Cosplay Pageant

Inspired by drag pageants, this event is a QCAC staple and a must see! The focus of this event is on presentation and performance, so purchased and crafted cosplays are equally welcome. Judged by a panel of drag queens, on Saturday night* contestants will walk the runway, take part in a Q&A, and will lip sync for the honor of wearing the QCAC Crown! This event is restricted to 20 contestants and requires pre-registration, though additional spots in the pageant may be available if pre-registered contestants drop or fail to check-in. Again, pre-registration is required for this event and is currently LIVE.

*Keep in mind that times and dates noted in the official rules are tentative and subject to change! Please consult the official convention schedule when it goes live and keep an eye on the email you used for registration for communication from our cosplay department. Thank you!
