 Join the FCBD Cosplay group page on Facebook !



Dress up in your favourite costume from the world of comics, anime, gaming, genre films & TV, or pop culture in general ! If you're a novice cosplayer or an experienced cosplayer, hiring a costume or making your own, this is the event to come and strutt your stuff ! In recent years, the number of cosplayers have rapidly exploded, so come and join the fun !


Stadium on Main Forecourt Arena @ 2pm

This year's event will host a cosplay masquerade for the first time, and is sure to be a highlight on the day. All cosplayers who wish to participate in the masquerade must register the character they are cosplaying and to receive a number just before the masquerade begins at 2pm. Cosplayers will then be called up in number sequence to pose on stage and have their official photo taken. Lucky draw spot prizes !

Basic Rules : No real weapons, only replicas allowed. No nudity.


All official pics of cosplayers that entered the masquerade, as well as decent pics taken by our photographers of cosplayers during the day, will automatically be entered into the Cosplay FCBD Fan's Choice friendly "competition" on our facebook page during the week after FCBD. Fans may vote for their favourite cosplayer by "liking" the pic of their choice. A Top Ten listing will be posted when the Fans Choice closes at a time/day to be confirmed. Note, there are no prizes involved in the Fans Choice, this is a fun event to gauge cosplayer favourites among fans in general.




'Notice Me Senpai Photography' will be handling the photobooth on the day ! Get your pics taken in costume and printed on the day for R50
Minor edits and custom backgrounds can be arranged
Note the photobooth will start from 11am


By cosplaying at FCBD Cape Town we reserve the right to use any pictures taken of you on the day for any FCBD/Readers Den marketing
