The cosplay contest will be held Saturday afternoon in Main Events and is open to all attendees of ODUcon. Signups will begin Saturday morning at the prop check table near registration.
Each participant will come up on stage to present their cosplay before an audience and the judges. The judges will ask questions about the participant’s cosplay such as how it was created, what made them decide to cosplay said character, etc. Cosplays will generally be judged on appearance, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. Cosplays do not need to be entirely handmade to be judged.
Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place as well as a Judge’s Favorite chosen by each judge.
