Cosplay

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 2021 will bring.

What's on offer?

See your pop culture heroes come to life! The Cosplay Central stage will showcase precision needlework and hot glue masterpieces in the Cosplay Showcase on Saturday and Sunday. Cheer on your favourite get-up or even win over our judges and enter yourself for a chance of a prize. You won’t want to miss the truly impressive stage presentations from expert cosplayers! Check out the rules here.

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.

If competitions and slaving over foam and fabric isn’t your thing but you love to get into character, join our Cosplay Catwalk on Thursday or Friday to strut your stuff in style. All costumes welcome, bought or handmade, for this fun and friendly stage show. Sign up on the day before 14:00.

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 panels. 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! Our panel timetable will be available nearer the date, so watch this space.
