Hall Cosplay is an ideal competition to show off how well you bring your character to life. If you have never done a cosplay contest before, this is a great way to start. All you need is a costume and a pose.
This event takes place in Cosplay Central. You do not need to register in advance. Simply show up during one of the designated time slots, fill out an entry form, and pose for your photo. All photos will be taken by our contest photographer and then voted on by the AnimeIowa staff. One winner will be selected from each time slot, and the Cosplay staff will select an overall Hall Cosplay winner from these selections. All winners will be announced during the Mainstage Cosplay awards ceremony. If you cannot attend, you may pick up your award on Sunday in Cosplay Central.
