Cosplay Day and Cosplay Central’s Virtual Competition 2021

Fire up those heat guns and dig out those sewing kits!

One of the things that we love the most about our cons is the hugely diverse talent of fans who make and showcase their inspiring cosplay outfits.

To celebrate cosplay and its community as one of the pillars of our events, we’re excited to launch our very first Cosplay Day on Saturday, July 10.

Whether you’re a beginner or a cosplay veteran, this event is one not to be missed, it’ll be jam-packed full of tutorials, a virtual cosplay competition, guest panels and fan meet-ups.
