This event is an exceptional occasion to admire many cosplayers and their marvelous hand-made costumes modeled after your favorite characters from movies, TV series, games, and comic books. Prepare to be dazzled not only by the outfits but also by the exceptional make-up, props, and stage performance given by the contestants. 

The Masquerade has hosted the best costume designers competing for the first prize for many years, making it the most renowned cosplay contest in Poland. In 2022 it will serve as the national preliminary round in the European Cosplay Championship – the European Cosplay Gathering! The winners of solo and group categories will receive Pyrkon’s full support on their way to represent Poland during the finals in Paris.

Act now and enter your submission today if you wish to participate in the Masquerade at Pyrkon 2022! We keep an eye out for talent, energy, and passion for cosplay. The contest was often won by people who had only just discovered their love for this craft. We wish to welcome you into the world of extraordinary costumes – no matter what your experience is!

We await your entries until the 6th of June 2022, 23:59.
