Otaku House is a retail chain located in Singapore.  They specialize in “Japanese toys, anime collectibles, cosplay products and other nonsensical gifts.”  For all of you cosplayers out there, they have a small selection of cosplay wigs and accessories.  We expect that they will offer more cosplay products as their popularity increases.

For years the internet has welcomed websites that promote cosplayers and their costumes – essentially giving kudos to their craftsmanship skills.  However, we were pleasantly surprised when Otaku House quickly joined the ranks of Cosplay.com and American Cosplay Paradise through their worldwide competition, Cosplay Idol.  This cosplay competition allows individuals to vote for their favorite costumes via a Facebook fan page and craftsmanship is only one of the judging criteria.  Given that the voting is open to the public, photographic composition, physical sexiness, and anime popularity are also highly regarded.

The Cosplay Idol contest is categorized by continent: North America, South America, Europe, and Asia.  The idol winner in each category will receive $500 of cosplay merchandise and the 1st and 2nd runners up receive $300 and $200 of cosplay merchandise.  Don’t worry, there’s still time to submit your photo and garnish enough votes to enter the finals!  The qualifying round ends on July 31, 2011 and the top 5 pictures from every photo album (approximately 200 pictures) will enter the final round of judging.  Please read the official contest rules before submitting your photo entry.

On a final note – I wanted to remind you that Amitie and Janet have submitted their pictures to the North America competition.  Be sure to vote for them and, while you’re there, take a moment to check out some of the other amazing contestants!
