Following a hugely successful SEXPO® Melbourne in 2016, SEXPO® has announced the continuation of its SEXPO® Sexy Cosplay Competition for Perth 2017.

The SEXPO® Sexy Cosplay competition asks entrants to represent what they personally define as sexy; and are judged on criteria based on creativity, audience interaction, and their conveyance of what sexy is.

A unique cosplay competition like no other, the competition encourages contestants to break boundaries that they traditionally couldn’t at other conventions and embrace creativity and sexuality through cosplay.

SEXPO® announces SEXPO® sexy cosplay will make its debut in the Wild West in 2017

At SEXPO® Melbourne 2016, all three Cosplay heats were filled well in advance of closing date. The final was a hard fought competition between three very different cosplays with the winner presenting an elaborate cosplay of a Twi’lek.

SEXPO® Melbourne 2016 winner Sharné McMurray (pictured above) said “…the SEXPO® Melbourne Cosplay competition was an incredibly fun and rewarding experience! It was well organized, professional and everyone involved was fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone who loves dressing up, having fun and embracing their sexuality!”

For SEXPO® Perth 2017, there will be two heats on Saturday May 6, with the final to be held on Sunday May 7 at 4:15 PM. Up for grabs is a $1,500 grand prize for the winner, one of the largest cash prizes offered for a cosplay competition in Australia.

In addition, the winner also receives an all-expenses paid trip to the next SEXPO® Sexy Cosplay Competition. Each heat finalist also receives $500 cash and each heat contestant will receive an exclusive SEXPO showbag worth $250.

SEXPO® Event Manager Bentleigh Gibson said “… we are so proud to give such a passionate community a platform to showcase their amazing talents. Our aim is to bring cosplay to all corners of Australia following the success of the Melbourne and Sydney competitions.”

Background Information about SEXPO®

In spite of its catchy name, SEXPO® is not just an exhibition about sex… it is about health, sexuality and adult lifestyles.

Exhibitor stands include (but are not limited to) aviation, wine tasting, marine sports, electronic home entertainment systems, holiday resorts, spa pools, hair and make-up artists, physical fitness equipment, chiropractors, photographers and more. And, of course, the event still promotes the kind of products and services that one would expect to find at an exhibition called SEXPO®.

Apart from the exhibitor stands, there is a stage with rock concert lighting and audio which is the backdrop for a variety of entertaining performances. Popular international celebrities and stage acts include the world famous ‘penile artist’ Pricasso (who uses his penis as a brush to paint surprisingly good portraits – really!), as well as numerous local and international adult stars. There will also be hilarious crowd participation shows, fashion parades, pole-dancing classes and free giveaways.

Since its debut in 1996, SEXPO® has attracted nearly three million visitors.

SEXPO® was founded in Australia in 1996 originally as a forum to allow women and couples to experience all the adult industry has to offer, in a safe and friendly environment. In 2006 the first international licensing agreement was signed and the inaugural South African event held in 2007.

An instant success, these events produced several million Australian dollars of income over 3 years before being on-sold by the South African licensee for more than AU$2,000,000 in 2010. It continues to expand under the new licensee.

SEXPO® was exported to London in 2015 to rave reviews.

We specifically invite people who have never been to SEXPO®, thinking it is just a big “sex show”, to come along and be pleasantly surprised by the fun and relaxed atmosphere.
