4th Annual Cosplay Competition

Saturday, March 19
6:30PM - 8:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Ballroom C
531 E 4th St


Cosplay, short for costume play, is like a geek fashion show, but instead of clothes coming from high-end designers, the costumes are based on video games, anime, manga, TV Shows, movies and books. Each entrant takes to the stage, showing off their handmade outfits, competing for a chance to win amazing prizes and the coveted Best in Show award! Sign ups for this competition are available at the cosplay booth.
