CosComp Registration

Register for the Bernina CosComp 2019 below!


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.
