What is Cosplay?
Cosplay is a performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture and a broader use of the term "cosplay" applies to any costumed role-playing in venues apart from the stage.
Favorite sources include manga and anime, comic books and cartoons, video games, and live-action films and television series.

How It Works
ICC Fan Cosplay Contest is a celebration of pop culture. It is a craftsmanship award show with a registration and a stage display. All entries must represent a character or element from the pop culture realm within one of the following 6 categories:
Contestants will have to register on-ground, get their photograph clicked and then battle it out on the Main Stage for first place in their respective categories. Those first place winners will then move on to the Final round to win the Grand Prize of The Cosplay Contest.
Contestants will provide a brief costume description for the emcee to read as they cross the stage and exhibit two to three poses before exiting. No speaking or individualization of music is allowed as pre-selected music will play throughout the event. The time limit per participant on stage is approximately 30 seconds.
