Have you always dreamed of playing your favorite video game or movie character? The Cité des sciences et de l' industrie opens its doors to you for a total immersion in the world of cosplay through the Cosplaymania festival, from May 9 to 12, 2024.

Cosplay, which originated at American science fiction conventions before conquering Japanese culture festivals in Europe, is now an essential component of pop culture events. Cosplaymania offers all participants a series of hands-on workshops to learn how to make impressive costumes.

More than just dressing up, cosplay is an art that also involves adopting the character traits of the characters embodied. Over the four days of the event, you'll be able to attend round-table discussions on the cultural impact of cosplay, its creative challenges and its community dimension.

The climax of Cosplaymania is undoubtedly the open stage and cosplay contest that will bring the event to a close. These moments will allow everyone to showcase their talent and share their passion for cosplay. Whether you're an experienced cosplayer or an enthusiastic novice, these gatherings promise to be a lively spectacle where creativity and originality will take center stage. It's an opportunity to discover cosplay from every angle, and to enjoy a festive, convivial experience with family and friends.
