Cosplay World Masters UK Qualifiers - Sunday @ 3pm
Please note that unlike the Cosplay Masquerade (which also takes place on both Saturday and Sunday at 3pm - meaning a total of THREE cosplay contests for this LAGC), the places are CAPPED at 30. So you MUST signup beforehand to guarantee your place - we will only allow signups on the day if we don't get 30 people showing.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
We shall be updating this as they come
Q - Do I have to make a new costume to enter?
A - No, you may use a pre-existing costume provided it's 60% minimum hand-made and you've not entered it into CWM before.
Q - I'm a cosplay guest/crew, can I enter?
A - Yes. Only people who may not enter will be the three judges.
Q - I want to enter this and the Cosplay Masquerade on the Sunday, may I and are there any stipulations?
A - If you place in the top 5, and so get a certificate, then you may not enter the same costume into the Sunday Masquerade. We recommend having two costumes if you believe this is a possibility to be safe.
Q - Can we enter as a group?
A - No, it has to be single. The Sunday masquerade will be for groups.
Q - Can I put in an application without having made the costume yet?
A - Yes, you can put the app through without a costume yet - just try and be as detailed as possible on how you will construct it (this will help you). Once you've made it, if you wish, you can send us a revised application with more complete construction process details and images (again this is optional).
Q - For the prize, what's covered to Portugal?
A - Your flight and hotel for three nights. You'll also be given an assistant to help you on the day. Free entry to Iberanime where the finals are taking place is also covered.
