August 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

On Saturday 28th October, one week before the Isle of Wight Comic Con, there will be an opportunity to ‘go full cosplay’ in Newport and test out what you’ve got!

The organisers of the main event will have a little set-up either in a shop or gazebo in the square (TBA – depending on weather) as a focal point for the gathering. You can meet some of the crew and volunteers and ask any questions you may have! You can also meet other cosplayers and get to know each other face to masked face.

More importantly it’s an opportunity to test out your cosplay live in public and maybe get your photo in the paper for the following week (wink wink!).
