Lexicon celebrates Cosplay! We love having attendees who fly their Geek flag proudly whether in full costume or just with their favorite shirt. Anyone who attends Lexicon in any sort of costume will receive a ticket towards a special prize drawing. However, we go well beyond this. For serious cosplayers we offer a fabulous Cosplay contest on Saturday with wonderful prizes. And as part of our Sunday Family Day we also offer a special kids contest on Sunday (see below).
Welcome to LexiCon’s 5th Annual Cosplay Contest!, Saturday at 5:00
A gaming convention without Cosplay is like playing a board game without your friends. Come in costume for the Cosplay Contest or for the whole weekend! Saturday is Cosplay day and even the staff will come dressed up. (For attendees who wish to come just for the contest, Lexicon offers a special Cosplay badge for these attendees.)
