Cosplay (Costume Play) means imitating different characters from film, television and games etc. At Comic Con, it’s definitely one of the funniest features. Many of our visitors come in cosplay and to just watch all the imaginative creations is worth a visit in itself!
At Comic Con Stockholm we offer something for all cosplayers – question panels for the curious, workshops for the beginner and competitions for the pros.
