the results. Unbelievable to see the talents of cosplayers demonstrated in realtime!

We are already looking forward to the weekend, because there will be even more cosplay! The Swisscom Hero League finals will also start on Saturday. Everyone is served and it’s getting hot. Tomorrow, 13.00 o'clock, on Twitch!
