Cosplay @ ComicEx 2019
March 23, 2019 @ 9:00 amTBA
ComicEx Cape Town returns for its second year after a triumphant run across the country! ComicEx provides our favourite vendors and crafts as well as some new twists to the convention scene, with interesting new ideas for entertainment, fun games to try, plenty to do and even more ways to ensure that you get your money’s worth! Where else can you get involved in an all out Nerf war or play your favourite arcade games, before visiting the local hypnotist and then trying your hand at a joust?

We, on the other hand, want to talk about our favourite part of any event: COSPLAY! ComicEx is never shy to provide for cosplayers, and this year they are stepping up! Saturday will be a simple masquerade to show off your best with spot prizes handed out to crowd favourites, but on Sunday comes the construction competition, with cash prizes to be won.
The exact schedule and rules will be provided soon, but you will have until 12 PM on Sunday to sign up for the contest, which requires you to have created a certain percentage of your costume from scratch, provide references and a work book containing progress pictures of you making your outfit. For the masquerade, you will need to sign up by half an hour before the masquerade begins, and be in line for the stage 15 minutes before time. Sign ups will take place at the Cosplay Cape Town table.
ComicEx has special ticket deals running for cosplayers, so if you’re planning on going in costume – no matter your skill level or what costume it is – check out their FB page for the full details of how to get that discount!
