September 17-18 2022 • Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
Cosplay Parade

Cosplay is a massive part of our festival and we encourage all cosplayers to participate on stage to showcase your costumes and the character you’re cosplaying!

If you’re interested, why not sign up for Crunchyroll-Hime’s Cosplay Parade? It’s all the glory, including some sweet prizes, without the pressure of portfolio judging.
