Programming Events

Hall Cosplay

Hall Cosplay is a more relaxed form of cosplay competition based solely on craftsmanship, with no performance portion. Because of its flexible times and short duration for each competitor, it's a great option for those who have a busy convention schedule or don't want to go on stage.

Click the link below for rules to enter and compete in Hall Cosplay at LAG Fest in 2016:
