Comic-Cons, short for Comic Convention, is a cultural event that has become immensely popular among comic fans, pop culture enthusiasts, movie-buffs, readers, artists, writers, collectors and the like. The event occurs at a convention center, where people of all ages come together under one roof, most are dressed as their favorite superheroes or villains. Artists, publishing houses, pop-culture entities, and others have stalls and tables where they display and sell their artworks, comics, and collectibles. But the main attraction of the event is Cosplay. It is short for “costume play”, where enthusiasts wear costumes of various characters and come over. There are prizes for the best costume! These cosplayers are also sporting enough to pose with you for a picture or even sign an autograph. Over the years its popularity has grown across the globe and many countries today have at least one happening annually.
