COSPLAY COMPETITION & SHOWCASE
Cosplay (Costume role playing) is essentially when fans dress up as their favourite Anime/Manga, Game character, sometimes even TV/movie or comic book characters too. Cosplayers often create their own outfits, with months of preparation going into their costumes – conventions provide them with the perfect place to show their creativity and skills.
A convention is the perfect place for fellow gamers to meet and spend quality time together, joining in the fun with multiplayer games. Gamers can test out the latest in games, technology and relax.
