Syfy Launching New Cosplay Competition Series ‘Cosplay Melee’

Syfy channel has announced their latest reality competition show, and it’s diving into the world of cosplay head first. Called Cosplay Melee, each episode four cosplayers will compete against each other to make the best cosplay they can — the winner taking home a $10,000 prize. The contestants will be judged by costumer Christian Beckman (who did costumes for The Hunger Games), cosplayer LeeAnna Vamp, and actress Yvette Nicole Brown.

Yvette Nicole Brown will also serve as the show’s host.

This isn’t Syfy’s first foray into Cosplay reality shows, but unlike Heroes of Cosplay, this looks like a show we actually want to watch. Frankly, this is the series we’d been hoping for all along. The network has a trailer up on their website, and it looks pretty solid.

Cosplay Melee premieres March 21st on Syfy.

Trae also wrote and drew the now completed webcomic UnCONventional, and produces the podcasts BS-Free Witchcraft, On This Day With Trae, Stormwood & Associates, and The Nerd & Tie Podcast. This leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”

    Ehhhh forget taking it with a grain of salt, I’ll probably have a few cups on standby. I was optimistic for season 1.5 of HoC and that turned out even WORSE…
