Local Cosplayers

Snowhawk Cosplay

SnowHawk Cosplay is a Barrie area cosplayer who has been cosplaying for over 6 years.  His work has been featured twice on Marvel.com for "Costoberfest" and has been involved in various events like the Niagara Falls Santa Claus Parade and the Guelph Santa Claus Parade.

Paperbag Cosplay

Paperbag Cosplay is a family of 8 cosplayers ranging from 5 to 60 years old. Always budget conscious, they never shy away from a challenge but thrive to create fun family friendly cosplay while using affordable and recycled material. It’s a whole family affair - even the kids are involved in the creation process. They are previous winners of the Masquerade “Best in Show” at Anime North and have been actively working, for the past few years, at establishing a cosplay community in Simcoe County.
