Cosplay @ UCON 2019

March 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am - March 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

R80 – R100

The anime and gaming society of UCT returns for its biennial event, UCON! The biggest university convention is back and has a shiny new look thanks to its move to one of Cape Town’s premiere event venues!

But don’t worry: UCON will still be providing all the things we have come to love about it: the only maid cafe in the country, the fun quizzes, the interesting displays, the best and most quirky of geeky vendors and everything we love about anime and gaming!

But enough about the event itself (they have their own event for this stuff: https://www.facebook.com/events/248480479383368/), let’s talk cosplay! This year we will be hosting two contests, following the successful format of the last UCON: a casual comp on Saturday and the advanced comp on Sunday. Both days will feature the cosplay masquerade on stage for non-competitors, and the judging for both contests will be completed by 2 PM latest.

Full rules and details will be published on the event page, but be sure to come sign up at the CCT table ASAP on the day and be on time for the cosplay events, or else forfeit your place. The contests are free to enter and prizes will be well-worth your time!

Everyone will have plenty of time to enjoy the festivities so bring your cash, your favourite costumes and plenty of friends to share the experience with!

Entry to the convention cost R80 for a day pass and R100 for a weekend pass (for non-Genshiken members)
