Cosplay Cape Town welcomes you!

Our Cosplay Cape Town community is built by geeks, enthusiasts, make-up artists, hair stylists, designers, photographers and local businesses who often function almost exclusively within our community.

We represent this diverse group, and firmly believe that no one is the wrong age, size, gender or race to cosplay.
We also attend and help organise the cosplay side of many of the major conventions in Cape Town and various other events (cosplay picnics, Japan day, cosplay balls, cosplay workshops). If you want people in cool costumes at your event or need assistance organising a costume competition or masquerade, please contact us!

We offer advice and support to budding enthusiasts of the hobby. Struggling with a pattern? Not sure how to win a contest? Can’t decide where to start? Want to wear an outfit but not willing to make it? We can help!

If this sounds like your cup of tea, you’ve found the right community! Welcome to Cosplay Cape Town!
