Cosplay is a huge part of every Comic Con

At Basingstoke Comic Con, everyone is invited to dress up to display their love for their favourite characters. So, if you’re considering attending in cosplay as your favourite superhero, anime or video game character, Supernatural or Stargate character – you won’t be alone!

On the Saturday evening we’ll be having a Costume Competition. A chance for fame for all cosplayers. Where we will be awarding prizes to those whose efforts they deem to be the best.

Nudity is not permitted, nor are exposed costume or prosthetic genitalia. Adult fetish attire such as extreme BDSM gear is also unsuitable. Attire or costumes with the following: insensitive or unnecessary use of makeup, profanities or sexual acts; inciting of hate or crime; and uniforms, emblems, or flags of organisations responsible for crimes against humanity are unacceptable.
