2022 Mainstage Cosplay Contest

The Main Stage Cosplay Contest provides an opportunity for participants to showcase cosplay craftsmanship and runway performances. All entrants will be judged on craftsmanship and runway performance, where craftsmanship is judged before the Main Stage performance, and runway will be judged as entrants walk the stage. Entrants in the skit category have the option of being judged on craftsmanship. A single entry into the cosplay Main Stage is 1-2 individuals. Entries of 1-2 people are welcome to enter as a skit; however, if there are more than 2 individuals in your entry, you are required to enter as a skit. Skits may not exceed 6 people.
