COSPLAY MEET-UPS

How do Cosplay Meet-ups work?

  1. First, make sure you RSVP to our official Cosplay Meet-Ups Facebook Event Page and our official Cosplay Facebook Group.
  2. Then, watch for our official Cosplay Meet-ups poll posted into that event page and group. This is where you can suggest and vote for your favorite fandoms to make it to the official schedule.
  3. Take some time to prepare your cosplay while you’re waiting for the schedule to be announced.
  4. The schedule will be posted closer to the event; late August to early September is our estimate. When the schedule is live you’ll be able to view it online on the FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ Mobile App and Official Schedule, and printed in the Cosplay Meet-Ups Area and any information booth.
  5. Show up 5 minutes before each scheduled fandom meet-up. When it is time, Volunteers and Media Team will direct cosplayers for their scheduled Cosplay Meet-up photo shoot.
  6. Photos will be posted to the Cosplay Meet-ups album on our official Facebook page.

FanX Cosplay

Hall of Fame

The FanX Cosplay Hall of Fame is a way for FanX to honor cosplayers who not only exhibit exceptional talent at their craft but also give back to the community.

Not only does it take hours of work to create their stunning outfits, but they then go the extra mile for charity work and helping in ways that only they can. We know that there are many people that do amazing things for others besides just being known for cosplaying and we want to give them a spotlight.
