Cosplay @ ECCC

Cosplay Central is the place to be for anyone interested in cosplay! While you’re there, meet other cosplay enthusiasts at photo meetups from your favorite fandom, and utilize ECCC photo backdrops for some great pics. Whether you have been cosplaying for years or are interested in beginning now, there is something here for everyone! Attend cosplay workshops for all levels to learn new techniques and discuss building your own cosplay, and return to your everyday human cosplay using our cosplay changing rooms.
