The first thing you will notice even before you get to the event will be enthusiastic costume-clad participants, increasing in numbers as you approach the venue.

Once inside, you will be blown away!
First, you will be treated to some incredible costumes representing sci-fi, horror, anime, and more.

Some costumes come straight from the imagination, maybe based on steampunk or video games, or a combination of genres.

Next are the sprawling vendor displays, some sporting interactive attractions such as video games, to comic books, clothing, jewelry and more. And in many cases, the vendors are just as into the costumes as everybody else.
