Announcing: ATC Cosplay Fest!

August 17th 2015, 00:22 CDT

Celebrating one of the best parts of any convention, Anime Twin Cities brings you its first Cosplay Fest! We have a range of activities planned to interest any fan of cosplay at this all-day special event.

1) Workshops! Learn new techniques to improve your costuming and performance skills, taught by local experts. Any necessary materials will be provided.

2) Photography! All attendees in costume will get a short personal photo session with an experienced photographer.

3) Contests! There will be a formal workmanship contest, and a fun "Iron Cosplay" contest where teams construct a costume out of surprise materials.

4) Community! Bring a work-in-progress and enjoy the company of other crafters and seamsters in our shared work space.

Date: Saturday, September 26
Time: 10 AM - 9 PM
Place: Geek Partnership Society, 1121 Jackson St NE, Suite 106/107
Cost: $15, or $10 with your 2015 Anime Detour badge

This is our first event of this kind, so space is limited and we will have to cut off registration when we reach capacity.

We have room for a few more workshops in the schedule, so if you are an experienced costumer and would like to teach a workshop, send your qualifications and ideas to social@animetwincities.org for more information. We are particularly looking for workshops related to making costumes (sewing basics, prop construction, etc). Material costs will be covered by ATC.

More details will be announced closer to the event. Stay informed by watching one of the event pages:
