When is The Cosplay Cup?
The TGX Cosplay Cup is held on Saturday March 11. Pre-Judging and Stage times are TBC.
Can we enter as a group?
No, the TGX Cosplay Cup is only for solo entrants.
You asked for my cosplay social media links, is this taken into consideration in the final judging?
No. We only ask for this information to get a better idea of you as a cosplayer, as well as being able to shout out your accounts on our social media, with your consent.
Does my costume need to be made just for The Cosplay Cup?
No, you can use a costume you’ve made previously, or one in progress, as long as it abides by the rules and has not previously placed in another competition.
I only cosplay as a hobby, can I enter?
Absolutely! The Cosplay Cup is for experienced cosplayers, but this does not mean you have to be a professional cosplayer to enter.
Does my costume have to be large?
No. As an advanced level competition, the judges will be looking at accuracy to a reference, as well as quality of construction and complexity of skills.
