What Comicon does
Born as an expression of the anime and manga communities, cosplay activities have expanded beyond the Asian worlds. COMICON organizes many Cosplay initiatives, both during festivals and in connection with specific projects. In addition to thematic rallies and parades, our festivals offer both national competitions and events included in international competitive circuits, and flank the shows with in-depth opportunities such as meetings with famous cosplayers, technical-practical workshops, and dialogues between cosplayers and artists.
- Parades of the most important organizations and associations (including 501st Italica Garrison, the largest Star Wars imperial costume club)
- In our Asian Village area there are spaces dedicated to the technical aspect of cosplay, from concept to realization. That inspired us to provide the cosplay communities with workshops and panels with world-renowned cosmakers and experts.
- Contests designed for fans, for the more experienced (Cosplay Challenge PRO) and for the younger ones (Cosplay Challenge Kids).
