ANIME NAME THAT TUNE – ANIME ROOM

Anime Name That Tune has been a popular convention event long before Wasabi Anime was around, but we’re worked hard to compile and organize hundreds of songs from well known Japanese films and television shows of the animated persuasion. Songs are organized by Easy (“The Sailor Moon Theme” in English) to Medium (“Sailor Moon Sailor Stars Theme” in Japanese) to Hard (“C’est La Vie” from Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon in Japanese.) The goal is make sure everyone has a chance when playing the game, not just hardcore Otaku.

COSPLAY MASQUERADE

With the ever-increasing talent level of cosplayers at Fan Expo Dallas, we've modified our event showcasing our costumed attendees. We're inviting our cosplayers to have their spotlight moment onstage during the COSPLAY MASQUERADE! Sign-ups are limited to the first 100 entrants 13 years of age or older (there will be a separate Kids' Contest).

KIDS COSPLAY MASQUERADE COSTUME CONTEST (12 AND UNDER)

The Kids Cosplay Masquerade Costume Contest is the time for the younger cosplayers to shine in a special contest focused specifically on them. With great support and encouragement, these energetic boys and girls will become the next generation of fandom and are the future of Cosplay. (Ages 12 and under)
