Just For Fun


The kids cosplay parade is a great way for our littlest cosplayers to get into the cosplay spirit! Once the parade begins, kids can go on stage either on their own, in a group or for those who are either too little or too shy, with a guardian. All entrants in the kids cosplay parade will receive a special certificate to treasure. Come and see the tiniest and cutest cosplayers all at the one event!


The Cosplay Parade is a great event showcasing the talent of cosplayers at Oz Comic-Con. It gives everyone the chance to get up on stage and strut their stuff. You can enter this as an individual or as a group and both handmade and store bought costumes are eligible to participate. This event is a great way to build confidence for those wishing to enter competitions in the future!
