*Cosplay Contest Information:*
Cosplay Contest form: COMING SOON
One of the most popular activities associated with Comic Cons worldwide is cosplay: dressing up as your favorite character from a movie, book, or video game. During Preble County Comic-Con®, we’ll decide on the best costumes for two different age groups: 0- 13 years and 14 years and older. There will be prizes for first place, runner-up, and honorable mention for each age group. You can pre-register at the Eaton library by filling out a Cosplay Contest Registration Form. Costumes from all genres are acceptable, and original characters are welcome, too. Only handmade or hand-assembled costumes will be accepted. You can use pre-styled/modified accessories such as wigs, shoes, and props, but we strongly encourage handmade accessories.
This is your chance to show off your handiwork! Contestants are encouraged, though not required, to bring a reference photo or drawing of their character for the judges. Actual weapons and other items considered dangerous by the library are prohibited. All costumes must follow the library’s code of conduct (such as no nudity or offensive language), as this is an event for all ages.
*Fanart Submission Information:*
Kids, teens, and adults are invited to submit fan art for our Community Art Gallery during Comic Con. Fanart from all genres, including anime, books, movies, or TV shows, are acceptable. Each piece of art must be library appropriate. All ages are welcome to submit, and art must be submitted to the Eaton Branch Library for approval by May 31. Artists can pick up their creations beginning on Monday, June 5.
