Florida Supercon has the largest cosplay and costuming events of any convention in the state of Florida, with non-stop panels, workshops, contests and photo shoots for 4 days straight! This year we will have more cosplay events than ever before and the addition of a Cosplay Central! More contests, more panels, more workshops… basically more COSTUMING & COSPLAY!
Cosplay Central is the area of our Show Floor devoted entirely to the fine art of costumes, crafts, and characters. There’s a dedicated Cosplay Stage, showcasing workshops and panels that are geared towards newbie cosplayers as well seasoned veterans. Plus, get a quick cosplay costume fix at our Cosplay Repair Station or make a quick costume change in our Changing Rooms. We’ve set up professional step and repeats so you can take an awesome photo against a fun photo backdrop. And don’t miss your chance to meet professional cosplayers at several signing tables throughout Cosplay Central. Whether or not you’ll be wearing an epic cosplay to Supercon, there’s something for everyone in Cosplay Central!
Every day of the show includes its own Cosplay Contest where the best costumers from all around compete to show off their skills!
