Contest Sponsor
Welcome Cosplayers! We will be offering several Cosplay related events during Animethon 23, please be sure to read and understand the outlines of each event given below. Our events are held between set times for scheduling reasons and we're sorry but we can not make exceptions for late comers or those who "forget" to show up. We'd love to see as many of you as we can as we're always excited to see what you've come up with this event! So read the outlines, be aware of the time limits and come along and wow us! :)

Please Note

  • Communication is key! It’s important to let the staff know if you’re late, or can’t make it for whatever reason to keep the contest running as smoothly as possible.
  • You may take a walk on the stage for space between 10 and 11 on Saturday morning.
  • The Cosplay Repair Station will be open from 10am-6pm all three days
  • Send us your images and music as soon as you can to keep us up to date.
  • Arrive on time for the event.
  • There is no safe place to put your things while you’re in contest, so make sure any valuables are kept with a trusted friend.
