Cosplay Skills Faire

Ai-Kon has long been a supporter of the vibrant cosplay community in Winnipeg, and each year we are proud to witness our local talent reach new heights! We see incredible skill growth in our attendees, volunteers and staff! In hopes of further fostering this interest, inspiring new cosplayers, and teaching all skill levels new tricks, Winterfest 2018 will be introducing a new Cosplay Skills Faire for costume artists to share their knowledge with the community!

Ai-Kon is looking for talented and experienced individuals help demonstrate and exhibit a variety of cosplay skills at Winterfest 2018. Ai-Kon will provide half a table space (2’ x 4’) for experts to showcase and or demonstrate these skills at Winterfest. We are looking for individuals to provide personal pieces as examples of specific techniques or skills in their repertoire.
