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.


Cosplayers, assemble…

EGX welcomes all levels of cosplayers, and over the years has seen stack loads of fantastic costumes and creations on the show floor. From Kingdom Hearts to Mortal Kombat, cosplay is a growing part of the EGX community, and we can’t wait to see what amazing characters 2020 will bring.

What’s on offer?

See your pop culture heroes come to life! For the full four days of the event, our cosplay stage will showcase the precision needlework and hot glue masterpieces. You won’t want to miss the truly impressive stage presentations from expert cosplayers sporting the coolest masquerades. What’s more, there will also be voting and prize giving, so you can cheer on your favourite get-up or even win over our judges and enter yourself!

If you’re looking to find tips on how to craft your dream costume, or if you just want to boost your existing skills, you’ll love our cosplay workshops. You’ll receive expert advice from cosplay professionals on how to create jaw-dropping costumes and props, as well as role play expertise that will raise your cosplay game to the next level. No need to book, just rock up with your questions at the ready! Our workshop timetable will be available nearer the date, so watch this space.

Anything else?

All this plus an opportunity to take an awesome new profile pic against our green screen, nab some merch and just enjoy the novelty of rubbing shoulders with characters you’ve kept trapped behind a screen.

A full schedule of events taken place on the Cosplay stage will be available closer to the event so keep your eyes on our social channels for updates.

Do I have to dress up?

Not at all, you can wear what you like! Join the sea of wigs and helmets or keep it casual in trainers and a hoody. You could even fish out that Captain America t-shirt you own that’s two sizes too small. We’re easy.
