Cosplay Craft Fair

Primary tabs

Are you an accomplished cosplay crafter...or just a devoted fan of all things cosplay? The Cosplay Craft Fair will connect fans of all experience levels across a wide range of fandoms. 

Participate in free hands-on learning sessions throughout the day. 

GEAR SWAP:  Bring along complete costumes, parts or pieces, unused fabric, props, or embellishments for trade.  

Meet representatives from local costuming clubs and organizations.

Attendees are encouraged to come dressed in their favorite gear.  No realistic weapons are permitted, and outfits should be family-friendly.

Independent artisans may have items available for sale and/or trade.


Cosplayers with a lot of items to offer up for trade (enough to fill a table) can reserve an individual table.   Otherwise, there will be an open swap area available to anybody who wants to display items.  

Artisans may also reserve a table for swapping or for selling.

To reserve a table, fill out the form at here, or by calling (614) 545-6938.

Tables are six feet long and come with two chairs.  There will be limited access to power.  If you require power, please let us know.

Selling Guidelines:  The Bexley Public Library will not process or handle any money on behalf of artisans.

Airship Archon
The Airship Archon is a diverse group of entertainers, tinkerers, and business people hailing from the humble but worldly city of Columbus, Ohio. They continually strive to network and propagate their good name to far off cities as much as possible. Frequently they host build days, meet ups, picnics, and dinners. In addition, they also travel to conventions and events near and far. The Archon is a close-knit group and like to keep their business practices and policies on the sly but are willing to teach you a few things on fashion, character creation, prop building, sewing and being thrifty.
