Cosplay Contest: Meet the Judges

Our annual cosplay contest is fast approaching!  On Monday, August 14th dress up as your favorite character, be it superhero, anime, sci-fi or your own original persona. We’ll award prizes for the best costumes and characterization in different age categories, so be ready to show off your cosplay game!

The program is for all ages. Photos and registration will begin at 6 p.m., followed at 6:30 p.m. by a runway show.  The winners are determined by our panel of amazing judges who are plenty strong in their own cosplay skills and fandom knowledge.
