Cosplay contests gather artists who create their costumes from all over the world from pop culture characters (video games, mangas, movies, …). The materials used are very varied, some use fabric, others foam or metal! Through makeup and wig styling, come and see your favorite characters dazzle you on stage through a contest rich in emotions!
A panel of qualified judges will judge the best cosplayers by judging the costume as well as the stage performance.
If sewing or armor creation don’t scare you, if you like to bring your favorite characters to life in front of an audience, the contests are for you!
The individual contest will take place on Saturday afternoon while the group contest will be on Sunday afternoon.
If you would like to participate as a contestant, please first review the contest cosplay rules.
