Register Now For The Cosplay Central Crown Championships

New global cosplay competition is now open to enter!

We’re full steam ahead returning to live events in 2021 and we’re excited to announce the new Cosplay Central Crown Championships coming to a ReedPop con near you. 

The EuroCosplay Championships and the Crown Championships of Cosplay have joined forces to create this one global competition. The global final will now be held at MCM London Comic Con in October 2022 and beyond. 

Entrants for the Cosplay Central Crown Championships will be able to choose between recreating a character design and being judged for accuracy or creating their own design based on a recognizable pop culture character and being judged on the design and interpretation of their given starting point. The ability for cosplayers to choose their own competition path embraces the full scope of cosplay creativity. 

Craftsmanship is still at the heart of the championship. All of the entries will have their costume construction closely inspected by our judges, before they take to the stage and show off their creations with incredible costume presentations or scripted performances inspired by their characters.

Be sure to set a couple of reminders in your phone and make sure you register early. The specific deadlines qualifier registration for all shows are as follows: 

  • Florida Supercon: July 14, 2021 - August 8, 2021 
  • New York Comic Con: July 14, 2021 - August 15, 2021 
  • MCM London Comic Con: TBA 2022* 
  • Emerald City Comic Con: August 30, 2021 - September 26, 2021
