Fandom Fest Fashion Show 2021

Join us for a virtual cosplay Fashion Show!

Just because we can’t walk the runway doesn’t mean we can’t show off our best cosplay!  This year we’ll be hosting an all-virtual event.  Costumes from all genres/ages are welcome! (As always, please keep costumes family-friendly)

  • Kids (through 5th grade)
  • Teens (6th to 12th grade)
  • Adults
  • Pets
  • Fan Favorite (voting will take place on our Facebook and Instagram channels)

Prizes baskets will be award to each category winner with fun fandom swag and a $25 Michaels gift card.  And we’re not forgetting the pets – the winner of this category will win a $25 Petsmart gift card and a basket of toys!
