Film Cosplay Village gamescom 2018

The cosplay village will move into Hall 5.1 and thus find an even better place on the gamescom exhibition grounds. The gastronomic offer and the many opportunities for relaxation and lingering will remain.

The popular cosplay stage remains the heart of the cosplay village.

The drawers' garden will be rectified to a drawers' alley and we are planning professional photo points again, where you can be photographed free of charge with or without cosplay in elaborate, cinematic decorations.

In addition, we are working on a few surprises and innovations to make the cosplay village 2019 even more interactive and exciting.
