Virtual Con 2020!

The Geek Asylum has set up Virtual Con as a way of still coming together in this trying time where some of our favourite events have had to postpone. Make sure you check the respective event pages and their organiser's group to see when their rescheduled dates are!


Virtual Con will never replace the real life con, so support your local & national events!

All profits from Virtual Con will go to Facebook's 'COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fundraiser for WHO with $10 Million Match' by the United Nations Foundation

We will have a fun-packed day of celebrity guests, cosplay, competitions, tutorials, workshops and shopping without having to leave your home! Feel free to post your pics throughout the day and browse the various stalls as they come up! Prizes will be available to win all day, so stay tuned for that!

Thank you to everyone who is supporting us in this quite experimental venture. We really do just want to bring people together, have some wholesome fun, and do something good in the world!

Thank you for being #oneofus

Cosplay Masquerade

A Con isn't a Con without a Cosplay Masquerade, even a Virtual one!
We'll be bringing you not one, but FOUR categories on the day that you can take part in.

There will be 50 places per category except Makers which will be limited to 30.
Places will be offered on a first come first serve basis - more details to follow
Applications will be open from 18:00 UK time Saturday April 04 2020 so get your thinking caps on which costume you want to bring and which category you'd like to enter!

The categories are:

  • Under 16s
  • Cosplay on a budget - The entire costume must have cost less than £10
  • General Cosplay - Cosplay is everyone and here you'll be able to showcase your bought or put together costumes
  • Cosplay Maker - This is for those of you who are handy with a sewing machine or heat gun. Costumes entered into this category will need to be 80% your own work.
