The Cosplay Contest for Uchi-con 2019 will be held at 1:30pm! All contestants must be registered by noon. Registered contestants should line up outside Max Pavlesky Theater at 12:15 pm.
Have you put blood, sweat, and lots of tears into a magnificent battle axe? Spent every night for weeks shaping armor? Accidentally poked your fingers with needles while lacing together a fluffy petticoat? Then this is the perfect contest for you to show your beautiful creations to the world!
Our Cosplay Contest will be held at Uchi-con 2019 (February 9, 2019) at 1pm in the Max Palevsky Theatre. You will have the chance to sign up day-of if you would prefer to wait until then. However, if you fill out this form here, you will not have to submit it again at the convention. Just make sure to sign in when you're getting your badge from registration!.
To be eligible to be judged and receive prizes, you must have made at least 50% of your cosplay yourself. In addition, you must not have already won a cosplay contest with this specific costume before, whether at a previous Uchi-con or another convention. If your costume does not meet these conditions, you can still participate in the contest but will not be judged.
We judge in several categories: best in show, best novice and crowd favorite, with more to come! Because we judge in many divisions, even if you think your cosplay is not as extravagant as some others, you should enter! Plus, people will take pictures of all of the work you've done. This year, we will be judging based on your concept, craftsmanship, attention to detail, humor, and stage presence.
You will have to check in by 12:00pm at registration on the day even if you've signed up here!
