CosXPo 2023

1 & 2 Apr 2023, 11:00-18:00

CosXPo is a UK event like no other that focuses on the art of cosplay and photography.

After three successful events we're now into our fourth year and can't wait to bring the Cosplay community another great weekend of creating, learning, and mastering new skills.

CosXPo aims to provide a platform for knowledge exchange with industry professionals and cosplayers who are master of their field. We're here to help you level up your crafting skills, meet new people and have a weekend like never before.

    What's On at CosXPo?

    There's lots to do at CosXPo, like hands-on workshops, live demos, entertainment, talks and panels from professionals in the industry.

    Our workshops are aimed at anyone from those wanting to develop their skills. From cosplay veterans to those starting out for the first time.

    From our CosXPo Pub Quiz, to putting our Senpais to the test in a Cosplay Speed Challenge, we also have plenty of entertainment for you to enjoy.

    And if you're up for the challenge, why not enter the CosXPo Championships to showcase your amazing creations and win some epic prizes.


    CosXPo has loads of great photography opportunities for cosplayers and photographers alike.

    We know that the weather isn't always on our side, and people want something more unique than the inside of a convention hall for a backdrop. So we work with local talent to create unique, custom-built sets so that you can show off your cosplays in style.

    The surrounding grounds of Reading University are perfect for cosplay photography and capturing a variety of themes. From the stunning Harris Gardens, to the industrial architecture and interesting woodland. This is your chance to explore!
