CosComp 2019 is Open!

CosComp 2019 Registrations are now Open!

 

COSCOMP is an online Cosplay competition with a major focus on your creative progress. It’s a competition that pays full attention to your whole Cosplay journey, not just the final result. What does that mean? Well, it means that we want to see everything that you do, the good the bad and the ugly. We want to see the design process, and fabric selection. The challenges you faced and how you overcame them. We want you to share the techniques that you used and what you learnt along the way.

COSCOMP is open to any skill level as you will be judged on the whole process, not just the finished Cosplay.

How does the judging work?

A panel of four will judge the entrants. All Cosplays will be judged on craftsmanship, sportsmanship, technical skill, ingenuity, problem solving and social media presents. The judges will select 3 finalists and from those a Grand Prize winner will be selected.
