Adult Cosplay Competition

We want you to get dressed up and strut your stuff for a chance to win some great prizes including gift vouchers, merchandise and event tickets. We also have a another prize for the special category. Please see below.  

There is no need to preregister before the day - just head over to the cosplay registration desk next to the main stage when you arrive and sign up. We will then invite you up on the stage to do your catwalk and strike a pose and if you’re feeling up to it say a little line in character.
