Cosplay Stage 

Combining ‘Costume and Play’; get involved with interactive shows breathing life into the biggest fictional characters from the worlds of gaming and pop-culture.We’ll feature workshops throughout the weekend explaining the techniques you’ve learnt through our stage epics. Want to get hands on with cosplay? Ever wondered how to piece together a League of Legends character from scratch? add lights to your cosplay prop? Experiment with sewing machines or try out some amazing weapons? Come and have a go in our maker space; we will be systematically breaking down cosplay techniques by making parts of gaming characters you know and love through the course of the weekend and letting you try too!
