It is a discipline inseparable from Japan Expo: cosplay! Each years, it delights both visitors who get amazed by the creations and the cosplayers who find an exceptional setting for their costumes and always have a good time.
There are two types of major cosplay events at Japan Expo: the cosplay shows and the international contest of the European Cosplay Gathering. They all take place on the big Ichigo stage and are open to all visitors.
- Thursday, July 14, 2022: "Cosplay Show Japan Expo" at 1 p.m.
- Friday July 15, 2022: "Amazing Cosplay Show" at 2.15pm
- Sunday July 17, 2022: French ECG Season 11 Selections at 2:00 p.m.
All the usual themes are allowed on each Cosplay Show as in the previous years. Though, this year, the event wants to celebrate the richness of each cultural universe present at the festival by renaming these Cosplay Shows, but also by adding a special prize for each one in accordance with the represented themes:
Thus there will be a special "Japan Expo" prize for the Thursday show and a special "Amazing" prize for the Friday show. Each prize will reward the most beautiful cosplay in accordance with the theme of the day's show!
