WonderCon@Home Cosplay Challenge


We know how much time, hard work, and dedication goes into making your cosplay the best it can be. And while we can't be together to snap photos of our favorites in front of the fountain, we can certainly share them online with each other!

The WonderCon@Home Cosplay Challenge kicks off on Friday, March 26, 2021, at 9:00 AM (PDT) and ends Saturday, March 27, 2021, at 5:00 PM (PDT).

Participation is easy! Simply snap a few photos and share your cosplay via Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter during the submission dates listed above. Make sure to tag us and include  #WonderConAtHomeCosplay so we don't miss your entry. You'll also need to print out and wear your  WonderCon@Home  badge in the photo. All ages and skill levels are encouraged to participate. We want to see your pets too!

The not-so-fun stuff: Cosplay creations must be family-friendly. No nude or lewd images. No advertisements or promotions. Images only, no videos, please. 

Keep your eyes peeled for our favorites (and more!) shared on the official WonderCon website  starting  Monday, March 29, 2021. Click here to view our WonderCon@Home 2020 Cosplay Challenge gallery.    

Last but not least, our favorite participants will be selected from the following categories: 

  • Best  Mashup 
  • Best Use of Household Items 
  • Best Original Character 
  • Most In-Character / Best Likeness (Canon Character) 
  • Best Classic Comic Character (before 1985) 
  • Best Modern Comic Character (after 1985) 

Good luck, we can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!
