Love Cosplay? So do we.

Heard of but not sure what is Cosplay? Cosplay is short for Costume Roleplay, it’s the subculture of dressing up as characters from manga, anime, video games, comic books, graphic novels, movies, anything pop culture – the sky’s the limit!
Cosplay has been a huge part of the GAMMA.CON community since the beginning. The ACT/Southern NSW region has a big cosplay community and they love to come together at GAMMA.CON to display their passion and love for crafting and dressing up.
From beginners with duct tape swords and cardboard shields to professional cosplayers who befit the character so well that they have won awards nationally and internationally. Regardless of your experience, budget or inspiration; all costumed efforts are welcome at GAMMA.CON.
There's the Cosplay Competition and Showcase (details below) our Cosplay guests and a whole range of events in our program at Cosplay Central
