Cosplay Contest


It's back and better than before: The Queen City AniFest is hosting a Cosplay Contest! We have a Kids Competition for those 12 and under; a Craftsmanship category for those who want to show off their mad cosplay-creating skills, and a Showmanship category for those who just want to show off!

Youth category:
For children 12 years and younger.


Walk-on contest:

For anyone who just wants to show off their cosplay!


Craftsmanship contest:

A panel of judges will examine your costume for accuracy and technique. If you want to be judged for craftsmanship then you MUST pre-register. When you sign-up you will get an email stating the time you need to attend your judging slot. There will be a limited amount of slots for people to sign-up for on the day of the convention. Sign-ups will close at noon on the day of the convention. 

**Craftsmanship contest entrants must have a costume AT LEAST 70% HOME-MADE**

The contest will begin at 2pm beginning with the youth division, then the walk-on division, and finally the craftsmanship division.
