In one month, Texas Showdown Championships will begin at the Crowne Plaza Galleria. Hundreds of the best players from around the state will compete against each other, players from around the country, and international as well for the right to be crowned the best in popular fighting game titles like Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition 2012, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, and newer games like Killer Instinct. But it won't be all filled with gamers slugging it out. Throughout the weekend attendees will have the pleasure to interact with some of the best cosplayers in Houston.
On Friday and Saturday, SuWan and Domiji from Su&Dom Cosplay will be in attendance for photo ops, selling prints, and autographs. Rumor has it the duo will be in Capcom themed attire both days, but we'll have to wait and see. On Sunday, MarieDoll will be making a return to Texas Showdown. Last year, she arrived dressed as Sakura from Street Fighter, and was even on stage to cheer on ChrisG during his SF4 run. This year, MarieDoll promised to dress in a different outfit for the event, so you should attend to get a first hand look at her.
There may be other cosplayers coming to Texas Showdown, but for now, the girls lined up are sure to brighten up the outlook!
