Join us for a CosXPo 2018 recap!
Now that planning for CosXP0 2019 is well underway, we thought we'd share a recap of our first cosplay and photography event earlier this year to give you a taste of what's to come next year.
Our first ever cosplay event CosXPo 2018 was held in March this year, and what a great event it was!
Our event was made for cosplayers and photographers to come together and have a space to develop their knowledge and get creative! We were blown away by our attendees enthusiasm to learn, collaboration, and explore the surrounding areas and our custom sets to get some great shots.
CosXPo 2018 pulled in over 800 in attendees. Our amazing senpais who joined us from around Europe, shared their knowledge and expertise through workshops and panels.
Everyone made the most of the beautiful grounds with cosplayers and photographers coming together to create some fantastic work (even in the unfortunate weather!).
We've gathered some shots of the venue and activities, workshops and panels, and some of the magic our attendees created!
The CosXPo Cosplay Championships!
We had a fantastic prize line up for our first big competition, we really wanted to set a new bar for the competitive cosplay scene! We had prizes including a place on Artyfakes famous training course, airbrush kits, £££'s of cash, and a showcase video from our FCS!
Free to use custom sets!
We made up two custom sets for CosXPo 2018, one was an enchanted forest theme, and the other a post apocalyptic landscape! They were put to good use throughout the day, and we saw some incredible shots using them as a backdrop.

More great shots around the venue
Space was in abundance around the venue, so there was no worries of hogging spots or people hanging around in the background of your shots!

Attendees gathered on both floors to watch the Cosplay Championships play out in the afternoon. No one was left on their tip toes when we had a balcony to play with.
