introducing cosplay workshop panels

Embark on a transformative journey at Anime St. Pete with our innovative addition to the panel lineup – the “Cosplay Workshops.” These 1-2 hour sessions, curated by seasoned cosplay experts, offer a hands-on and immersive experience, providing attendees with invaluable insights and skills straight from the pros (and lots of Q&A time). It’s not merely a panel; it’s a unique opportunity to meet, connect, and learn from some of the most influential figures in the cosplay community.

Imagine delving into the intricacies of foam crafting for props, perfecting advanced makeup techniques tailored for anime cosplays, or honing your sewing and tailoring skills for costume perfection – all within a personalized and interactive setting. Our Cosplay Workshops bring you face-to-face with the expertise that breathes life into iconic characters. This is your chance to elevate your cosplay game, making it an unforgettable and enriching experience at Anime St. Pete.

list of workshops coming soon

A full list of cosplay workshops and instructors will be available soon. Workshop registration begins August 1st.  Some of the workshop topics will include:

  • Mastering Foam Crafting for Props
  • Advanced Makeup Techniques for Anime Cosplays
  • Sewing and Tailoring Tips for Costume Perfection
  • Creating Realistic and Lightweight Armor
  • Wig Styling and Maintenance Secrets
  • Stage and Cosplay Posing for Photography

how it works

The workshop is free, like other panels at the event. However, there are two significant differences from other panels: First, you must pre-register (seating is limited). Second, you must pay in advance for the workshop supplies, which are an additional cost. Cosplay Workshop Supply Kits will range in price from $15-$30, depending upon the workshop. 

on the lookout for Cosplay Workshop Instructors

If you have mastered the art of foam crafting, possess advanced makeup techniques perfect for horror cosplays, or excel in sewing, tailoring, and other cosplay skills, we want you to bring your expertise to our eager attendees. 
This is an incredible opportunity to lead hands-on workshops, sharing your knowledge, connecting with fellow cosplayers, and contributing to the vibrant and immersive atmosphere of Anime St. Pete. Each Cosplay Workshop Panel Instructor receives 2 weekend passes, and on the day of your workshop we cover your lunch of choice from the food trucks as well as your choice of dessert (homemade macarons, cookies, cupcakes).
Apply below (deadline is August 31).
