This is a judged competition and the competitors are vying for a chance to win a part of the $15,000 prize pool, bragging rights and the coveted Planet trophy! Each year a different local crafter designs and creates the trophy we give to our winners. The Planet trophy is a symbol of excellence and we have been fortunate to see some amazing cosplays cross the stage over the years. Be sure to mark your calendar and attend this wonderful exhibition of art and craftsmanship! The contest is free to attend with your Planet Comicon admission credential. This year's cosplay contest is sponsored by NFM, B&B Theatres and 3DHQ. Please be sure to check the convention app and/or programming schedule online to determine if the start time has changed.
Panel programming is open to Planet Comicon attendees at no additional charge on a first come, first served basis. Any exceptions will be clearly noted below. For example, selected workshop events may require an additional ticket.
We cannot guarantee that attendees will be able to attend a particular panel. For the safety of our attendees, we reserve the right to limit admission to any event based on the seating capacity available. Planet Comicon does not clear the seating in rooms between panel events. A limited number of FastPass admissions are available that guarantee access to premium seating for celebrity events. FastPass admissions are available only through advance orders and cannot be purchased at the door.
All events, guests, and schedules are subject to change; announcements on the day of the event take precedence over information presented elsewhere.
Events are located in areas of the Bartle Hall exhibit area and in meeting rooms in the adjoining Kansas City Convention Center
