Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo To Host National Cosplay Championship

For the first time ever, Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo will be having a National Cosplay Championship on Saturday October 31st on the conventions Hot Topic Main Stage.

This will be the first time the convention has done anything like this outside of their original and less strenuous costume contest.

Almost anyone the age 13+ can enter and it’s a first come first served basis. So they ARE limiting how many entries they are taking.

The categories for the championship are:

1. Best individual in the Master category of Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo Cosplay National Champion, followed by 2nd and 3rd runner up. Ages 18 and up.
2. Best ensemble (2-4 persons) in the Master category of Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo Cosplay National Champion followed by 2nd and 3rd runner up. Ages 18 and up.
3. Best individual in the Journeyman category of Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo Cosplay National Champion followed by 2nd and 3rd runner up. Ages 18 and up.
4. Best ensemble (2-4 persons) in the Journeyman category of Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo Cosplay National Champion followed by 2nd and 3rd runner up. Ages 18 and up.
5. Best individual in the Junior category of Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo Cosplay National Champion (first place only) Ages 13-17
