Lip Sync Battle

Join the Faithful and Fallen Mascots for the first-ever Cosplay Lip Sync Battle at METROCON!

We want you to create a cosplay lip sync performance that will get the audience engaged—one way or another! Keep in mind, the more the song fits your cosplay, the better it will be received! Think of a narcissistic Gundam pilot singing Celine Dion’s “All By Myself” or Madoka and her friends singing “Who Run The World (Girls)” – the sky is the limit!
