The Edmonton Expo Replica Contest

The Star Wars Replica Competition challenges makers to recreate an iconic Star Wars prop or costume piece! Whether it's Han's blaster, Kylo's lightsaber, Padme's iconic headdresses or your favourite item from the Star Wars Universe, this competition asks fans to focus in on one specific item instead of a head-to-toe cosplay look. Items can be from any Star Wars film or television property. Registration is open until 11:59pm MT Saturday September 10th. Replica items will be on display at the convention centre for judges and fans to view and vote on from 12:00pm - 5:00pm on Saturday September 17th.

The Replica Competition is a separate competition from the Edmonton Expo Cosplay Craftsmanship Cup. Cosplayers wishing to compete in both contests must complete each contest's individual registration.
