BronyCon getting closer and with that said they are happy to announce various cosplay events and even some new ones. FeaturingHall Cosplay Contest, Cosplay Fashion Show, Grand Galloping Gala and their brand new Crystal Café!


This year, cosplayers will have the option of participating in two different types of events: The Hall Cosplay Contest and Cosplay Fashion Show. The Hall Cosplay Contest will allow contestants the chance to have their costume judged by a panel of three expert judges. The trio will judge on the craftsmanship of the costumes up close before deciding a winner. Those looking to show off their costume for fun can take part in the Cosplay Fashion Show. The show offers a opportunity to model in front of a raucous crowd and is open to all cosplayers, including those participating in the Hall Costume Contest.

So what this means is if you are a SERIOUS CosPlayer who puts a lot of hard work and quality into your cosplay then you’ll want to enter the Hall Of Cosplay contest but, if you’re doing this just for fun then the Cosplay Fashion Show is for you. Those interested in either or both events can visit for more information and pre-registration.

Those looking for both a show and a way to grab a meal can take part in the new Crystal Café. Offering a unique experience for both lunch on Friday and breakfast on Saturday morning, the café is a separately ticketed event hosted by BronyCon’s expertly trained cosplay team. Price includes a meal, 5×7 photo print from the BronyCon Photography team, and a special limited edition souvenir mug.

So this is like dinner and a show. You will be served by Princess Cadence and Queen Chrysalis along with their team of maids and butlers to a meal of their royal caliber. It’s like Disney’s Character Breakfast. Space is limited, with tickets for the Royal Breakfast already sold out and those for the maid café lunch in short supply. Interested individuals can go to for prices, times, and more information.

-UPDATEAs of 11:32 PM EST on June 11, all tickets for the Crystal Café have sold out. We are working diligently to see about adding more space and are overwhelmed by the support from our community for this first year event. Those who have interest in still attending or who have any questions can email for more information.

Another fan-favorite event will be returning this year in the Grand Galloping Gala on Saturday night, July 28. A staple for attendees since BronyCon arrived in Baltimore, this year’s theme is “A Night At The Movies” and will allow attendees to walk the red carpet and dance the night away. As a “Formal Event,” a dress code will be in place. Remember people, we may be Geeks & Nerds but we can still show a little class 😉 More information, including formal wear examples, can be found at
