Cosplay Contest


When TopCon Pop Expo first took place in 2014 Cosplay Competition was one of the first events that was planned for the fans. Cosplayer’s came out in droves and a tradition was started. Each and every year Cosplayer’s advance their art and the Fans have the privilege of seeing that art showcased at TopCon. This year is no different.

The Midwest is home to some of the finest Cosplayer’s in the World and our region of the Midwest can proudly boast that we have the best of the best; true hero’s of Cosplay. As Cosplayer’s strut their creations across the Visit Topeka Stage at 3:00 pm for the Pre-Judging with our critical and insightful Judges. Then at 4:00 pm the the Cosplayer’s showoff their Creations for the TopCon Fans. Then comes the moment everyone has waited breathlessly for over the past 365 Days; the Trophy Presentation Crowning the Best of The Best.

This years categories include Best Over-All Adult Male Cosplay, Best Over-All Adult Female Cosplay, Best Over-All Teen Cosplay, Best Over-All Child Cosplay and Honorable Mention which will be picked by the Fans. One of the highlights of the Cosplay Competition each and every year is the presentation of the TopCon Pop Expo Hall of Fame Inductee. Past Inductees include The Enigma (2014), The Red Dalek (2015), Barb “Mama Bot” Haze (2016) and Neal “Agent Stan” Haze (2017), Martin “Kodi” Peterson (2018) and Kevin Harris (2019). Who will be this years Honoree? We are not telling until the moment of truth.
