What to Expect

FanimeCon Cosplay Gathering is still open to more submissions but they need to be made before April 25th. It also should be noted that this list only includes cosplay gatherings that are officially organized by the FanimeCon staff. There could be unofficial cosplay gatherings in the area but fans will have to network if they wish to find them.

Cosplay gatherings are one of several events set to take place during FanimeCon 2023. There will also be panels and special guests. Among the guests are Cherami Leigh, Kyle McCarley, cosplayers Aicosu, Bandai Namco Collectables Hobby host Linda Le, and anime historian Gilles Poitras. Additional details about the special events will also be made available in the future. 

FanimeCon 2023 will take place during the Memorial Day Weekend at the San Jose Convention Center along with the surrounding locations. It is one of the largest fan organized anime conventions in North America. Check out our coverage of last year’s event to have an idea of what to expect.
