We enjoy seeing cosplays at our festival and will do what we can to make it a nice and attractive place to be for all cosplayers.

Copenhagen Comics loves cosplay

We would like to give cosplayers a 50% discount on our weekend tickets. Both days there are activities for cosplayers. We want to do more to have you with us all weekend. This year, you may be asked at the entrance to explain your character in order to receive the discount. See you in Øksnehallen!

Closed cosplay lounge for cosplayers

Inside the festival, there is an enclosed changing area with a sink and mirror for active cosplayers. You can also take a much-needed rest in the lounge.

What is cosplay?

The word cosplay is a contraction of the words ‘costume’ and ‘play’. It is a creative form of expression where a person dresses up as a character from a comic book, anime, manga, book, movie, TV series, video game or similar.

Cosplayers often put a lot of time and effort into creating or purchasing their costumes and accessories so they can look as realistic and detailed as possible. They can also role-play, take photos and participate in cosplay competitions and events where they can meet other cosplayers and show off their costumes.

When interacting with cosplayers, remember that cosplay does not equal consent. Always ask permission before photographing, recording or even touching a person or their costume.
