Cosplay Catwalk


Admire all the beautiful Cosplayers during the Cosplay Catwalk on the Main Stage or participate in the show by yourself. The Cosplay Catwalk takes place before the ‘big’ Cosplay Contest. In this stage program, cosplayers show their outfit to the audience in an accessible and accessible way.  

Cosplayers will be on stage for a short moment and will do a so called walk on – walk off. In this way the participants rotate on stage to show their cosplay. Do you want to show your cosplay to the audience on the Main Stage, but don’t want to participate in the “big” Cosplay Contest yet? Then the Cosplay Catwalk is perfect for you! The Cosplay Catwalk is powered by Hype Creations.

We are sorry to hear that many people were unable to register for the Cosplay Catwalk. HDCC has looked at your feedback and with much effort and in cooperation with Hype Creations, we managed to secure a small number of additional spots for each block of the Cosplay Catwalk. These spots will open at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 7.
