The cosplay department puts together costuming-related events for those who plan to wear a costume or are interested in the idea of doing so. We coordinate fun and interesting panels for learning tips and tricks on how to make the costume you want, events for the cosplay community to connect and meet, and a yearly contest to show off your skills as a cosplayer!
The contest is Sunday, October 1st at 3PM, with a pre-judging at 1PM.
The announcement of winners will take place during the closing ceremonies at 5PM.

Sam has become master of foam work, building elaborate armor suits, while Jess prefers sewing and creating intricate details in her works.
