Our cosplay 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!  EGX patrons are encouraged to participate by watching and cheering on the contestants!

Please review the CTC Simulated Weapons policy when constructing your cosplay!

Do you have an awesome costume you want to show off?  You should participate in the Costume Contest on Saturday, May  18!  This is a wonderful opportunity for you to have fun and show off your skills in sewing, creativity, and craftsmanship.

Please note that participating as a contestant will involve at least 3 hours of your time on Saturday evening.  This does not include pre-judging.  You can view some frequently asked questions here.

The EGX Factor

Much like the hit TV show, The EGX Factor (formerly GeekFest’s Got Talent) is a chance for EGX goers to showcase their talents.  We’re looking for acts of all kinds.  So, if you sing, dance, play a musical instrument, juggle, tell jokes, yodel, act, do stand-up comedy, or whatever else… we want to see you ON STAGE! 

Please note that participating as a contestant will involve up to 2 and a half hours of your time on Sunday afternoon.
