Cosplay Overview

a.k.a. “Costume Play”

Cosplay at the Washington State  Summer Con will fall into three areas.  Adults having fun, Kids having fun, and the serious Cosplayers competing for fame, glory, and prizes.

Cosplay Overview

We strongly encourage attendees to dress as their favorite characters during the Washington State Summer Con. Whether your favorite character is from a cartoon, movie, television show, comic book, book, historical character, or anywhere else we want you to have fun with it!

Cosplay is designed to be fun and interactive; however, the safety of our attendees and the comfort of our cosplayers is paramount and will not come second. Please help us make this a great event by adhering to our policies and regulations. We look forward to seeing what everyone has!

Cosplay Garden Lounge

The Washington State Summer Con is proud to provide a location that allows a spot for cosplayers to rest, socialize and fellowship with fellow cosplayers.  The Garden is an outdoor covered area perfect for a photo or two with friends, new friends and even a home base to assist each other with costume needs.  There are tables and chairs to each lunch, plan meetups, and take the all-important group photos.

Cosplay Gatherings

A highlight for many cosplayers, and for other event attendees, are the different cosplay contests. We plan on having some amazing contests, awesome music, a great venue, and prizes.

We will have several categories for various levels of skill. To participate you will have to register at the Cosplay Information Booth located right inside the entrance to Summer Con.

Cosplay Photos

Located inside the Showplex at the Washington State Summer Con will be Triple Click Photo with their portable studio set up for the newest to the most experienced cosplayer to get some professional photos right at the convention.  Rates will be posted at the show or by contacting triple Click Photo directly.
