Want to meet with other cosplayers? Be part of a Dragon Ball brawl? Or a Sailor Moon reunion? See below for Anime NYC’s schedule of cosplay meetups. We’ll be adding more every week leading up to Anime NYC, and if you’d like to host your own, click here.

  • Please note all meetups are submitted and hosted by fans. Anime NYC does not directly organize any cosplay meetups.
  • The Javits Center is a big place, but we have one official photoshoot area – the River Pavilion. This is a large glass-enclosed atrium at the top of the fourth floor of the Javits Center.

If you have any cosplay meetup questions, please reach out to
