A fun and pressure-free way to show off your cosplay on stage regardless of where it’s from or how it was made! Everyone is invited to enter.


Entries are judged on the craftsmanship (design, construction, execution, and general presentation) of a costume. Costumes may have mass produced components, but MUST contain at least 60% of the entrant's handcrafted work. Costumes with mass produced or store bought components must be heavily modified in all levels of craftsmanship. Entrant must be able to show progress photos of costumes build. This can be done via smart device or progress book. Each participant will be given 2 minutes to explain details of work done. Commissioned costumes do not qualify for the craftsmanship category.
