Back and bigger than ever, Myx TV's original design competition show "Call to Cosplay" is readying for Season Three. Observe contestants stress themselves creating artistic costumes within unique themes and under strict time limits. The show will premiere on Tuesday, March 22nd at 8pm/7pm Central on MyxTV.com, and CONtv, the digital streaming network, on Wednesday, March 23rd.
Progressing and building on its past success, this season producers are boosting the cosplay formula with a few new elements that will heighten the stakes and keep fans guessing until the climax of every competition.
"The fan reaction to 'Call to Cosplay' has been overwhelming,' said Miguel Santos, general manager of Myx TV. "This season we're going bigger in every way to amp up the energy and create even more creative unexpected challenges that will delight cosplay fans."
In previous seasons, "Call to Cosplay" featured only cosplayers and con-goers as contestants, which limited the costumes that were created to familiar superheroes and anime characters. This season, producers are opening up the competition to ALL costume designers including professional costumers, models, actors and character impersonators who are passionate about creating costumes, widening the imaginative designs that the contestants will produce.
For the first time ever, this season, producers are escaping the confines of a soundstage and taking viewers on a trip along the West Coast of the United States. Each episode’s competition has been inspired by the city where it was shot. Themes include “Supervillains,” filmed at the Gothic Revival-styled Park Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles and “Rock ‘n’ Roll Apocalypse,” filmed at the famed Arctic Club in Seattle, originally a decadent social institution for those who struck it rich in the Yukon gold rush.
Even the judges are getting an addition this season with Romeo Lacoste, a social media star and celebrity tattoo artist (with clients like Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande). He will be joining the returning judges former Miss Universe, Brooke Lee; author and "New Dress a Day" fashion blogger Marisa Lynch; and beloved cosplayer "Call to Cosplay" season one grand prize champion Johnny Junkers.
