Fan Expo marked a milestone this year, celebrating 25 years of encouraging everyone to “discover, celebrate, belong” to the numerous fandoms spawned from films, TV shows, video games and lots more.
As the convention has upped its game over the years, so have the attendees. Cosplayers have steadily stepped up their creativity and ingenuity, with many honing their artistry to levels comparable to any highly skilled craft.
From moulding EVA foam into armour, to designing and 3D printing their own props, many cosplayers spend hundreds of hours and dollars perfecting the components of their chosen characters.
