The MEGACON Orlando Replica Competition

The MEGACON Orlando Replica Competition challenges cosplayers to recreate a prop or costume piece to the best of their abilities, focusing on one specific item instead of a head-to-toe cosplay look. The replica pieces will be on display from 11:30 AM - 3:30 PM on Sunday, February 4 at the Orange County Convention Center.

Our team of experienced judges will select the Best Novice Maker and the Best Experienced Maker. Attendees of MEGACON will vote for their Fan Favorite.

Please read all rules and regulations below before registering.
