introducing cosplay workshop panels

Embark on a transformative journey at Sunshine City Scare with our innovative addition to the panel lineup – the “Cosplay Workshops.” These 1-2 hour sessions, curated by seasoned cosplay experts, offer a hands-on and immersive experience, providing attendees with invaluable insights and skills straight from the pros. It’s not merely a panel; it’s a unique opportunity to meet, connect, and learn from some of the most influential figures in the cosplay community.

Imagine delving into the intricacies of foam crafting for props, perfecting advanced makeup techniques tailored for horror cosplays, or honing your sewing and tailoring skills for costume perfection – all within a personalized and interactive setting. Our Cosplay Workshops bring you face-to-face with the expertise that breathes life into iconic characters. This is your chance to elevate your cosplay game, making it an unforgettable and enriching experience at Sunshine City Scare.

list of workshops coming soon

A full list of cosplay workshops and instructors will be available soon. Some of the workshop topics will include:

  • Mastering Foam Crafting for Props
  • Advanced Makeup Techniques for Horror Cosplays
  • Sewing and Tailoring Tips for Costume Perfection
  • Creating Realistic and Lightweight Armor
  • Wig Styling and Maintenance Secrets
  • Stage and Cosplay Posing for Photography

how it works

The workshop is free, like other panels at the event. However, there are two significant differences from other panels: First, you must pre-register (seating is limited). Second, you must pay in advance for the workshop supplies, which are an additional cost. Cosplay Workshop Supply Kits will range in price from $25-$100, depending upon the workshop.
