If there’s one thing you can count on at Hyper Japan, it’s checking out all the incredible cosplay! Cosplay is the art of dressing up and visually becoming the character of their choice, regardless of how the costume is made. Handmade, shop-bought, cobbled together from knick-knacks in your garage – anything goes!


Here are the need to know events that will be taking place during the Christmas Market:



COSParade is a non-competitive masquerade where visitors can show off their hard work to an appreciative audience. Don’t feel down if the Naruto next to you has spikier hair than yours, or if the Pikachu onstage has actual lightning shooting from his tail! It’s all about that sense of fun and excitement when you see yourself in the mirror, and the satisfaction of interacting with others whilst decked out as your favourite character!

As if that’s not enough, our guests LADY BABY will be making a special appearance during Saturday’s Second Session!

Cosplay Guests:

Veteran cosplayers will be in attendance as cosplay guests who’ll be running workshops to share their skills, and some will be selling their hand-made accessories to help you complete your own character outfits.

Have you been working hard on your outfit for the event or are you intrigued to check out the workshops and find out more? Let us know in the comments below!
