Cosplay is one of the most visual representations of a convention.  According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, cosplay is "the activity or practice of dressing up as a character from a work of fiction (such as a comic book, video game, or television show)."  HerdCon is pleased to host a cosplay event and competition with multiple levels of difficulty including juvenile, journeyman, and master based on experience and age.  Please contact Heather Brooks at  if you have any questions regarding the Cosplay events at HerdCon.
