Cosplay Competition

The SoTFest 2024 Cosplay Competition takes place on Saturday, 13th July 2024 and we will enjoy our contestants’ performances starting 12:30pm on the main stage at Bescot Stadium, Walsall.

We will present all participants on stage, and showcase the wonderful skill and costumes portrayed in bringing the Sea of Thieves to life. After the showcase, some musical intermission and consultation time for the judges, we will invite all the participants back on stage and the judges will announce the winners! 

There will be 3 places that are rewarded with medallions.
