Cosplay

Cosplay is a shortened form of two words ‘costume’ and ‘play’. It is a performance art in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character. Cosplay costumes are often based on comics, manga, anime, cartoons, video games, movies and tv-series.

You’re absolutely free to wear whatever you want! Sure, we find it super fun to see you as a fan fully dressed as your favorite superhero, but just wear the things which are most comfortable for you.

Please read our weapons and props regulations on the website. 

Most cosplayers would love to pose for or with you. Please do ask them first, and always be respectful. 

Heroes Made in Asia is an all-age convention. All costumes must include a proper amount of skin coverage for public display, as we will have children present. When in doubt please contact Hype Creations via info@hype-creations.com or via their social media channels.

Yes you can! There are dressing rooms available where you can complete your outfit.

We will let you know if you’ve made it into Cosplay Contest as timely as possible. As we get a lot of registrations this may take a little while. However, should you think something went wrong, please send us an email via info-made-in-asia@easyfairs.com. 

Heroes Made in Asia focusses on costumes within the theme of the convention. This means that the character you represent must come from Anime, Manga, games or pop culture of Asian origin. We’re pretty lenient on this, and will approve a character from Metal Gear Solid or Street Fighter, but not a Captain America, for example. If in doubt, please contact the Hype Creations team for details.

You may participate in a fan art based costume under specific conditions. The reference you use must come from a legitimate artist and must clearly show the character and costume. This is important because we need to be able to hold your cosplay against the reference, and based on that we will determine how well you have worked out the concept. After receiving your reference, the Hype Creations team will indicate if it is okay to enter the contest. The verdict of the Hype Creations team is final.

This depends on the prize. If you have participated with your costume in a preliminary or international competition and have earnt prizes there, then certainly not. In most other cases you have. In case of doubt you can always ask Hype Creations.
