Assembly Summer 2024

Do you have a stunning cosplay just waiting to be showcased to a big audience without the pressure of competing? If you answered yes, the Cosplay Walk-on is just the thing for you!

Cosplay Walk-on is a new addition to Assembly’s program, where cosplayers can showcase their costumes on the Assembly Main Stage either individually or in groups!

Cosplay Walk-on is not a competition, but an opportunity to celebrate cosplay regardless of if the costume is self-made, bought or modified. Participants register to the Cosplay Walk-on with a separate registration form before the event. Each participant must have entry to Assembly either by buying a visitor ticket, computer place or by volunteering as an organizer at the event.

The Cosplay Walk-on is held as part of the Cosplay Competition on the Assembly Main Stage.
