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 were multiple ways to embrace cosplay at Comicpalooza. Fans dressed up, walked around, and became part of the experience while others participated in one of our cosplay contests, or cheered of on fellow cosplayers!

For the craftsmen, you can take the stage and show-off your incredible costumes and fabulous flare at the annual Comicpalooza Cosplay Contest. While aspiring young cosplayers can sign-up for the Kid's Cosplay Contest.


Be respectful to the performers. Heckling is strictly forbidden.
