SEXPO®, the Health, Sexuality & Lifestyle Expos announce its judging panel for the Brisbane version of its Sexy Cosplay Competition.
SEXPO®, the Health, Sexuality & Lifestyle Expo, is the world’s premier event for the adult industry.
Based on the success that was Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, Brisbane’s event will see an expanded competition based on feedback from the cosplay industry and previous participants.
The competition, being hosted by Australia’s favourite geek goddess, Lucie Bee, will also feature guest judging from Japanese AV model, adult star and cosplay enthusiast, Marica Hase, Brisbane’s very own full time cosplayer and ero model Katyuska Moonfox, and of course Perth’s SEXPO® Sexy Cosplay winner, Sarena Bailey.
Still on offer will be Australia’s largest cash prize, a cool $1000 for the winner, and an all-expenses paid trip to the next Australian SEXPO® Sexy Cosplay Competition. The heat winners will receive $500 cash, and every heat contestant will walk away with a $250 SEXPO® showbag.
Original architect behind the competition and SEXPO® Event Director Bentleigh Gibson said “…the judging panel represents a cross-section of the cosplaying and pop-culture community. We are delighted to have such well credentialed guest judges join us in Brisbane.”
SEXPO® Brisbane 2017 runs from August 4 to August 6 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
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 over 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.
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.
SEXPO® was exported to London in 2015 to rave reviews
