What is CosXPo all about?

CosXPo is a UK event that focuses on building crafting skills, photography skills and celebrating the art of cosplay.

The team behind CosXPo are all frequent attendees of events throughout the year. We're all self-proclaimed nerds and love games, film, comics, cartoons - but we all have one thing in common - we love cosplay! So we decided to make an event which focuses on all things cosplay, photography collaboration, crafting skills, knowledge sharing, and technique mastering!

We're now planning our 4th event for 2023 and can't wait to make this year bigger and better than before.

Celebrating Cosplay and Learning New Crafting Skills

There's so much to do at CosXPo. If you're completely new to cosplay we have some great beginner workshops to get you started. For seasoned veterans we have more advanced workshops and panels, as well as a chance to compete in our cosplay championships.

Most importantly you can meet likeminded people and have fun!

We also have a dedicated Discord server where we host regular crafting nights, gaming events and have dedicated channels for cosplay tips (and even cute pets). A link to this is available once you've joined our social group.
