GeekFest’s costume events are designed to provide a fun and friendly environment for all costumers and cosplayers to show off their skills in sewing, creativity, and craftsmanship – all while paying homage to their favorite anime, comics, tv series, movies, and everything else! 

Not a cosplayer or costumer?  That’s okay!  GeekFest patrons are encouraged to participate by watching and cheering on the contestants!
