Fantasy Weekend

2nd Weekend

Medieval Cosplay Contest At Food Court Stage

Saturday, November 14th @ 4:00pm

Rain Date- Sunday, November 15th

Sign up at the Guest Services booth at the front gate before 2:30 p.m. First 25 people signed will enter the contest.

 

Come join us for prizes in the cosplay contest! So come dressed as your favorite barbarian, elf, fairy, wizard, troll, or knight. We do ask that entrants stick to a historical or fantasy theme. Also, awards go to the “most popular” and “most creative” costuming effort. Cosplay is becoming a world phenomenon and when the SunCoast Renaissance Festival goes cosplay we go medieval! Entrants into the Costume Contest must be over the age of 16. Minors must have parents’ permission to enter to contest. Judging will be based on costume accuracy, craftsmanship, stage presence/performance, and overall impact

 

Contest Guidelines:
