How it works

The C2E2 Crown Championships of Cosplay is a celebration of all pop culture. It is a craftsmanship award show with a pre-judging session and a stage display. All entries must represent a character or element from the pop culture realm – including Comic Books, Movies & Television, Video Games, Anime and Fantasy.

Each entrant will submit an application to be reviewed by the C2E2 team and entrants may only enter one costume into the competition. Accepted contestants will be pre-judged for craftsmanship off stage and then battle it out on the Main Stage for first place in their respective categories. Each of the first place winners will then move on to the Crown Championship round to compete for cash prizes and ultimate bragging rights as the C2E2 Crown Champion of Cosplay.
