THANK YOU TO OUR AMAZING JUDGES

Outside of cosplay, Sophia loves the ocean, hiking, adventure, as well as spending time with her talented partner Chris Ting, who will also be our M.C. for the weekend.
Fiona brings to our event years of costume & judging experience, such as: Oamaru’s Victorian Fete’s Best Dressed 2018
Miss Rotorua for 3 years & NZ Beard & Moustache Contest 2019.
