Do You Cosplay?

Are You a Cosplayer?

No but what is cosplay that I keep hearing about? Cosplay is where people of all ages dress up as their favourite characters from video games, movies, comic books and much more. Some people purchase their costumes and others display their passion by making replica costumes by hand. On of the best examples of this is Syfy’s Heroes of Cosplay. All of the people on the show have been cosplaying for a number of years and compete all over Canada and the US at conventions in the costume contests.

There is a HUGE culture within the cosplay world that is based on fun, acceptance and passion. Cosplayers take the time to share their skills, ideas and passion with people of all ages and the most popular place to find them is at a convention. The most famous of all conventions is San Diego Comic Con. This annual event draws thousands of people each year from around the world.

Heading to California not in the budget this year? No problem. Toronto holds one the Canada’s top conventions in August each year FANEXPO. With guest speakers, artists and actors from across the Sci-Fi, comics, anime, horror and gaming. This is a great opportunity to try out cosplay for the first time. Don’t worry you will not be alone. This year’s FANEXPO will take place August 28th to 31st. You can check out all the details at
