gamescom cosplay village


Bigger, calmer, cozier – after the rush last year the cosplay village 2017 will experience a few changes. The own area for cosplayers will be placed in hall 10.2 this year. That means significantly more space and a quiet position.

Next to attractions like the cosplay stage or the drawer’s garden, professional supervised photo booths are available to have your costumes photographed for free. The most impressive cosplays will be honored within the ‚daily cosplay treat‘ with exciting prizes.

Comfortable seating invite to relax and chill out and also for the culinary well-being is taken care of, because this year there will be an own catering area directly in the village.

Thus there is nothing in the way of a cosy gettogether.

We are looking forward to see you!
