The Cosplay Skit Contest is where cosplayers and performers bring their talent to the KNC stage! Skits can range anywhere from a dance, to a song, to a set of dialogue and everything in between - the most important part is the crowd gets pumped and the contestants get creative and fun! The cosplay Skit Contest is primarily judged on performance.

Think you have what it takes to perform your creation in front of a live audience? Do you want to make them feel just as excited as you are about your skit? Then this is the contest for you! Feel free to put your own flavor on every skit - the cosplay skit contest is judged on organization and choreography, entertainment value, originality/creativity, and overall presentation of costumes. Bring your skills and ideas to battle on the stage for a chance at the cash prize. Applications close July 22nd!
