Cosplay Contest on November 28th at 5 pm and November 29th at 1pm in the Atrium

The costume contest belongs to a convention as much as cosplayers do. For the cosplayers and guests, as for the fair itself, it is one of the most rewarding highlights. Cosplayers prepare their costumes for months to present them in this show. They work night and day for their costumes, sometimes the last tunes are made even minutes before the contest to be ready for the stage and the hundreds to thousands of viewers in front of the atrium's stage as a part of the big, unique show.

The cosplayers take the audience into another world. With help of fitting music and their performance they bring characters, known from films, series, games and comics to life. It is not important to interpret them as detailed as possible, you can create something completely new.

Amazing prizes, spent by generous sponsors, will wait for the best cosplayers, an appropriate rewarding for the effort the cosplayers put in their costumes.

Due to various categories and a professional jury, it does not matter if you are a beginner or more advanced, every participant gets the same chances.

Since several years Hydra Forge hosts costume contests at established conventions and refers to this experiences and their own existence as costume builders to create an astonishing event for the cosplayers and the audience.

In 2019 there will be 2 Cosplay Contests again. On Saturday at 5 p.m. Uhr the solo-contest will take place, where attendees will present their costumes. On Sunday at 1 pm the group contest will take place, where attendees can participate in groups.
