Cosplay is the abbreviated form of “Costume Play” - the act of dressing up as a favourite character from an anime, manga or video game. Join us in the following events!
The Cosplay Competition is a beloved event in many anime conventions, often the centrepiece of the day. Many cosplayers participate by displaying their creative efforts put into their cosplay and entertain the crowd with clever skits and performances.
The competition is open to all people, young and old – you aren’t obligated to enter, but if you wish to display your efforts and share with us your creative talents, then sign on up for the Cosplay Competition! Check here for more information.
Cosplay Chess is exactly the same as normal chess - except instead of playing with a chess set, it's played with cosplayers on a human-sized board! Watch as Edward Elric battles Naruto and Goku pulls a fast Kamehameha on Luffy.
To participate you just need to fill out a form and choose on which side to fight on, whether white or black. Or just come along and watch! For more information check here.
