Parallax background

Cosplay

Cosplay is a huge part of any anime convention, and CPAC is no exception. We offer a variety of cosplay-related events and activities to keep everyone’s schedules full of fun. More events will be announced as the year goes on, plase follow our social media pages for updates!

Any questions can be directed to programming@castlepointanime.com.


Cosplay Runway

After spending countless hours stitching fabric, getting burned by hot glue guns, and scavenging every art and thrift store to create the perfect cosplay, all your hard work will finally pay off! Show off your masterpiece at the Cosplay Runway, where it will be judged by guest cosplayers. Sign-ups will take place on the day of the convention. Winners get to take home prizes and of course, bragging rights.

Entry is open until before the event starts


Cosplay Masquerade

Ever wanted to perform as your favorite anime character or watch your favorite anime characters in action on stage? Then attend the masquerade! You will be able to witness your fellow CPAC cosplayers perform in beautiful cosplay, ranging from comedy skits to reenactments of their favorite scenes!

Due to the pandemic, we have decided to hold a completely virtual Cosplay Masquerade along with restricting contestant application to only individual submissions (no group submissions allowed) in order to minimize the risks of everyone involved. If you have any questions, please send an email to programming@castlepointanime.com.

Please fill out the form below if you would like to perform in the Virtual Cosplay Masquerade. The event will be livestreamed and judged on Sunday, May 2nd, 2021.

There will be a panel of 3-4 judges working together to decide the winners for each category. The prize categories (and associated criteria for judging) currently include:

  • Best Craftsmanship: This goes to the person with the most impressive handmade cosplay.
  • Best Acting: This award goes to the person with the most convincing acting - voice and stage!
  • Best Skit Idea: This goes to the individual who had the idea that seemed the most inventive, unique, and entertaining!
  • Judges Choice: These awards are based on each judges personal favorite performance, based on how much they enjoyed said cosplay/skit! The prizes for judges choice are certificates!

(Note: these categories may be subject to change, and we will update this website and our socials if any changes are made as we finalize the details of Virtual Cosplay Masquerade.)

Additional information regarding the application and judging processes for the Virtual Cosplay Masquerade can be found in the contestant application form.
