Gowns & Armor

For all the hours spent sewing, gluing, nail gunning, and duct taping a costume together, it’s worth having a crowd to show it to. Not just any crowd, but one that cheers you on! Flaunt your personal twist on your favorite character’s fashion and participate in our cosplay competition.

Enter Yourself

Participate at our event by entering our competition. Check out the rules below for more info on how to qualify to compete!

Quick Facts About Entering

The full rules are available on the entry form, but this is some basic info to get you started.

Deadline is Friday, May 31st, 2019


Eligibility

All contestants MUST check in and be prejudged and you will need a DreamHack ticket. Nothing dangerous or offensive (we don’t want sexual costumes, fire, or glitter on the stage). Mock fighting is cool if it’s in slow-motion and completely fake (no physical contact). And PLEASE don’t bully anyone. If you think your costume is better than anyone else’s, let the crowd cheer you on.

Selection Process

Each contestant will have 10-15 minutes for pre-judging and up to 2 min on stage from entrance to exit. Contestants will be judged on preparation, craftsmanship, presentation, creativity, and an added bonus of Star Power. Star Power points will be awarded to contestants who can really engage the crowd and get them to go insane with applause!

Cosplay Lounge

A place to get away amongst like-minded cosplayers.

If you’re looking to get off the floor and take a load off from carrying around your gear or you want to fix a tear, this is the place to be. While it will be closed off for a small portion of the show for judging, it will otherwise serve as a cosplayers escape or quick fix station. Only cosplayers will be admitted.
