Cosplayers slay at Fan Expo Vancouver

Cosplayers slay at Fan Expo Vancouver

Fan Expo Vancouver is an annual destination event for fans of manga, anime, comic books, video games, fantasy, sci-fi, and horror. Its 2018 edition – which ran October 12-14 – drew thousands of Vancouverites with a full slate of celebrity guests (including Wil Wheaton, Felicia Day, Jason Momoa, Lou Ferrigno, Ron Perlman, and Kevin Conroy), panels, gaming demos, and vendors.

No shade to the celebrity guests, but in our humble opinion, the shining stars of Fan Expo Vancouver were the cosplayers, many of whom came to slay in intricate, handmade costumes. We’ve assembled a photo gallery of some of our favourites.

Fan Expo Vancouver returns in March 2019.
