What is Cosplay?

Cosplay – the quintessential anime pastime – finds its home in Tokonatsu. At the Matsuri or as part of our open-air cosplay Masquerade, we have a range of events where you can showcase your favourite characters, your funniest skits, and your incredible craftsmanship!

Regardless of your cosplay making skill levels and whether you cosplay or not, all are welcome at our events!

Further Questions & Queries

If you have any questions or would like to enquire about cosplay at Tokonatsu, please feel free to email The Cosplay Team and we will try to answer as many questions as possible.

Cosplay Blankety Blank

Welcome to Cosplay Blankety Blank. The game where you get to find out if you share a brain cell with your favorite characters! Through a series of prompts, you’ll use your creativity to fill in the blanks, and see if you can match your answers with the cosplayers on stage.

Cosplay Masquerade

Whether you’re looking to compete with your handmade cosplay, show off a bought costume, or showcase a cool talent or a funny sketch, Tokonatsu Masquerade is the time for your cosplay to shine! You can enter by yourself or in groups, and be in with a chance of winning a super-special cool prize!


In this co-operative guessing game, one player must guess the anime character they chose at random. The other players must write down one word clues to help them, however, if two (or more) people write down the same clue, both are removed from the pool, leaving fewer clues for the guesser. Do you go for the obvious clue, risking doubling up and losing clues? Or do you go more obscure, making a more difficult clue, but a wider pool to help? But does that leave the most obvious clue unsaid?
