This will make way for the big one; the NEO Cosplay Idol Tournament: The Expo Face Off, where the 12 most popular cosplayers will be featured in 'We ♥ Cosplay', a 48-page book that will be given away free with the very special 100th issue of NEO Magazine.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply get your photo taken at the NEO Cosplay Idol stand during the London MCM Expo (25-27 May) - every photo taken will be automatically entered in the tournament, while prints can be purchased instantly at the event for £8.99.

All entrants will appear online in a face-off style battle similar to the Pre-Expo Tournament. The NEO nation will then have one week to vote for their favourite cosplayers. The most popular Cosplay Idol will also be awarded with a laptop and goody bag while 11 runners-up will received a goody bag - all 12 will feature in 'We ♥ Cosplay'.

So what are you waiting for, get your costumes ready and visit the NEO Cosplay Idol stand at the MCM Expo. You might just become the next big cosplay star!
