Cosplay shows


A new format, where the focus lies on impressive costumes and the people who made them. Less show, more craftsmanship.


The focus here is split on costume and act. Everyone with a theatrical bone in their body can indulge themselves on this day.


A few times each day, cosplayers of the same fandom gather in the center of Hall 1 and march together on the mini-catwalk. It’s perfect for photo opportunities and everyone will get to see you at your best. No prizes, just fun!

All you need to do for this one is show up at the right time in front of the Cosplay Hall, at the catwalk. You can’t miss it.

In the FACTS Fan Village, loads of different fan clubs get together to share their passions with you, often in the form of cosplay and awesome picture moments in nostalgic sets and with amazingly detailed props.

Mandalorians, Jedi, Sith, DC Comics characters, Disney princesses, Star Trek, Harry Potter students, you can see it all here.

Cosplay is not consent

A comic con can be exciting and overwhelming if you’ve never been to one before, or don’t visit frequently. The costumes, the atmosphere, the activities,… It’s a godsend for a fan of movies, series, games & comics and it’s ideal for an unforgettable day with a camera.

However, it is important to not to go overboard. Every person in cosplay is exactly just that: a person with their own feelings, wishes and boundaries, who just happens to wear a costume.

So it is very important to lay down some ground rules for interactions with cosplayers and other FACTS fans in the form of the #CosplayIsNotConsent concept, so that everyone can have a great, care-free time together. We’ve broken it down into an easy to remember set of guidelines.
