Calling all cosplayers – NYCC's Cosplay Central is taking over the River Pavilion for the first time ever!

Cosplay Central, a new show feature dedicated to all things cosplay, is taking over the fourth floor River Pavilion at the Javits Center and will feature four days of cosplay fun.

Come attend a cosplay workshop to learn new techniques and discuss building your own cosplay at the Cosplay Central Stage Presented by Imgur,  grab an autograph from our featured cosplay guest, and check out demos and activities with international fan organizations like 501st Legion and the Empire Saber Guild. Don’t forget to take advantage of our cosplay changing room to avoid holding up the bathroom lines.  Whether you’ve been cosplaying for years or this is your first time dressing up, you won’t want to miss out on Cosplay Central at NYCC!
