Cosplay

 

Cosplay Photo Area

No con is completed without a little bit of cosplay!

What is cosplay?
Cosplay, or costume play, is where participants dress up as a specific character and do performance art often through acting like the character. (However, the acting part isn't necessary for being a cosplayer.) 

To help you show off your cosplaying talents and costuming awesomeness, we will have a designated photo shoot area just for you (and all of your/your character's fans!)

Basic Cosplay Guidelines

  • Please keep in mind that this is a family event, so keep your cosplay PG-13.
  • If your cosplay has weapons as part of the costume, please note that REALISTIC weapons are not permitted unless they are tagged with orange paint.
  • More guidelines to come!
Pokémon™ Go Meet Up

Hang out with other trainers at our Pokémon™ Go Meet Up!

We will be placing lures out for the entire day starting at 10 a.m. so you can start catching all of your favorite 'mons! We will also be having Pokémon™-themed give-a-ways!

(Shhh...and you didn't hear this from me, but we will also be placing the new lures too!)

Meet other trainers, trade, battle and come out to represent your team! 

 

Movie under the Stars (Rek/Kon edition)

To finish off the con right we're working with Outdoor Recreation to bring you a fun movie night!

Rev up your Sugar Rush engines and join us in watching (and enjoying all of the fun easter eggs) the movie, Wreck-It Ralph (Rated PG).

S-U-G-A-R Jump into your racing car say SUGAR RUSH! SUGAR RUSH! (Hey!)
