Last year we were blown away by the talent and the quality showcased by the cosplayers who joined us at the show. Cosplayers joined us from around the country and our cosplay contest was a truly awesome spectacle! We also saw great attendance and participation in our cosplay panels, so that got us thinking…. we can we do more to support cosplayers this year?
Thanks to Anime World Expos and ASIHTB (…And Sewing is Half the Battle!) we are proud to introduce our Cosplay VIP Package and a series of Cosplay workshops (CraftShops!) to be offered to cosplay veterans and amateurs alike!
Our CraftShops are extended workshop opportunities for you to get direct, one-on-one interaction with a Cosplay expert as you work to create a craft during the lesson. There is a cost for our CraftShops, but this covers the material costs and everyone who attends will leave with hands-on experience to help them continue to grow their cosplay skills. Whether you’re a new cosplayer trying to learn the ropes or a pro looking to get some new tips and tricks, our five unique CraftShops will give you a great learning opportunity at PopCon 2015.
We also know the value of pre-judging, so our cosplay contest in 2015 will feature an improved system for pre-judging to help maximize everyone’s opportunity to have their craftsmanship reviewed by our professional judges. Cosplay VIPs will lead off the pre-judging with guaranteed timeslots and extended time working with the judges to review their cosplay.
Our Cosplay VIP passes and individual CraftShop passes will go on sale Tuesday, May 26 at noon EST. Limited quantities available, so be sure to buy your tickets as soon as they go on sale!
