The True Believers Cosplay Event
CELEBRATE COSPLAY AT TBCF
True Believers Comic Festival 2017 will see the return of the Celebrate Cosplay Hall, including the Celebrate Cosplay Panel, the cosplay workshops and the much loved Celebrate Cosplay Catwalk.
The Catwalk is just for fun (there are no prizes) and will be open to everyone in cosplay who would like to take part and strut their stuff for the crowd. There will be a sign up form on this page soon or you will be able to sign up on the day.
The hall will also feature our cosplay guests who will be on hand to pose for photos and talk cosplay. Full details of who our cosplay guests will be will be announced on this page in the run up to #TBCF2017.
Please keep coming back to this page for more information and updates.
You can also check out the official Celebrate Cosplay Facebook Page.
2017 COSPLAY CATWALK REGISTRATION FORM
This year, for the first time, we are offering cosplayers the chance to book their slot on the cosplay catwalk in advance from right here. The catwalk will take place at 3pm and you will be required to confirm your place on the catwalk on the day by no later than 1pm.
Online registration is only available to cosplayers who have bought their tickets in advance. There will only be a limited number of spaces available to those who wish to sign up on the day, so reserve your spot early to avoid disappointment. If you haven't got them already, you can book your advance tickets here.
CELEBRATE COSPLAY RULES
It is our goal with Celebrate Cosplay to both celebrate and encourage the art of cosplaying as well as promoting safe cosplay. We encourage those who want to come in cosplay to do so and to join our event and maybe even the Cosplay Catwalk. We also want those who are interested in seeing the cosplayers rather than dressing up to enjoy the event as well so here are a few guidelines to help make sure everybody has an awesome day.
1) DON'T BE WEIRD - If you like somebodies cosplay and want to take a picture, ask them. Please don't try and take sneaky snapshots. A posed photo is infinitely better than a fuzzy shot grabbed in a hurry.
2) COSPLAY ISN'T CONSENT - A persons costume isn't a greenlight to start touching them or making inappropriate comments under any circumstances.
3) LETHAL WEAPONS - A lot of cosplay costumes come with weapons and accessories and while we want your cosplays to be as accurate as you want them to be, any weapon that is deemed to be either too realistic or dangerous will be confiscated on the door and returned when you leave the event. If you are unsure about your accessory of choice, please email us in advance and we will offer guidance as best as we can.
4) HAVE FUN - True Believers Comic Festival and Celebrate Cosplay is all about the joy of loving comics and expressing that love, so have fun!
