Cosplay Cars by Holy Grail Multiverse is an innovative effort to apply the incredible skills of cosplay artists to vehicle customization.
PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA, USA, November 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — At the intersection of “Cosplay” entertainment and car customization is an event that crashes these two exciting arenas together, creating something new and innovative: Cosplay Cars!
Brad Toles, owner of All American Classic Car Restoration in Palm Springs, California, believed that his fanaticism for comic heroes would blend well with another of his passions: creative car building. The result of this mashup –was the first ever virtual Cosplay Car competition
“I have always loved Marvel, DC and other comic characters; it just seemed natural to merge this exciting world with another of my major interests, car building,” said Brad Toles. “The creativity we witnessed with our first Cosplay Cars competition validated what I had hoped. I am so appreciative of the contestants who understood the concept behind Cosplay Cars and took the time to make it a success.”
For Cosplay Cars by Holy Grail Multiverse, contestants were allowed to pick their level of engagement ranging from simple graphic treatments to ground up custom car builds. Along with a cash prize, first place winners received a custom trophy emblazoned with the Holy Grail Multiverse (HGM) logo (Cosplay Cars’ parent company).
