  1. Oooo this is tough 1. Wonder Woman 2. Hidden Figures 3. Bohemian Rhapsody 4.Rise of Skywalker 5. Toy Story 3 6. Inception 7. Black Panther 8. The Imitation Game 9. Inside Out 10. Looper
  2. We’re current in discussions with the venue and if we need to amend the prop rules this will be posted in all the usual places.
  3. Hey guys sorry for taking a while to spot this, I don't get on here that often The Lightsaber should be absolutely fine as its plastic The Power Rangers shield should also be okay - as long as its not 6ft wide - then you'd need a spotter Hope this helps Gerri Cosplay at Showmasters
  4. Only if you want to! We encourage anyone who wants to to enter the Cosplay masquerade, but not everyone feels comfortable going on stage and there will be lots of Cosplayers there who just want to soak up the atmosphere of the convention I would say that you should be prepared for people to ask you for photos though :)
  5. It shouldn't be a problem, but if you do find yourself in that situation speak to the red shirt on the door - just don't leave it 'til 5 minutes before the shoot is due to start!
  6. The biggest consideration when starting out in cosplay is deciding what character you want to portray. It takes time and effort to create cosplay and then you'll be wearing it all day at a Con so if you don't love your character it can take some of the fun out of the whole experience. Being excited about your cosplay character also helps to keep you motivated! Once you've decided what character you want to be collect reference photos so you can work out what skills you will need to replicate the outfit - some costumes require sewing, some require working with foam or Worbla and some need metal or leather work. Once you know these main things you can hunt on YouTube and find Facebook groups to help point you in the right direction! If you follow the Cosplay at Showmasters Facebook page you'll see links to our Cosplay Guest pages who often do tutorials and if you can get to any of our regional events the guests do great panels with tips for cosplayers at any level Hope this helps!

  11. There are a couple of small changes not reflected in the rules on the site. Showmasters staff are no longer able to hold any confiscated props. These would have to be checked into any cloakroom facilities which may incur additional cost In terms of Guns for Cosplay, if your gun looks realistic then it must have an orange / red tip to clearly show it isn't real. This can be done with tape if you don't wish to use paint. We also advise that you keep any realistic looking weapons wrapped up inside your bags until you get to the venue, as some of the public don't get Cosplay and may be concerned if they see you!
  12. You can enter as a team or an individual, you get an answer sheet and have to create a team name. We then go through 15 questions on various fandoms with a few bonus points on offer. If all goes to plan your host doesn't give away any answers *cough* Winchesters *cough* You hand in your answer sheet and while the Cosplay Masquerade is happening these are marked. While we are waiting for the Judges to decide on the Masqerade Winners we give out the answers and award prizes for the overall winner, best (family friendly) Team Name and one other random category that's decided on the day :)
  13. We'll have some images up on the screen of various Cosplays from past events and you are challenged to do your best sketch of one of the images at any point during the time. You then submit your entries at the Cosplay Registration Desk and a winner is chosen for each day who will win a prize (Prizes are confirmed on the day!)
  14. As long as your P90 is not fireable and is kitted out with an orange tip then you will be okay. Please keep in mind that the general public are not always aware of cosplay so we recommend you keep any realistic looking weapons wrapped and stowed until you get to the venue! it would be great to see any Stargate Cosplayers in the Cosplay Zone - maybe a group Cosplay photo shoot is in order!!
