HEROESCON LOVES OUR COSPLAY COMMUNITY!

We welcome CosPlay and Cosplayers of ALL AGES!

While we will not be holding a Costume Contest at our 2022 show, that’s only because we don’t like the idea of dubbing people “winners” or “losers”.

Regardless if you have a movie-worthy ensemble, or if you simply glued some felt to a t-shirt... ANYONE who takes the time to make a costume is a winner in our books!

We are planning to do something different and better for our CosPlay community at our 2022 show. Something more like a costume showcase with a runway, with more props for photo ops.

No one should ever feel uneasy about suiting up for the HeroesCon!!

We will have updates on our Costume Showcase soon!
