Create-A-Character℠ Original Cosplay Contest

Have you ever wanted to create your own comic book or manga, or a really interesting character for a video game? This is your opportunity to showcase your original cartoon, anime, space alien, action adventurer or morally ambiguous inkblot character. Create a costume with a great back story, show us your true ingenuity and you could be revered in character history.

Create-A-Character℠  is Cosplay with a Back Story. Come in a Costume that is original, get up on stage and tell your character’s backstory to win … $50 CASH for winner plus weekend pass for next show (winning costume can only win once per weekend).

Heroes aren’t born, they’re made. And this is where they’re created. This contest is for original heroes that not only have cool costume, but also have a creative back story and unique powers and/or capabilities. So strap on your thinking cap, dust off that cape and show us your hero!

In the darkest corners of all of our minds is a desire to rule the world. Villains come in all shapes and sizes and all of them have a different reason for why they’ve turned to life of crime; This is your opportunity to showcase why your villain is the most terrifying and the biggest threat the world has ever seen and have the opportunity to steal the show!
