Highlight from Indy PopCon 2018: Cosplay!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

A convention is a convention with or without cosplay, but cosplay makes things a lot more fun! While I was walking around Indy PopCon, which was June 8th – 10th, I politely asked cosplayers if I could take their picture (this is proper convention etiquette), and many let me. Here are some of my favorites.

 

This is the first time I have seen One Punch Man cosplay!

Always ask a cosplayer permission before taking their picture. If they said yes to the person next to you, you still don’t have permission to take their picture. After the other person has taken their picture, ask nicely if you can take their picture too. Remember, cosplay is not consent. These tips will make the con fun for you and everyone else.

Thank you to everyone who let me take their picture at Indy PopCon!
