Cosplay at Oddmall? There’s cosplay at Oddmall?

Heck yeah there’s cosplay at Oddmall! A significant amount, in fact. Come visit our friends from Northeast Ohio Ghostbusters, the 501st, Rebel Legion, Mandalorian Mercs, Heroes Alliance, and an entire horde of incredibly talented costumers, fans, and costumer-fans! Come in costume. Nobody will laugh (unless your costume is funny). Oddmall is all about sharing creativity with like-minded peeps. If you can’t dress as your favorite Gravity Falls character here where can you?

Is there a costume contest?

Yes, of course there is. The Oddmall Costume Contest, which is FREAKIN’ LEGENDARY, will take place at 3pm on Saturday and also at 3pm on Sunday. That’s correct, we have TWO costume contests and participants are invited to enter both of them. It’s open to anybody in a costume, with multiple categories and prizes and all sorts of exciting jazz. Registration begins when Oddmall opens, so come early and make sure you reserve your spot in the contest.

Who will be judging the costume contest?

Oh, don’t you worry. We have a bunch of TOP SECRET costume contest judges lined up. We can’t tell you who they are, though (because it’s TOP SECRET).

Do you have, like, some sort of super cool MCs lined up to host the thing?

We sure do! Gandersnitch the Goblin usually hosts the costume contests. If he’s not available we have a stable of awesome entertainers clamoring for the honor.

How do I get involved?

Just show up in costume. If you want to be in the contest, make sure you register at Cosplay HQ before the contest begins (the earlier the better). Contestants must be registered by 2pm.

I bet you have some really great cosplay staffers, don’t you?

You better believe it, Buster. Jessie and Vicky are on the job, on the ball, and off the hook!
