With every kind of glue imaginable, we can offer you a place to sit and a glue gun to get that piece of armor back in place. There’s also a plentiful supply of bobby pins to keep any wig on just right! And don’t forget about the sewing machines for any and all hems that refuse to stay hemmed.

This year, League of Legends will be sponsoring the Cosplay Repair Center by providing supplies as well as doing giveaways throughout the weekend.
