    Save your precious time for something more entertaining.
    Let me talk about the Pros of the show,
    Good concept

    Lets go onto the Cons of the show:
    Pretty much everything and let me go into detail.

    The production of the show is below poor. This show only has about 10 minutes of something to actually watch and the rest is unnecessary. The camera work is everywhere, producers attempted to create tension/drama between the contestants but its not ...

    Different gender judges
    This drama needs different gender judges so there will no favoritism one one side of a gender or maybe get judges from the thing they are trying to make cosplay out of for example if you are cosplaying monster hunter 4 maybe get some of the art designers from monster hunter 4 to judge

    No. Just, absolutely not. Just no.
    As a reviewer, it is up to you to sit down and watch through the entirety of something in order to provide a just and accurate review plied with your own opinion.

    That said, I can say I stayed through all fourty minutes and thrity one seconds of this....'show' from start to finish.

    I can understand it. I really can. You want to have a "game show" of sorts. But...this is just...I ...

    I couldn't make it, I had to skip past the talking heads at the end.
    There's a DJ, but no background music.
    It's like no one watched this after it was done being made.
    Or it's really great, I can't tell!

    The concept is wonderful, and the end result was entertaining.
    It's presented like a bad reality tv show. While also feeling like it is a bad reality tv show. The "set" looks like a rented room, and I wonder if everything was shot in one take.
    Time ...

    Strong concept, execution needs improvement.
    I love this concept! The time and material limits and the sponsored property really make for an interesting game! I loved seeing how the costumes turned out in the end. I think it's awesome to watch cosplayers use different techniques trying to meet their goals within the constraints. The required materials are a nice touch, too. For future episodes, I hope they use better microphones. There ...

    This just doesn't work for me.
    I wanted to like this show. I like seeing skilled people create something out of nothing. But there's so many wrongs on this show. It's a good idea, but executed very poorly. Clearly, it's on a tight budget, but come on.

    First of all, the sound is all over the place. I tried watching it on my TV and I had to turn it up really loud to hear what people are saying because they're not holding the ...

    Good concept, but too dry.
    Was interested because it concept was great. Having a contest between two people/team to make their own cosplay.

    Couldn't get through even the first episode without skipping. I have tried. But it was way too dry. The film looked very low budget and all over the place.

  • such a shame...........
    its such a shame that this is so terrible.

    its a rushed show with terrible judging/ presenting and clearly no budget :/ it makes the cosplay community look like children in a craft store

    they are trying to go for a project runway vibe, but with poor materials and lack of time and skill all we are left with trash.

  • Underwhelming at best.
    I looked this series up after seeing it mentioned in the comments of a youtube video. I'm a cosplayer, myself, currently working on something really tedious, so I wanted to put something on as background noise to keep me focused while I work.

    I watched all six episodes of this, for some reason.

    The concept is simple: take a couple of cosplayers, give them a challenge, throw them a curveball ...

  • Entertaining but needs more polish
    This review is basically a mirror of what xMadScientistx wrote, which I definitely feel strongly about.

    The concept is strong and fun - a show about cosplay design and execution? Why isn't this the con-goers dream show? Well, not quite when there is no polish or excitement. The hosts are a bit subdued at times, they should be looser and more interested like the judges are (most of the time). ...
