Myx TV’s “Call to Cosplay” Back in Action for Season Three

Returning Fan-Favorite Will Also Air on Digital Streaming Network CONtv
and Welcomes New Judge Romeo Lacoste

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Myx TV original design competition show “Call to Cosplay” is back
and bigger than ever for season three. “Call to Cosplay” challenges
contestants to put together the best looking “cosplay” (costume play)
falling under unique themes. Season three of “Call to Cosplay” will
premiere on Myx TV on Tuesday, March 22, at 8:00 PM/7:00 PM, Central and
on and CONtv, the digital streaming network, on Wednesday,
March 23.

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 final moments 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
and unexpected challenges that will delight cosplay fans.”

In past seasons, “Call to Cosplay” solely featured cosplayer and
con-goer contestants, which resulted in cosplays featuring a “who’s who”
of top manga, anime and superhero characters in every episode. 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 inspired by the
entirety of pop culture; nothing is off limits!

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.

Also new this season is the addition of Romeo Lacoste to the roster of
judges. Romeo is a social media star as well as a celebrity tattoo
artist, with clients like Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. He’ll be
joined by returning judges former Miss Universe, Brook Lee; author and
“New Dress a Day” fashion blogger Marisa Lynch; and beloved cosplayer
and “Call to Cosplay” season one grand prize champion Johnny Junkers.

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

Executive producers of “Call to Cosplay” are George Chung and Miguel
Santos for Myx TV.
