For those new to events like Wyntercon Cosplay is abbreviated from Costume Play, so and event where you can dress up as someone or something else, most commonly a character from TV, films, movies, computer games or comic books and meet other people who like the same.

Wyntercon is an amazing Comic Con style event held each year at the Winter Gardens in Eastbourne, East Sussex, it attracts guests from all over the country. Most people dressed up for Wyntercon, I went as a slightly punky version of Mad Eye Moody from Harry Potter!
