Cosplay is more than a costume. Cosplay is recreating a character from a published work via costuming and acting, from perfectly styled hair; carefully applied makeup; masks, props, character voices, to acting as the character, it all comes together in cosplay.

There are multiple ways to embrace cosplay at Comicpalooza. Fans can dress up, walk around, and become part of the experience while others can participate in one of our cosplay contests, or cheer on fellow cosplayers!

Participating cosplayers can take the stage and showed-off their incredible costumes and fabulous flare at the annual Comicpalooza Cosplay Contest, while aspiring young cosplayers can participate in the Kid's Cosplay Contest.


Be respectful to the performers. Heckling is strictly forbidden.
