Cosplayer Rebeckalah is 24 years old and has been cosplaying since 2007. She crafts all of her own costumes and recently started working with props, her first being the Traflagar Law Sword from One Piece. Here’s her take on the costume contest at Tokyo in Tulsa:
Being in the contest was a lot of fun. Of course we had to sign up early as the competition was said to be capped at 100 entrants. It was incredible how quickly the line filled just to sign up! I’m glad we were able to get there in time.
The pre-judging was very well organized and went quickly; I believe it’s because Mythos was in charge. They were very thorough with checking the amount of detail in everyone’s costumes. It was overall a pleasant experience talking with them about how I made my costume and the amount of work I put into it. After they were done with pre-judging we were allowed to roam the con until it was time to come back and line up for the main event.
