One of the most popular activities associated with Comic Cons around the world is cosplay: dressing up as your favorite character from a movie, book, or video game. During Preble County Comic Con®, we’ll be deciding on the best costumes for two different age groups: 0- 13 yr. and 14 yr. and older. There will be prizes for first place, runner up and honorable mention for each age group. You can pre-register at the Eaton library by filling out a Cosplay Contest Registration Form. Costumes from all genres are acceptable, and original characters are welcome, too.
Only handmade or hand assembled costumes will be accepted. You can use pre-styled/modified accessories such as wigs, shoes, and props, but we strongly encourage handmade accessories. This is your chance to show off your handiwork!
Contestants are encouraged, though not required, to bring a reference photo or drawing of their character for the judges. Actual weapons and other items considered dangerous by the library are prohibited, and all costumes must follow the library’s code of conduct (such as no nudity or offensive language) as this is an event for all ages.
