Game Shows

Cobbled Cosplay

Is cosplay your favorite part of a convention? If you’re into costumes, makeup, and watching people stress out over time constraints and fashion faux pas, Cobbled Cosplay is the one for you to watch.

During Cobbled Cosplay, contestants are picked at random from active audience members. Then a proxy Sideshow staff member is tasked with recreating a surprise costume in 10 minutes using only household objects and found materials. After those 10 minutes are up, we all vote for the best costume! The audience member who wins will take home the prize that their proxy host is cosplaying as.


It’s a classic game of bingo — with a technological twist! Show up live and use your mobile device to play our updated geeky Bingo, which includes more clues, fun, and squares than ever before.

Trivial Cahoots XL

It wouldn’t be a Comic Con without a test of endurance and knowledge! Join us for a supersized, extra long session of Trivial Cahoots, a game where the audience gets to participate LIVE with prizes on the line. You’ll answer between 15-30 trivia questions using a mobile device as your buzzer. Winners get Sideshow Rewards for their account as well as bragging rights.

In-Person Party

Join Sideshow and for an official in-person gathering! Mingle with Sideshow Staff as well as other fans at the Joyce Public House in New York, New York. We’ll have drinks, finger food, and raffles with some seriously sweet prizes. If you’re interested, get your tickets now at
