Two Cosplayers

Cosplay for Everyone at The Game Expo!

We Love Cosplay!

TGX is excited to celebrate all levels of cosplaying through a variety of competitions and parades throughout the event. It doesn’t matter if you bought your cosplay online, or spent months making it by hand – there’s a place for you to strut your stuff on stage and have a chance to take home part of a $5000 cash prize pool, as well as other epic prizes.

Even if competing isn’t for you, our creative zone will still be packed with things to do, with photo walls, panels and more.
