This year, cosplay fans attending Fan Expo events across North America will be treated to an extra special experience, as 2018 sees the launch of Fan Expo’s very first Master of Cosplay Grand Prix. Set to be the must-attend event of the year, the Master of Cosplay Grand Prix final will take place in Toronto on September 1, 2018.
This celebration of some of the best cosplay around will bring together “Best in Show” winners from each of the qualifying rounds for their chance to compete for the ultimate prize of $5,000 and to be crowned as Fan Expo’s very first Master of Cosplay Champion.
Cosplayers from around the globe can pre-register for the qualifying round contests to be held at FAN EXPO Dallas, Calgary Expo, MEGACON Orlando, FAN EXPO Boston and FAN EXPO Canada for a chance to win some amazing prizes. The grand prize winner from each qualifying round will receive an all-expense paid trip to Fan Expo Canada in Toronto to compete in the final round of the Master of Cosplay Grand Prix. Pre-registration will open 2 months before each event.
The competition is open to any cosplayer age 13 and older, and who has admission to one of the qualifying exhibitions. Costumes must be at least 50 percent handmade or altered, and commissioned costumes will only be allowed if the creator is present.
