The main event of the evening will be a cosplay contest judged by Alana Evans and Penny Lane. The lucky winner will receive weekend passes to the Central Coast Comic Con in September.

"Comic-Con shows and parties are some of my favorite events to participate in because they involve everything that makes me who I am: video games, comics and cosplay. It's all there and I love getting involved. It also gives my fans a unique opportunity to come meet me, hang out, have fun, and see me with my clothes on!" said Evans.
