Cosplay @ CTIAF 2019

March 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Cape Town International Animation Festival is an experience like no other in the year. A three day bonanza that includes some of the top animators and artists in the country and out, dozens of companies looking for new talent, and even more films and media on display for your consumption! The amount of networking and interaction at CTIAF is unparalleled and there is an unending supply of workshops and panels to attend that will be sure to spark your interest.
For full details of the event itself, follow their page: https://www.facebook.com/CTInternationalAnimationFest/
But on the cosplay side, it also has so much to offer! We’ve participated in character panels before, and have had opportunities to meet and promote cosplayers who attend to a variety of exhibitors. This will be our third year of working together with CTIAF, and it promises to be the biggest yet!
Anyone who attends Saturday in full costume will enter the event for free, and we will have a cosplay masquerade at 1 PM (time subject to change) with over R1500 worth of prizes to be won! The judging is informal and the prizes awarded on the spot, although fair warning: cosplays based on animated characters will have a higher chance of winning. The contest is open to all and there are no restrictions on the outfits/characters that may enter so feel free to bring along your OCs and furry costumes 🙂 And if you’re still trying to figure out your outfit, check the CTIAF website and page for inspiration based on this year’s theme.
Please don’t forget to sign up for the masquerade before it begins at the CCT table on Saturday. Bring some friends along or come hang out with the admins, but the festival is sure to keep you entertained! We can’t wait to see you all soon!!
