A couple of updates for the Cosplay Contest held in the Majestic Theatre.  First being transportation. Some of you have asked about getting to and from the theatre, we will be providing bus transport for those that will be needing it. 
 We will be updating you all soon on the time the event will happen, as well as all the cosplay sign-up information which will be online, so keep an eye out for that soon. The Cosplay Contest rules will be published in April.
Some have also asked about entrance fees for the theatre. You will NOT be charged to attend the cosplay contest in addition to your weekend pass, but you will need to have a purchased membership badge to participate and/or attend the cosplay contest.
We are working to finalize all of  the details and will pass them along to you as soon as we have them.  Thank you for all of your interest and we can't wait to give you all of the details.

ANIMEFEST GOES TO THE MAJESTIC THEATRE

AnimeFest is extremely excited to announce that this year's Cosplay Contest will be held at The Majestic Theatre in downtown Dallas! Only a block away from the Sheraton Convention Center, The Majestic is an iconic Dallas landmark, a 1,700 seat theatre billed as "one of the most elegant performing arts venues in the southwest".

As our con has grown, the cosplay contest has become so popular that even the spacious accommodations in the convention center are no longer adequate to contain the event. The AnimeFest team has been working very hard since the last convention coming up with a plan to let as many people as possible attend and view the contest.
We think this is going to be a wonderful experience for all of our cosplayers and attendees. #cosplay
