HOW TO TAKE PARTThe London Games Festival Games Character Parade will be a showcase of the vibrancy of iconic games characters and designs - and we're now holding an open call for cosplayers and games fans to take part. The parade is all about you, and we want you to feel this is not only a platform that celebrates the festival but also showcases and spotlights your efforts.
Entry is free, but we are asking all those interested to apply in advance using the form below. We're looking for games-inspired costumes of characters (to be clear - they must have appeared in a game), and as we're in a public space have rules about family-friendly attire and conduct. Professional cosplayers and frequent attendees of cosplay exhibitions are welcome - but so too are newcomers. You can read the full terms and conditions/guidelines here.
All those who take part will be supported on the day - from having places to get changed if you need through to security/stewards controlling the parade route (below). You'll also get access to post-event photography, and there's plenty of locations to take great pics yourself! The parade is part of a whole programme of activity over the afternoon of Saturday, 14 April. The full route and schedule will be published soon - in the meantime you can register to take part using the form below.
