Cosplay Meetups Application

Wanna organize an epic Marvel photoshoot? Stage a Batman vs Joker brawl? Start a Deadpool conga line? Connect with new fandom-obsessed friends? Then you’re in the right place!

Please note all meetups are submitted and hosted by fans. Awesome Con does not directly organize any cosplay meetups.

The Walter E Washington Convention Center is a big place, but we have one official photoshoot area (location to be determined). The deadline to apply is Wednesday, April 19, 2023. Applicants will be notified of the status of their application by Wednesday, April 26, 2023. If you have any cosplay meetup questions, please reach out to

Make it snazzy! It should sound exciting! You want people to go, right!?
Do you have a Facebook event or other website with more specifics? Can fans email you or text you for more info?
Please note that your date and time may need to be revised based on demand. Your meetup should be around 45 minutes long and start at the top of the hour.
