Create. Learn. Master.

Our exciting new addition to CosXPo 2019 is our Easy United Cosplay Lab. The lab will be set up with various tools and materials for you to try. And it's open for the whole weekend so you can drop in at any time and experiment at your own pace. If you're new to something don't worry! Our handy Lab Technicians will be around if you need tips.

We introduced the Cosplay Lab to open up the world of cosplay for you. Sometimes it's hard to try new things without spending some cash, you might be wary of using a new tool, or be unsure if certain material will work for your cos-plans. So the Lab will give you a chance to get hands on.

Alongside the Experiment Area that you can use at your leisure, we'll be hosting drop-in style workshops over the weekend, where our Mentors will guide you through making something for you to take home.

So get ready to learn!
