Africa Cancer Foundation has been nominated by Lupita Nyong’o to partner with Omaze and Star Wars:The Force Awakens to promote the prevention of cancer and to provide holistic solutions for people affected by cancer in Africa. The organization is the ONLY charity organization nominated from Kenya, and Africa as a whole to be officially involved in this entire exciting process, again, Kenya in the spotlight 🙂
What does this have to do with you here in Kenya?
Well, you have a chance to meet Lupita Nyong’o and the rest of the Star Wars:The Force Awakens cast and attend the premiere in London or Los Angeles! By donating $10 (keeping in mind exchange rate when converting to KSHS.) or more, you stand a chance at winning 4 tickets to the Red Carpet Premiere of Star Wars:The Force Awakens at Los Angeles or London. That’s 1 ticket for you, and 3 more for your pals (especially the really good ones, the ones who worship you and all 😉 )
Donations are to be done directly to Omaze, and the funds will later on trickle down to the respective organizations nominated by the different cast members. Details on how and where to donate below:

MJX 2017 VOLUME 2 | Sign Up for the Cosplay Showcase!
ABOUT THE COSPLAY SHOWCASE! AT MJX NOVEMBER
NOTE: It’s going to be fun! Whether you want to make a new costume, use a previous one, (or borrow) you are encouraged to do what’s best for you, and most importantly, have fun and meet fellow cosplayers.
Why Sign Up? This will help us properly plan the segment not only for you, but for the other cosplayers. Our first Cosplay Showcase! was during our first Cosplay Community Kenya #CosComKE Workshop in February 4th, 2017.
What will happen:
You will get to strut your stuff, show off your costume and props. Each registered participant will have a few moments to tell the audience something brief about their costume and why they picked the character they did… and do a lil’ something-something for the crowd, that’s reminiscent of their character. Easy-peezy, right?
Discounted event ticket price for all registered cosplayers. Secondly, on-location professional photography for all registered Cosplayers. Later, a select number of cosplayers (5 from each day) will be picked for an exclusive special professional cosplay photography shoot in studio the following week. The images from this studio shoot will be edited into composites, looking really cool and ‘wow!’. These images will look like they’ve been taken from the world of movies, anime, comic books that the you got your inspiration from! Visual examples below:
