Cosplay Walking Contest

Dear Cosplayer,

this year we will again host our Cosplay Walking Contest at Main Matsuri. No matter if self-made or bought – the audience will vote for their favourite by applause directly after the contest.

Procedure: You present your costume on stage to the audience. You go on stage and give the audience at least ten seconds, maximum one minute, to look at you in your costume. You don't have to speak, but feel free to get the Mirko if you feel like it. All you have to do is walk up and down like at a fashion show. Then leave the stage again and please stay close by. After all the cosplayers who want to take part in this competition have been on stage, there will be a second round. You will come back on stage and now the audience will vote for their favourite cosplayer with applause. We will measure the volume of the respective cheers and the three cosplayers with the loudest applause will receive great prizes!

But don't worry, no one will go away empty-handed in this competition!

As this competition is becoming more and more popular, we ask you to register beforehand at cosplay[at] or spontaneously on site at the "myCostumes" stand.

A maximum of 30 individuals (no groups or couples) can take part.

Friday 18.8.23 3 p.m. Be at Brother Stage at 2:45 p.m.
Sunday 20.8.23 3pm Be at Brother Stage at 2:45pm

There are great prizes to be won!

On the 1.– 3. place each one day ticket for private visitor to the Frankfurter Buchmesse (venue for printed and digital content) and a Goodiebag
