‘Cosplay Melee’ Costuming Competition Series Announced

The extreme costuming community will be in the spotlight on Syfy’s new reality competition series Cosplay Melee, premiering on the network in March.

In Cosplay Melee, the world’s most innovative cosplayers will face off each week for a chance to win a $10,000 cash prize.

In each episode, host Yvette Nicole Brown (Community) will introduce four world-class cosplayers, who will compete to create not only intricate full-body costumes but fully formed original characters that they must bring to life through their own realistic performance.

Guiding and critiquing the competing contestants will be a panel of judges, including renowned cosplayer LeeAnna Vamp and A-list costume creator Christian Beckman (The Hunger Games).

“Cosplay is passion, artistry, engineering and theater all rolled into one,” Syfy senior vice president Heather Olander said in a statement. “At the intersection of the maker world and fandom, the incredible artists of Cosplay Melee will blow your minds with their transformational creations.”

Cosplay Melee will premiere on Syfy on March 21.
