Please join us for our first ever on stage, crowd judged, posing contest.  Whether you want to be on stage in your favorite sentai, tokusatsu or magical girl costume or you just want to come by and see what it’s all about, we would love to have you.  If you just want to sit in the crowd and help judge the event with your cheers and applause, then thank you in advance from the cosplay team.


Contestants need:


  • A sentai, tokusatsu or magical girl character costume

    • It can be bought, made, or put together from your closet
    • It can be any version of a sentai, tokusatsu character or magical girl costume.  That means plain clothes (i.e. Sailor moons school uniform) are OK too.

  • The first go through of our participants will be a pose of their choice, then the head to head pose off will begin! You will be paired off against a "rival" for the audience (bring your friends!) to cheer on! Poses should be character specific (victory, transformation, power up, etc). Eliminations will be judged through volume by our esteemed highly trained two person panel of professionals (so, two of our staff members).

  • There will be prizes!

  • To register stop by the Cosplay Table before 2pm on Saturday. Or you can register online at. Make sure to stop by the Cosplay Table before 2pm to check in if you register online.

  • To check-in at the event location during 30 minute set-up time (this will be written on your event badge).
