Star Wars Celebration Anaheim Cosplay Competition

The Cosplay Competition Appliciation for Star Wars Celebration Anaheim is now closed.

Have you spent the past year creating a Lando costume that L3-37 would love? Do you have an imperial costume that Darth Vader would consider most impressive?

Either way, Star Wars Celebration Anaheim invites both veteran and amateur cosplayers to join the most exciting Cosplay Competition in the Galaxy at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim! It is more than just a competition – it’s a fun filled celebration of the very best Star Wars cosplayers that want to share their talent, skill and determination with the universe.

The SWCA Cosplay Competition will be taking place on stage in Anaheim on Saturday, May 28, 2022 and all entries must represent a character or element from the Star Wars universe. Participation in the SWCA Cosplay Competition is free, but all participants must have a valid entry badge for Saturday of Celebration in order to compete. The exact time of the SWCA Cosplay Competition will be announced soon.

Categories are:

Most Elaborate – Entries are judged on the overall appearance of their cosplay as well as the quality of the construction of the costume. Purchased costumes may not enter this category, but the costume does not need to be worn by the creator so long as the costume creator is present at the convention.

Best Likeness – Entries are judged on how well they can imitate and personify the character. • Group – Two or more people.

Best under 13 – Entries must be 13 and under to participate in this category.

Applications are now open through January 31, 2022! Please complete the form below, all fields are mandatory and partial entries will not be accepted. May the Force be with you!

Special Note to our Group Submissions: Please fill out the form using one person’s primary contact info and filling in your group name under “Stage Name”. For character name, pronunciation, and which universe they’re from, you can answer these questions for each group member in the same field so it appears as, for example, “Luke, Leia, R2-D2” or add this in “What should our SWCA Team and Judges Know?” field. Please be sure to still submit photos for each member.

Thank you for your interest in applying. This form is currently closed. All statuses will be sent out in March. If you have any questions, please reach out to Thank you.
