Cosplay Contests and More!

Here is a quick look at some of our Cosplay programming coming to ROFCON!


The Hall Craftsmanship Contest is a COMPETITION for those who wish to have their costumes evaluated by a panel of judges. Those who enter will have five to ten minutes (depending on the number of entries we have) to talk about their costume with the judges. In order to compete you must have made 80% of your costume, or the person presenting the costume must be present. (Example: If you wish to make a costume and have someone wear it for the contest, you must be present to explain the construction and the awards will go to the creator of the costume, not the model wearing it). Original and fan based costumes are allowed. Sign ups for the contest will be at con on a first come first serve basis, stop by the cosplay info table to pick a time slot for Friday or Saturday judging.


The Fan Favorite Contest is for those who purchased their costumes or do not want to have their costume evaluated by judges, or just want to show it off! Stop by the Cosplay Info Table (Times to be posted) and have your picture taken, then send your friends by to vote for you! You can enter as many costumes as you like. The winner will be announced on our website and social media on Sunday! The earlier you enter the more time people have to vote for you!


Come and join us Friday from 12pm (noon) to 4pm at the Cosplay Marketplace! Here you can bring your old costumes, cosplay accessories, sewn or constructed craft items, notions, fabric scraps, props and prop
materials, and wigs to buy, sell, or trade among the cosplay community. No new items for resale, cosplay and craft related items only, no hardware such as machines, parts, etc. All items for sale are subject to approval by the Cosplay Department.


Two competitors (chosen from the audience) will have 20 minutes to turn their model into an original character with only the limited materials provided. Once complete they will have to introduce their new
character, complete with background story, to the audience. The winner, chosen by special guests, will earn the title of Closet Cosplay Champion. For your chance to be selected as a competitor arrive to the panel early to have your name put in for entry.
