1UP Cosplay Village
The amazing 1UP Cosplay Village makes a return. This year, the medieval setting even matches our princess in distress theme of the expo and we'll have a never before seen catwalk-concept that will blow your mind!
Here are some of the things we'll have in store for you:
Costume Contest - Saturday 22 February - 13:30
Our partner Becosplay will host a Costume Contest at the 1UP Gaming Expo!
Things you should know: The Costumes will be prejudged and 100% of the scoring will happen on the costume itself. You get to walk on the awesome 1UP themed catwalk/stage and show off your threads. The host may talk to you or ask a few short questions, but it's not required to come up with a matching choreography.
Catwalk Contest - Sunday 23 February - 13:00
Strut your stuff (but mostly you cosplay) on our cooler-than-you-can imagine catwalk and you can even win an Xbox One S All-Digital console or cosplay gear.
No preregistration required, just show up to the expo on sunday morning and enroll in our cosplay village.
We'll have three well-known cosplayers gracing us with their presence. Who, you ask?
Captain Ghostly is a Belgian Cosplayer who has taken his craft to the international stage and now creates and performs fulltime.
Narga and Aoki , a married couple, are cosplayers from Saint Petersburg, Russia. They've been cosplaying together since 2008 and have made well over 50 different costumes since.
They will help out as jury members for both contests mentioned above.
