Join us for the COSParade (anything goes) or the COSTest (handmade only) and get a chance at winning an exciting prize! While HYPER JAPAN welcomes cosplayers of all experience levels, this new competition celebrates the skills of those cosplayers who go the extra mile to make bespoke costumes that show their love for the characters they portray.
In order to make HYPER JAPAN a safe and comfortable experience for all, we may enforce rules regarding weaponry and costuming. We will be announcing these as they’re decided.
