Season 3 of MYX TV’s “Call to Cosplay” is back and better than ever!!
The groundbreaking original MYX TV’s Call to Cosplay is coming back for another round of exciting cosplay magic this Tuesday March 22 at 8/7 central on Myx Tv. You can also stream the show on MyxTv.com and CONtv starting Wednesday march 23rd. If you’ve never seen the show then this is a good place to start. The show originally pits two teams of contestants against each other to create the best looking cosplay on a runway. The contestants are given a theme, time limit, budget and a mystery element that they need to incorporate into their work. They showcase their costumes in front of a team of super judges who use a point system to determine the winner.

So what’s new to this season Call To Cosplay? For starters a new judge has been added to the fun, Romeo Lacoste who is a social media celebrity and a well renowned tattoo artist who does pieces for other celebrities like Ariana Grande. Romeo will be joining the returning cast members Brook Lee, Marisa Lynch, and season one champion Johnny Junkers.
In the past shows contestants would be picked from the pool of con-goers and big named convention cosplayers who would create costumes based off of manga or anime, however to shake things up the producers of the show will be picking a wider range of contestants that include models, actors, professional costume designers and those who prove to be passionate in the area of cosplay and pop culture. This seasons “free for all” persona will definitely make for some exciting and fun TV.
“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 and unexpected challenges that will delight cosplay fans.”
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. But wait there’s even more Myx TV has also partnered with Wizard World, which produces pop culture conventions across North America. As part of the partnership, "Call to Cosplay" will put on live events at Wizard World Comic Cons in Austin, Chicago, Orlando and Sacramento. Myx TV will also have interactive fan activations in CONtv's booths at all Wizard World Comic Cons around the country. So there’s something to look forward to seeing for those of us who enjoy the convention scene. Tune in this week and I hope this season lives up to the hype. Executive producers of “Call to Cosplay” are George Chung and Miguel Santos for Myx TV.
