CinCityCon welcomes all Cosplayers!

If you are a serious cosplayer for your favorite anime or Web comic, you are welcome to attend CinCityCon in full costume.  If you are a fan of Star Wars, Firefly, Lord of the Rings, Dr Who or Supernatural, you are welcome to celebrate your fandom in costume.  If you just love Halloween and dressing up, show us what you’ve got.  If you just have an awesome T-Shirt you want to show off, please come and do so.  CinCityCon loves Cosplay.

In addition to your chance to show off your skills, we have a number of events planned specifically for Cosplayers and those in costume.
