Our massive EGX cosplay stage runs on all four days of the event and features masquerades with fantastic prizes, workshops offering advice to those looking to improve their cosplay skills, and stage presentations by expert cosplayers.
We love that Cosplay is a growing part of EGX and are blown away by the effort and creativity that our Cosplay visitors put into their costumes at the show. Prepare to be impressed…
What’s in store?
As ever, our massive Cosplay stage will play host to all things Cosplay for the full four days of the event. Expect dazzling masquerades with all your favourite characters, voting, prize giving and some truly impressive stage presentations by expert Cosplayers.
If you’re looking to find out more about Cosplay or improve your existing skills, you’ll love our Cosplay workshops, designed to help you pick up tips on costume creation and role play that’ll help you raise your Cosplay game to the next level.
Later, why not contribute to a Cosplay panel discussion or even host one yourself?! Previous year’s panels have explored how costumes are put together, how to construct props, tips on makeup and body language, as well as more conceptual discussions on identity and alter-egos. But all topics will be considered - submit your ideas here.
