Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned vet, there’s something for everyone at this convention.

First, take some time to explore the convention hall. There are lots of great stalls selling all sorts of geeky goodies, so be sure to stock up on souvenirs. If you’re looking for some new clothes, check out the cosplay runway show – you might just find your next costume.

CosDay² is also home to some amazing panels and workshops. This is a great opportunity to learn more about your favorite fandom, whether it be comics, video games or TV shows. You could also learn something new and pick up some great skills – even if your dream is to become a world-famous cosplayer, the panels can help you get there.

Of course, no convention would be complete without celebrities, and CosDay² has its fair share. Some of their past guests include Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, comic book artist Jim Cheung and actor Kevin Conroy – who voiced the character of Batman in the 90s cartoon series.

CosDay² gives you a chance to meet some of your favorite stars and get their autographs – and if it’s your first time meeting them, this is a great opportunity to ask for a selfie.

Don’t forget that CosDay² is full of talented cosplayers with who you can take photos. There will be a designated photo area where you can meet up and take some cool shots, so make sure you don’t miss out.

Tips for Making the Most of Your Experience at CosDay²

Attending CosDay²
CosDay²: The Cosplay Convention You Don’t Want To Miss 7

CosDay² is hosted in Kassel, Germany. The event features cosplayers from around the world who come together to meet one another, attend panels and workshops, and compete in costume contests.

If you’re planning on attending CosDay² this year, there are a few things you can do to make your experience even better:

Make your costume early.

Most cosplayers try to finish their costumes months in advance of the convention, which means you should also start work on yours as soon as possible.

If you’re not sure how to make it yourself, there are tutorials online that can help you get started. You may need to take some workshops before the event as well, so you’ll want to plan for this as soon as possible.

Get a hotel room.

When you register for the convention, be sure to ask about the hotel discounts available. You can save a lot of money this way and have an easier time finding a place to stay since many people share rooms with friends at conventions like these.

Find out what events are happening at the convention.

The schedule tends to be pretty packed, so you’ll want to make sure you don’t miss anything. Also, consider attending panels that are relevant to your interests or helpful for your cosplay plans.

Meet people online before the convention.

This is a good way to socialize with friends and other attendees before you even get to the event. Make sure everyone knows about your plans and post images of your work online so others can see what you’re doing.

Make a detailed schedule for the convention itself.

This way, you won’t get overwhelmed trying to do too much or miss important events that interest you. You can plan out your days in advance, making sure to go to the most important panels or workshops.

Keep your gear in one place.

Find a bag for all of your cosplay items so you can easily transport everything with you. This helps prevent accidents and makes it easier to carry around your props, so you don’t have to worry about them being lost or broken.

Bring a cosplay repair kit.

You need to keep your costume in good condition over the course of the convention, especially if you’re going to be participating in competitions. This means bringing extra zippers and thread with you so you can quickly fix small problems as they arise without missing all of the fun things happening at the event.

Add accessories to your costume.

CosDay² is known for its talented cosplayers, so it’s helpful to bring accessories to catch the judges’ eyes when you’re in competition.

For example, if you’re cosplaying as Batman or Superman, bring a Batarang or something similar with you, so the judges notice what an excellent job you’ve done creating this character.

Bring snacks and water with you.

This is useful if you’re wearing heavy costumes or can’t take breaks easily throughout the day to eat meals.

It’s also wise to bring some cash with you so that, if there are any issues at the convention, you can buy food elsewhere instead of waiting in line for a meal at the venue.

Make a list of emergency contacts.

In case you get separated from your friends or have any kind of emergency at the convention, you should have their contact information on hand so you can reach them quickly if necessary. You should also write down directions to the hotel and other important locations, so you don’t get lost when looking for them.

Let people know your plans.

Not everyone plans to do the same things, so it’s wise to make sure you let people know what you’re doing at all times. There are more than 1,000 people expected to attend this year. If someone is accompanying you on your trip, be sure to tell them where you’re going and who else will be there.

Make sure your costumes are light and comfortable.

You’ll be wearing them for hours at a time, so you need to make sure they aren’t restrictive. If you’re worried about overheating, bring a fan with you or wear an undershirt, so your skin doesn’t get as hot as the rest of the outfit.
