VIECC Championships of Cosplay

How it works

The VIECC Championships of Cosplay is a celebration of all pop culture. It is a craftsmanship award show with a pre-judging session and a stage display. All entries must represent a character or element from the pop culture realm – including Comic Books, Movies & Television, Video Games, Anime & Manga and Fantasy.

Each entrant will submit an application to be reviewed by the VIECC team and entrants may only enter one costume into the competition. Accepted contestants will be pre-judged for craftsmanship off stage and then battle it out on the Main Stage for first place in their respective categories. Each of the first place winners will then move on to the final round to compete for the “best in show” places and the ultimate bragging rights as the VIECC Champion of Cosplay.
