Spring and Summer Cosplay Conventions

While some people may debate the merit of cosplay and the purpose of attending cosplay conventions, we are (as you can imagine) all for it. Whether we admit it or not, we all engage in fantasy role-play in one way or another. If you go to the movies and imagine living as one of the characters or think of alternate endings for your favorite books or TV shows, you are role-playing in a way. A cosplay convention gives you the chance to get out of your own head and interact with others who share your same interests. And in these tough times any opportunity to connect with new people is beneficial.

It is also an opportunity to spend a little time walking in someone else's shoes (or boots or whatever the case may be). Check out our Cosplay and Anime costumes to find your favorite characters and then get ready for spring and summer cosplay fun.
