Sexpo is pleased to announce adult stars, gamers and cosplayers Lucie Bee and Alana Evans will host and judge the inaugural Sydney Sexpo Cosplay Competition 2016
(MELBOURNE, AU) -- As announced on February 19, Sexpo™ - the world's No. 1 consumer exhibition for the adult industry, has launched the inaugural sexy cosplay competition to be held in Sydney, from May 12-15, 2016.
Sexpo™ can now announce that Lucie Bee and Alana Evans will host and judge the competition.
Her reputation may precede her, but Lucie Bee, Australia's Goddess of geek, promises not to bite too hard at Sexpo Sydney 2016.
Celebrating five decadent years in the Australian and International adult and cosplay industries (and preparing for several more...), Lucie is a pocket rocket with a long resume. Her growing reputation as one of the industry's most outspoken entertainers and advocates, Lucie has appeared on the Project and the Kyle and Jackie O Show, as well as being a featured guest on several Australian and International radio shows, documentaries, podcasts and quoted regularly in Australian newspapers, magazines and online. Lucie's most recent appearance was on the ABC in December as part of Tom Tilley's "Australians on Porn" panel discussion.
One of Alana's biggest passions is video games and cosplay. She writes the Stoned Gamer for High Times Magazine and also owns and maintains Pwnedbygirls.com , a video game website with game reviews, live video game streams, and cosplay shoots! She was recently featured in the March 2015 issue of Hustler Magazine in her cosplay glory!
Gaming website www.kotaku.com.au commented that this is the largest cash prize ($2,000) known to date to be offered for an Aussie cosplay competition. With similar events geared towards the family friendly cosplay market, Sexpo™ aims to capture those cosplayers who like a spicier angle to their cosplay enthusiasm.
Sexpo™ Event Manager, Bentleigh Gibson says, "collaborating with Lucie and Alana with this competition is a great endorsement for the event. We know that both women are passionate advocates of cosplay, so their signing to the event was a logical choice. We are thrilled they have both agreed to attend and partake."
In addition to the competition, Sexpo™ will create a cosplay-friendly area within the event, specifically for those cosplayers who want to socialize and mingle with other enthusiasts.
Gibson says "Sexpo™ recognizes that cosplay is an important cultural element which will only grow in popularity and we want to embrace the cosplay culture, and establish it as a permanent feature in all future SEXPOs™. We expect this to develop into an international competition, with our UK and South Africa shows already embracing the idea."

The next Sexpo™ will be held from Thursday, May 12 to Sunday, May 15 at the Royal Hall of Industries & Hordern Pavilion, Moore Park. More than 35,000 people are expected to attend.

In spite of its catchy name, Sexpo™ is not just an exhibition about sex...it is about health, sexuality and adult lifestyles.
Exhibitor stands include (but are not limited to) aviation, wine tasting, marine sports, electronic home entertainment systems, holiday resorts, spa pools, hair and make-up artists, physical fitness equipment, chiropractors, photographers and more. And, of course, the event still promotes the kind of products and services that one would expect to find at an exhibition called Sexpo™!
Apart from the exhibitor stands, there is a stage with rock concert lighting and audio which is the backdrop for a variety of entertaining performances. Popular international celebrities and stage acts include the world famous 'penile artist' Pricasso (who uses his penis as a brush to paint surprisingly good portraits - really!), as well as numerous local and international adult stars. There will also be hilarious crowd participation shows, fashion parades, pole-dancing classes and free giveaways.
Since its debut in 1996, Sexpo™ has attracted over two and a half million visitors.
Sexpo was founded in Australia in 1996 originally as a forum to allow women and couples to experience all the adult industry has to offer, in a safe and friendly environment. In 2006 the first international licensing agreement was signed and the inaugural South African event held in 2007.
An instant success, these events produced several million Australian dollars of income over 3 years before being on-sold by the South African licensee for more than AU$2,000,000 in 2010. It continues to expand under the new licensee.
Sexpo was exported to London in 2015 to rave reviews.
We specifically invite people who have never been to Sexpo, thinking it is just a big "sex show," to come along and be pleasantly surprised by the fun and relaxed atmosphere.
