a.k.a. “Costume Play”
Cosplay at the Anime Washington will fall into three areas. Adults having fun, Kids having fun, and serious Cosplayers competing for fame, glory, and prizes.
We strongly encourage attendees to dress as their favorite characters during Anime Washington. Whether your favorite character is from a cartoon, movie, television show, comic book, book, historical character, or anywhere else we want you to have fun with it!

Cosplay is designed to be fun and interactive; however, the safety of our attendees and the comfort of our cosplayers is paramount and will not come second. Please help us make this a great event by adhering to our policies and regulations. We look forward to seeing what everyone has!
Cosplay Contest Prizes
Anime Washington is putting together a fun and lucrative prize pool for this year’s cosplay contest. Prizes will include cash, tickets, gift certificates, and other goodies.
Anime Washington will provide a location that allows a spot for cosplayers to rest, socialize, and fellowship with fellow cosplayers. The area will be for a photo or two with friends, new friends, and even a home base to assist each other with costume needs. There will be areas for meetups, and take the all-important group photos.
A highlight for many cosplayers, and for other event attendees, is the different cosplay contests and the gatherings of like costumes. Stay tuned to our social media and website for updates and meetup information.
