2017 Comicpalooza Crossplay Contest


Comipalooza's Annual Dragshow Cosplay Competition will be on Friday May 12th at 7PM in the General Assembly. 

Come and watch as misters and misses entertain and amuse us with their mad lip syncing skills and exciting performances! Drag Kings crossplaying as male characters are competing for the Mr. Comicpalooza 2017 title. Drag Queens crossplaying as female characters are competing for the Mrs. Comicpalooza 2017 title. Audience participation is encouraged. Similar to a drag show, the audience can tip the performers during the performance. Even better, audience reactions help determine the winners!

This is an 18+ event. Valid ID is required for entry.

If you would like to be a contestant simply sign up at the cosplay registration table during its hours of operation (10am - 5 pm) and bring your music on a thumb drive in mp3 format.
Winners will receive one weekend pass each for the 2018 Comicpalooza and be asked to attend next year’s Crossplay Drag Contest to hand off their titles. 
Be respectful to the performers. Booing and heckling is not allowed, anyone caught doing either will be removed from the event.
