Central Florida Spotlight

Florida Central Spotlight


Interested in becoming a LUMI-CON Cosplay guest in our CFS division? But what is the  CFS? Let us answer any questions about this feature only at LUMI-CON!

What is the Central Florida Spotlight division? 

The Central Florida Spotlight was created in 2018 as a way to give individuals ranging from the Orlando to Sarasota areas a chance to highlight their talents and start their careers off on the right foot!

We opened up submissions last year which aimed at helping a handful of individuals to get noticed and start a path at becoming a cosplayer with a carrer!

Two individuals where chosen to represent the next 2 years  and pave the way for future CFS contestants!

At LUMI-CON believe in our community exists an abundance of talented, skilled and hard-working individuals who are deserving of an opportunity to shine.

Maybe you’re just starting out. Maybe you’ve been doing this for some time, either way we all look for a platform to get our names out there and share what we love to do and have worked so hard at.

Each year LUMI-CON and our current CFS guests will select local talent to take part in our feature called the Central Florida Spotlight!
