COSPLAY ROYALE

 

This is our largest Cosplay event of the weekend.

 

The Cosplay Royale is judged on quality and stage presence.

Categories

  • Exhibition: This category is for entrants that did not make their own costume or made less than 50%.

  • Beginner Craftsmanship: This category is for entrants that have never won a costume award before or have been making costumes for a few years or less.

  • Intermediate Craftsmanship: This category is for entrants that may have won a few awards before, have won an award equivalent to “Best Beginner”, or have been making costumes for a few years or more.

  • Master Craftsmanship: This category is for entrants that have won several awards, have won an award equivalent to “Best Intermediate”, or have been making costumes for many years.

The Judges may bump you up a class if they feel you qualify for a higher award.

 

 

 

HOW TO ENTER

YOU MUST HAVE A WEEKEND PASS

  • Online pre-enrollment will open 2 months in advance and will close 1 week before Cosplacon weekend if slots are not already full. Online-enrolled entrants will be contacted with their specific pre-judging time before the convention.

  • Only craftsmanship entries will be eligible for online pre-enrollment. You’ll be required to send 2-3 work in progress photos of your costume to show you are working on the costume and will have it finished before Cosplacon.

  • If there are any remaining spots open after online pre-enrollment closes, signup will be available from Thursday until Friday evening (or until all available spots have been filled) at Cosplacon Information Table.

  • We will accept no more than 40 entries, so please plan ahead!

  • No late entries will be allowed.

  • If you miss or are late to your pre-judging time slot, it is up to the judges on whether or not they can squeeze you in after the other entrants.

Enter your Pre Registration order number here. Entries without a valid order number will not be considered.
