Cosplay Workshops 2016 have began!


Only around 100 days left until the third installment of Cyprus Comic Con and the planning procedures for the upcoming event are currently under way with top speed!

Last Saturday (21/05), on the premises of Gamers’ Boulevard in Digenis Akritas Avenue in Nicosia, the second cosplay workshop was held with over 20 aspiring cosplayers participating, while the first introductory workshop a week before, was open for all cosplay enthusiasts and more than 40 people attended! The second workshop was more focused on materials and pattern-making and the participants got to interact with and customise different types of block foam, polystyrene and thermoplastic.

The purpose of these meetings is to aid those interested in participating in this year’s cosplay contest with a fully handmade costume. During the seminar workshops, the participants receive personalised advice and feedback to help them perfect their cosplay costume to the best quality possible. Furthermore, they get to do it in a friendly environment with other fellow cosplay enthusiasts!

The seminars are being taught by top cosplayers of our island (as highlighted in previous CCC cosplay competitions), with Alcaria Cosplay (Gloria), Nyree and Sergei leading the crafting workshops, while additional masterclasses will be held by local professional artists, Crystal and Rakis.

The following workshop on Saturday 28th May is going to be a cosplay makeup masterclass taught by professional makeup artist Crystal Michael. Because of limited availability, all interested parties will need to pre-register their interest through this form and priority will be given to those whose cosplay costume will require makeup.

    When I press the link for the form, it says that I need permissions in order to view it. How do I proceed?

    • Hi Eva, we apologise for the inconvenience, this was only a temporary issue when we first released the form, it should be working fine now! 🙂
