We’ve listened to your opinions and decided to do our next cosplay gathering at Raiders, which is a much larger venue!

Here’s what you can look forward to:

-KARAOKE ON STAGE: We will have the stage setup for you to sing whatever you feel like! As many times as you want. 🙂 Whether it’s an anime or video game tune on stage, or your favourite song, we got you covered with lyrics and music provided through our stage setup!

-CHG Raffle: We have many prizes to giveaway in our raffle! We also have adorable plushies and vouchers for you guys to win! More prizes will be announced closer to the date.

(NOTE: If you buy your admission online early, you will automatically have 3 tickets entered into the raffle! If you choose to buy at the door or want to buy more tickets, we will be selling them at the event for the same price.)

PERFORMANCES from the talented artists of the cosplay community, including:

Raiders is the ultimate e-sports venue but also perfect for our cosplay gathering. Their food and drink menu is delicious and extensive. It also boasts 7,000 square feet area, with 21 powerful gaming PC’s, 30 tv’s, and two HD projectors. And you can bet we will be utilizing these features for our event. 🙂


The admission fee is $5 both online and the door.
