Apparently cosplay isn't *too* popular.

The first global Splatfest is in the books, and the Fancy party dazzled their way to victory.

Global: Fancy 358, Costume 342 (52-48, 51-49) At Flounder Heights, the sharp dressed squids and kids were the sharper shooters on the day following a narrow win in the popularity poll. Callie's worldwide win marks her first win in North American competition since January. Although narrow battle wins are par for the course in Japan - where the result has been 51-49 on three prior occasions since the 6x multiplier, this is a first for North America in the same time and just the second for Europe/Australia.

Wow, I think this is the closest fest I've seen!

I'm a little surprised, I also thought Costume would win popularity. I had no idea how wins were going to go from my own experience however, as my teams won about 50% of the time.

I totally forgot that the splatfest was this weekend. :(

This was easily the most fun Splatfest I've participated in (even though the wrong team won). I hope all of them are global from now on.

So far, I haven't had free time during any of the Splatfests. Do they ever do them in the middle of the week?

As far as I know, they've all been on a Saturday in the US. Maybe a Sunday too? But yeah, pretty sure none have been during the week, unless you count starting on Friday night in certain timezones.
