Stars of Cosplay

(Formerly Mr. and Miss. Otafest)

Calgary Telus Convention Centre

May 21 - 22, 2022

Requirements

Be in cosplay, have your photo taken, wear a sign.

You do not have to have made your cosplay.

Otafest staff and volunteers are not allowed to enter.

Inanimate objects, such as plush, drawings, or objects, cannot enter the contest.

Animals, including service animals, cannot enter the contest.

Format

Come to the sign up desk on Sunday (check the schedule for registration times) and let us know your name, character, and which team/group you wish to enter.

We’ll give you a sign with your number on it and take your photo for the slide show, then you’re done! Voting will take place after registration has finished back at the registration desk.

People can watch the slide show, see their favorite in person or choose them from the voting list. We’d encourage people to see their favorite cosplay in person before committing to vote for them but it’s entirely up to each voter.

At the end of the voting period the votes will be tallied and the top 5 entries from each category will be posted at the voting desk, in the cosplay headquarters room, and in the cosplay repair room. Winners will be announced at Closing Ceremonies.
