Cosplay Fashion Show

Saturday, May 6, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
It's not a judged contest, just a chance to walk the runway and strut your stuff and show the world what you did with your cosplay this year. The questions that we will ask you will be mostly about how you made your cosplay and props. We will not be asking you to answer "in character". It's more of a chance to share your knowledge with others and maybe even pick up a tip or two for your next cosplay idea. Points will not be given, but it's still a ton of fun.
