Custom Built Sets

We know that the weather isn't always on our side, and people want something more unique than the inside of a convention hall for a backdrop. So we work with local talent to create unique, custom-built sets so that you can show off your cosplays in style.

Set Design for CosXPo 2022

New for 2022: Sci-Fi Portal!

We've made a brand new indoor set for all your sci-fi and cyberpunk cosplay photography needs. Step into the portal - a futuristic concept designed by Cat&Crown Artwork.

The set will feature a unique sci-fi backdrop as well as a portal gates expertly crafted by The Hudson Forge.

Whether you're a galactic bounty hunter, or a superhero setting out to save the multi-verse - this one is for you!

Japanese Cosplay Photography Set at CosXPo

Japanese Classroom

A popular set from 2019 will be returning for another year! Our Japanese classroom, designed by Tom Rushmer, was the perfect setting for anime cosplays.

Cosplayers can rearrange the chairs and tables to get the perfect shot, like they've stepped straight out of the animation.

Explore the Grounds

The surrounding grounds of Reading University are perfect for cosplay photography and capturing a variety of themes. From the stunning Harris Gardens, to the industrial architecture and interesting woodland.

Take a look at some incredible shots taken previously at our event:
