Cosplayers are invited to participate in our big mainstage cosplay contest on Saturday afternoon to compete for cash prizes! There will be two categories. You must sign up in advance in Con Ops. Note that this is fun-focused contest instead of a super professional contest, but we still have rules and requirements for winning.


Newbies are cosplayers who haven’t competed or won with their costumes before.


Pros are cosplayers who have won awards for their cosplay at major conventions.
