Announcing Glamoured to Life Check-in Details and Cosplay Support

July 20, 2023

We're pleased to announce the Glamoured to Life check-in details for Fan Festival 2023 in Las Vegas and what costumed attendees can expect when arriving on site for check-in and for the stage event. Additionally, we would like to share information on the “Cosplay Room” that will be available for use by attendees as well.

Back in April, we asked attendees to pre-register their interest in participating in our cosplay stage event Glamoured to Life. We're ecstatic to announce that we had nearly 500 attendees show their interest in participating in the live stage event! Due to the extremely high interest to participate, we will hold check-ins to confirm 100 walk slots for the Glamoured to Life stage event on both Thursday, July 27 and Friday, July 28.

  • All costumed attendees who are confirmed a walk slot in the Glamoured to Life stage event must agree and sign an Event Release Form. This form will be distributed to attendees when they check-in.
  • Multiple check-in time slots will be available to accommodate for varying arrival times of attendees.
  • Check-ins to confirm your participation in the Glamoured to Life stage event will be held on a first come-first serve basis for each designated time slot.
  • Attendees who registered their interest as a group will be counted as one walk slot. Only one member from a group needs to be present at check-in to confirm a walk slot for the group. The group member confirming the walk slot will be provided multiple Event Release Forms for group members. All group members must still agree and turn in a signed Event Release Form by 9:30 a.m. (PDT) on Friday, July 28 to a check-in staff member located in the Cosplay Room before being allowed to walk on stage.
  • Each walk slot is determined by a group or individual walking on stage. To accommodate more costumed attendees on stage, we may ask individuals if they are comfortable being with other costumed attendees during their time on stage.
  • Any attendee who previously registered their interest to participate in Glamoured to Life and checks-in during the designated times below will be eligible to receive their in-game prize, regardless of their ability to participate in the live stage event. Each individual of a group must still check-in to confirm their eligibility for prizing.

Cosplay Room

We have created a separate space off the show floor for attendees who need to adjust or change aspects of the cosplay they’re wearing. We will also be providing a few items that may help to touch up or make minor repairs to a part of your outfit. We will have different changing areas within the room (blocked by curtains), but these are not intended to be used as the main method for changing into or out of a cosplay. There are not enough rooms for everyone to use for that purpose, so please consider this an additional method to assist attendees who need to make some adjustments or changes while at the event.

Costume Guidelines

Please remember to adhere to all of our costume guidelines.
