Oh and check out this post to see what booths will be at the event.

 

1. Free Entry

It'd put a smile on anyone's face!

The best part about being a cosplayer this year is that you get free entry for all three days! Entry is for recognisable costumes only, so don’t forget to bring references if you’re unsure.

 

2. Refreshments

We suggest not drinking all 4 cans of Monster at once

If you’re in dire need of a pick-me-up, chug a can of Monster, which is the official energy drink of GameStart 2016! You can also look forward to snacks and other tasty noms without having to leave the hall, how convenient. :3 

 

3. Cosplay Rest Area

Yes, there is merch

Check out some of the cosplay activities we have planned!

This year boasts an expanded cosplay rest area at the back of the hall, right by the toilets! It’s also near the NTP booth, where there will be signings by guest cosplayers Miu and Okageo. Don’t forget to help keep the rest area clean for everyone!

 

 

4. Photobooth

If you’re cosplaying from Overwatch or Touken Ranbu, you definitely want to head to the photobooth by LunarWorks Studio. Expect a beautiful Japan-inspired theme at their photobooth, conveniently located next to the rest area!
