As long as your props comply with our Weapons Policy, you won’t run into any issues.
- Can I do a performance?
There are no performances in this competition, just walk on, strike some poses for our photographers, and walk off.
- What if my costume is busted on the day?
Supanova has a Cosplay Repair Station which can be found at Cosplay HQ. Our skilled team is able to assess and repair your costume, give you quality advice, and get you out and ready for your photo shoots and onto the stage for the competition.
All fields must be filled out for your application to be successful. One entry per person per day. If you are registering for a group, please make sure one application is submitted per group, as multiple applications received for single groups may result in that registration being declined.
