"Cosplay Melee"
Premieres Tuesday, March 21 at 10 PM ET/PT on Syfy
 
          The world’s most innovative cosplayers go head to head each week in Syfy’s new transformation competition series “COSPLAY MELEE” – an epic showdown of creativity, eye popping costumes and one of a kind characters. The hour-long battle is hosted by actress and self-described “super fan girl” Yvette Nicole Brown (“The New Edition Story,” “Community”).
 
         Each week, four world class cosplayers compete to create not only intricate full-body costumes – but fully-formed characters that they must bring to life through their own realistic performance. Guiding and critiquing them are a panel of judges including world class cosplayer LeeAnna Vamp, and A-list costume creator, Christian Beckman (“The Hunger Games,” “TRON: Legacy”). At the end of every episode, the winner will walk away with $10,000 … and the right to claim cosplay supremacy.
