Cosplay Contests

General Guidelines  |  Main Cosplay Contest  |  Hall Cosplay Contest

Cosplay is a huge part of our community and we have two cosplay contests dedicated to those who put time and effort into their costumes. If you are interested in competing, click the links above for how to apply and the rules for each contest! If you are a cosplay lover and just interested in watching the competition, check out the details on each contest below.

Main Cosplay Contest

This is our flagship cosplay contest and is for those that wish to compete on the main stage. This competition is open all skill levels and accounts for performance, showmanship and stage presence. This contest has pre-qualification rules, a limited number of open spots and includes segments for both walk-ons and skits. If you’re looking to compete on the big stage, this is the competition for you.

Hall Cosplay Contest

This is our craftsmanship only contest and is for cosplayers and costumers who want to compete solely on their craftsmanship. This competition is open to all skill levels, requires less of a time commitment than the main contest, and has no stage requirements. This contest has no pre-qualification rules to participate and is open to as many competitors as can be judged in the time allotted. Because this contest is not a stage contest, there are no walk-on requirements or skits allowed. If you’re looking to see how you measure up, but want a stage free, casual experience with more time to enjoy the event, this is your contest!

Are you wanting to compete in the the Hall Cosplay Contest? Signups will be available on-site at the event on Friday and Saturday in Cosplay HQ.
