  • Great convention and event for cosplayers and photographers and anything in between. From panels and workshops for all to having photoshoots in a wide assortment of scenery such as ancient rock formations, forests, and cherry blossoms gardens to a sci-fi backdrop. Plus you get to meet all the awesome and lovely people there. There's no other convention like this.
  • “CosXPo is such an amazing convention for cosplayers! Plenty of opportunity to learn new skills, take beautiful pictures and meet some of the loveliest people in the UK convention scene!”
  • “CosXpo was the first Cosplay event Dremel has been to and it was amazing to see so many people with so much passion, excitement and skill levels want to bring characters that mean so much to them alive! And it’s always good to see new and existing users get excited to play with Dremel tools too.”

  • CosXPo was the best cosplay and photography orientated con I have ever been to. Flew over from Ireland for CosXPo, and it is 100% worth the trip for any cosplayer.

  • CosXPo showed me once again how much love the community has to offer. I got to work with extremely skilled photographers, see my dearest UK friends and it was more than worth the trip all the way from Switzerland. 10/10 would come again.
