We love cosplayers, and we want to see your best costumes at Dallas Comic Show on September 16-17. Show us what you can do, and enter our costume contest which will be held Sunday at 3:30pm. Cash prizes and cool swag for the winners, this is a great opportunity to show off your best duds in a safe and welcoming environment. Dallas Comic Show is a strong supporter of safety within the cosplay community, and we’ll have security on site should there be any problems. Always remember, Cosplay is NOT consent, and if you see any inappropriate behavior don’t hesitate to alert us.
Please note, there will be a weapons check desk when you arrive. All prop weapons must be approved and tagged before being brought into the event. We will have a “Cosplay Lounge” room which can be used to make touch ups on costumes, or just take a break from walking the show floor. You’ll find it on the show floor map distributed at registration.
The Costume Contest will be held Sunday at 3:30pm and is expected to run about an hour. We’ll be awarding child’s costumes during the contest too (at the beginning), so bring the kids in their coolest outfit and they might just win something. The Sunday contest is intended for advanced cosplayers, but all entries are welcome. Dallas Comic Show is a family-friendly event, so we expect all costumes to be respectful and appropriate for a family atmosphere. If you have concerns about whether or not your costume is acceptable, please contact us in advance.
