]Ever experienced moments when you think a certain character is better off with someone else? Or do you think that some couples in the series are simply more deserving of the limelight than others? Here’s your chance to “display” your fangirlism (or fanboyism, in the case you're a guy)!One True Pairing (OTP) Cosplay Competition - Format: Free performance no longer than 5 minutes (can be a dance, skit, song, acting out a scene, etc)Details: 1) The OTP competition is scheduled to be on Day 1, right after the Group Competition.2) The number of participants is capped at 10 pairs (2 people = 1 pair) and each pairing must be from the same series.3) Pairings can be involved in either romantic relationship, friendship or sworn enemies.

As long as they do NOT have a role (yes, a “tree” is still technically a role) in the skit, they can be considered as helpers.
