We Welcome Costume & Play

Here @ Warped Con HQ we have our fair share of fanatical Cosplayers on the payroll but we thought to give our first convention and our Cosplay guests the best experience we can we should get a little help so we have asked Cosplay legends "Costume & Play" to plan, run and organise a full schedule of events over the 2 days and you will not believe what they have produced.  If you're a Cosplayer then you REALLY do not want to miss this....
