CosXPo 2019. Here's what went down at our 2nd event!
If you missed it, or want to re-live the awesome weekend, take a look at our 2019 round up!
Wow. Somehow CosXPo 2019 has come and gone! We expanded our event this year and added an extra day, and with an extra day came lots of extra stuff!
If you came we hope you had a great time! Here's a little round up our favourite moments from the weekend.
The Cosplay Lab
Our biggest new addition to CosXPo 2019 was our Cosplay Lab sponsored by Easy United Ltd.
Our lab techs hosted hands-on workshops so you could come along and create things like flower crowns and cat ears. Or you could pop in and try out different tools and materials like air brushes, hot glue, Worbla, and foam.
Workshops and Panels
We had new Workshop rooms for our 2nd event which meant we had even more workshops and panels. Over 20 super talented Mentors joined us to share some of their crafting, performance, and general knowledge on all things cosplay. Here's just a few!
Pipa Wolf Cosplay
Pipa Wolf doing her thing and sharing some knowledge on all things Leather!
Chris Minney shared his cosplay-turned-fitness journey, and how his favourite characters encourage him to get stronger.
Copilot Cosplay (and some familiar faces) gave us an intro to puppetry.
Shirak gave us a live SFX make-up demo on Nomes Cosplay, turning her into a very convincing Dende from DBZ (check out her page for the finished look!)
The Red Carpet returned
Our amazing sponsors FreshCrewStudios brought back their red carpet to let everyone showcase their costumes for the day. Each shot was uploaded straight to Facebook to be shared with those that couldn't make it to the event. If you haven't seen yours yet check out the album here!
Bee: Yousei Cosplay
Photoshoots galore took place across the grounds
From the rockeries, blossom trees, rivers, woodland and varied architecture, cosplayers and photographers collaborated to get some incredible shots.
And so much more *takes deep breath*
Our fantastic stage hosts gave our audiences (at the event and on our live Twitch stream!) a constant stream of laughs, our NEW CUSTOM photosets gave opportunity for new collaborations and great shots, our fantastic vendors sold their unique wears, the rain held off (phew!), the CosXPo championships saw a new winner, we gave away a load of sweet prizes, and had another great evening at our VIP After Party!
And there's just a snippet of our second event!
We had a great time and we couldn't have done it without your amazing support. We love bringing something different to this amazing community, and hope you enjoyed your time collaborating, learning, and getting hands-on.
Keep your eyes pealed for announcements coming soon...
