Pair Cosplay Category (Main Event):
For the highlight of the event, a pair was chosen to represent Zamboanga Peninsula during the World Cosplay Summit Philippines Qualifiers. Winners of this event will be sent to Nagoya, Japan as the Philippine Representatives for the WCS. Two pairs competed with their skills in costume and props making as well as their ability to portray their character on stage.
These pairs followed the general guidelines throughout the whole competition.

The first part of the competition was the craftsmanship judging. The pairs were asked questions on how they came up with the idea on who to portray, how they made their costumes and props and why they chose these characters to compete with;

The first pair is TEAM SOS who portrayed characters from the game Dynasty Warriors:

The second pair is ANIMAL XING who portrayed characters from another game Monster Hunter:

The winners and will advance to the WCS PH final round is TEAM SOS!
