Who Are We?

The RIT Cosplay Troupe is a RIT club, full of hobbyists and actors that all share an interest in cosplay, crafts, performing arts, and geek-media. We are currently the driving force behind Cosplay Snow Festival & the internet-famous Tora-Con Chess Match. We now host other various shows and events throughout the year. We meet weekly every Friday evening at 8PM, so feel free to swing by and check us out!

Even if you don't cosplay, you can still come to our meetings. Wearing cosplay to meetings is encouraged, but not a requirement. Many of our members regulary attend meetings out of cosplay. We will hold cosplay specific events and shows throughout the year, so be on the lookout for those.

Because we are a performance group, we sometimes perform for other conventions or venues. If you would like us to perform for one of your events, E-mail use at: cosplaytroupe@rit.edu
We usually ask for help covering travel costs and providing free admission for our group, but we are willing to work with you.

  • What is Cosplay?

    The term cosplay is of Japanese origin (short for "costume play"), but cosplay was originally a hobby from the United States. Cosplay is an activity in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Favorite sources include manga, anime, comic books, video games, and films. While commonly seen at anime conventions, cosplay is widespread across all geek-cultures.
