The Entertainment Hall is the place to celebrate cosplay, gaming, and art at Anime Expo!
The Entertainment Hall is where the fun of Anime Expo begins! Take a photo of your cosplay in one of 10+ Photo Sets, or check out the Community Stage, which features a variety of performances and tournament finals all throughout the weekend. Want to show off your video game prowess against other attendees? Sign up for our eGaming tournaments. Also located in the Entertainment Hall is our Cosplay Repair Area, where all attendees can go for help with and supplies for emergency costume fixes.
Large walls of paper are available for attendees to leave their mark at Anime Expo.
Breaking any of these rules may result in censorship by staff volunteers, badge confiscation, and/or immediate removal from the convention.
We invite artists each year to provide live art throughout the Anime Expo weekend. The finished pieces are usually available for sale at the end of the weekend. In recent years, we’ve worked with the Chalk Twins, who create large-scale pieces featuring different anime series. 2015 artists are TBD
Back by popular demand, our Cosplay Sets have grown in number! Each set will encompass a wide variety of genres from both anime and video games for all cosplayers to enjoy. Bring your amazing cosplays and a camera to make some memories!
Every cosplayer has experienced the horror of a ripped seam or a broken wing in their time attending conventions. For years Anime Expo has provided a way for you to fix any snafu that may happen and this year is no exception! 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.
Anime Expo is proud to present the newest addition to our Cosplay Area – The Cosplay Senpai! Our Cosplay Senpai are local and global cosplayers that promote the fun, unity, and acceptance of the Cosplay community. Through their amazing cosplays and positive attitudes we hope to convey the expression and excitement that the hobby can bring to everyone. Come by the Cosplay Set Area during the convention to meet and greet them!
eGaming offers you the opportunity to compete with other gamers head to head in some of the best games available on the market, as well as tried and true favorites.
