*Judges may create additional categories as unique costumes may appear!
Contestants: Don’t worry about picking categories; everyone is entered into all categories and the best of each category is chosen by our Judges!
Contestants must stop by the SuperHeroes Unlimited Booth Area to sign up. You do not need to be wearing the costume you will be competing in when you sign up, but you do need to wear whatever costume you wish to be judged on during the competition.
Contestants must arrive at the contest location 30 minutes prior to contest start time to check in and to practice their entrance and exits and everything in between. SuperHeroes Unlimited will walk everyone though how to look fantastic on stage and get all those nervous jitters out!
During the show, all contestants will walk across the stage and show off their costumes to the audience. The judges may ask each contestant a few questions.
Contestants will be expected to stay for the entire duration of the competition.
Any faux weapons are acceptable that are considered safe for public use.
Any questions about the Cosplay Contest can be answered at the SuperHeroes Unlimited Booth or emailed to Cosplay@SuperHeroesUnlimited.com
