The Anime Los Angeles Masquerade is a cosplay craftsmanship and performance contest where cosplayers of all ages and skill levels show off incredible costumes and put on a show for the chance to win awards recognizing their prowess, not to mention fabulous prizes! Dozens of groups put together costumes and skits, some planning for months beforehand, to get up on stage to entertain the audience. From funny to dramatic, the newest shows to old favorites, our contestants cover the whole spectrum.
Come for our wonderful contestants, then stay for performances from special guests, including the winner of ALA’s Next Top Star, before the judges announce this year’s Masquerade winners!
The Masquerade is scheduled to start on Saturday at 7 PM on the Main Stage, with seating beginning as close to 6:30 PM as possible. Please check the signs to see where the Masquerade line will be routed.
Whether you’re on stage or watching from the audience, this year’s show is going to be a blast. We hope to see you at the Animé Los Angeles Masquerade!


Entry applications are closed; our show is full! See you in the audience!
