Cosplay sign ups and pre-registration open Saturday at 11:00 am (outside the panel room)
and end Sunday at 12:30 pm.
Youth Cosplay Contest: Sunday at 1:00 pm
Adults Cosplay Contest: Sunday at 2:00 pm
Each contestant must have a badge/wrist band to the convention and adhere to the convention’s costume and prop policies.
Pre-registration is required to guarantee a spot.
We will accept up to 30 entrants for the Adult Division (ages 13 & up) and up to 20 entrants for Youth Division (ages 12 and under).
Entrants in the adults tier must be on site, in costume, and ready to go at least 30 minutes before their contest. Entrants in the Kids Division should show up at least 20 minutes before, for a “relaxed rules” celebration of cosplay!
If you need any assistance, you may have one person to help you. No nudity and no profanity. That includes messages on signs, bad language or clothes.
For safety reasons, the following items aren't allowed: projectiles of any kind (darts, pellets, or even water), aerosol spray, pyrotechnics like fire, smoke, or fireworks.
Violators of any of these rules may be disqualified from the contest.
Contestants will be judged in the following criteria: Workmanship, Overall Appearance, Originality, and Stage Presence.
Surprise the audience! Surprise the judges! But do not surprise the Contest Organizer.
For the Kids Contest, we have prize packs filled with goodies for each age grouping. That's 0-4, 5-9, and 10-12.
For the Adults, we have cash prizes for each of three division. That’s Novice, Intermediate, and Master.
