Cosplay

We believe that gaming and cosplay go hand-in-hand. Celebrate with EGLX.

EGLX presents, “The Cosplay Lounge”, an open-concept area in the centre of the convention floor. Here, cosplayers and non-cosplayers can mingle, rest, chat, and learn more about the art of cosplay. We aim to inspire, educate, showcase, and celebrate cosplay through panels, workshops, demonstrations, and challenges for costume enthusiasts of all ages.
