More about the categories:
  • For Fun (Kids/Adults/Families) – Show off your cosplays simple or complex! Kids & Adults sections are solo, family is a group effort. Include a brief bio in your comment explaining your cosplay character, what they mean to you, and any other information you’d like us to know.
  • Craftsman - Craftsman entrants are required to have made 50% or more of their costume themselves. Be sure to show off your cosplay details! Include a brief bio on yourself as a cosplayer, what efforts went into your entry’s creation, what this character means to you, and any other information you’d like us to know.
