Mainstage Event / Performance Descriptions

Cosplay Masquerade

12:00pm - 1:00pm

Masquerade! Cosplayers on parade... Masquerade! Hide your obsession, so reality will never find you!

A twist on the classic "costume contest." Come dressed as your favorite characters and be judged accordingly. Since the audience votes for the winner, you can curry favor through spirit, elegance, kawaii, entertainment value, or with whatever angle you want within reason.

1:00pm and 4:00pm

We will be holding two raffles on the mainstage: one general prize pool raffle at 1pm and a raffle at 4pm for more specific items. Raffle tickets will be given out for free by visiting various events around the convention and will also be available for purchase. Prizes were very generously provided by Ultra Tokyo Connection and Kotobukiya. Click here for more info about the raffle
