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!
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.
Jam packed with several sets to capture the perfect photo, a myriad of pro’s to chat to about best practice & techniques and several exhibits – including our new interactive Sewing Zone; visit the Cosplay Zone at i65!
