Planet Comicon, Kansas City, March 14-16, 2014
Planet Comicon 2014 will have a significant cosplay element including a costume contest. We will also provide space in the exhibit hall and in the hallways for cosplayers to meet and greet fans, show their costumes and post for pictures. Cosplay has become more popular the last few years and with our association with SyFy Channel’s Heroes of Cosplay, we expect 2014 to be an even bigger year for costumes fans. We encourage anyone who wants to attend in costume to do so!
Please note: For everyone’s safety, firearms and sharpened instruments are prohibited. Many characters are associated with various weapons. We encourage you to be creative to build facsimile weapons that do not pose a risk of injury.
