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, Jun 14th, 2019


Eligibility

All contestants MUST be on time (for the group meeting and pre-judging) check in and be prejudged. Nothing dangerous or offensive (overly sexualized costumes, liquids, fire, or glitter on the stage – please write us an email if you have a question regarding your costume).  All contestants must behave in good manners towards other contestants, judges and crew.

Acceptance to the cosplay contest will grant you free entrance to the event.

You may not use a costume which has placed (1st/2nd/3rd) at any previous Dreamhack event.

Selection Process

Each contestant will have a couple of minutes for pre-judging and up to 1 min on stage from entrance to exit – you may send in a up to 60 sec long performance/music for your performance (optional). Contestants will be judged on craftsmanship, creativity, likeness to character, stage performance 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.
