In the Cosplay competition the participant is trying to not only look like a character but become one by speaking and moving like one. Like in international competitions, people make small shows where they sing, dance and do everything that according to them would reveal their character the most. This is also the key to be favoured by the audience and judges. The content of the performance is solely up to the participant. Throughout the “Comic Con” history there were times when 10 seconds performance blew everyone minds. Thus, long, short, comic or very difficult in stunts, all the styles of performances have an actual possibility to win the contest.

“Comic Con Baltics” Cosplay contest will have few categories. “Solo”; “Original character” where participants embody the characters they have come up with; “Group performance” where from 2 to 8 participants create a show; “Dance” where, obviously, a solo participant or groups dance.
