Tables & Booths

Cosplay Contest Sign-In Table

Instead of a panel to sign in for the Cosplay Contest, contestants can simply check in at the Cosplay Table located near the Cosplay Repair Station in the main hallway. Check your sound files, confirm your spot, and ask any questions when it is most convenient to you!

  • Friday 9:00am-5:00pm
  • Saturday 9:00am-11:00am

Information and Lost & Found

We are located in the Sky Lobby between the stone pillars at the east end of the tables, closest to the Pre-Registration room (Twilight 1). We offer the following services:

  • General Information: Directions, general questions, event/room hours (look for the signs)
  • Lost & Found
  • 18+ event and panels wristbands: You can get one 18+ wristband per valid government-issued picture ID (it must have both your name and birthdate on it). You must be 18 years old as of the date you request the wristband. No exceptions.

We will have a copy of the program book, the pocket program, and the general convention rules for review at the table. Come have us tell you where to go!

Photo Booth

Make sure to stop at Anime Banzai’s Photo booth, just outside the Main Events Hall, and get your FREE!!! Green Screen Picture! You can choose from a plethora of different backgrounds, so no matter if you come as an anime character, video game, or anything else, we’ll do our best to find a background for you. The Photo Booth will be available all three days for those who have valid Anime Banzai Convention badges.

Repair Station

Need a quick fix to your costume? A repair to your prop, or a make-up mishap? If it’s a simple sewing task the Anime Banzai repair station is the place for you. Stop by and make your repairs or have our expert staff help you out. It’s a free service that is offered to all Anime Banzai attendees.

Volunteers Table

Right next to the Information Booth and just across from the Registration Desk in the Sky Lobby sits the Volunteers Table. If you want to Volunteer, go fill out a form! If you have already signed up to Volunteer, go get your schedule! If you have any questions or complaints about Volunteers and Volunteering, go talk to the Volunteers Director – someone should be at the table or able to contact her.
