In order to cosplay like your favorite hero or heroin, you are going to attend a convention to display your brilliance to the world. From Mega-Con to Comic-Con attending a convention is an amazing and sometimes liberating experience. The daunting prospect of the number of people in attendance pales in comparison to the possibility of meeting new people with similar interests. A resounding fact of the matter is that Con attendance requires organization, preparation and more than likely a hearty amount of financial savings. That is why we have prepared for you our very own Convention Starter Kit.
For those of you who have attended a con, you realize a few essential but not commonly thought of things that are necessary to participate in the Con experience (and made the cut for this Convention Starter Kit). From not being able to find a bad large enough to carry all of those awesome new figures, to the aggravation of buying comic art only to have it crumpled throughout the day, we have you covered. If you have never attended a con then you are in the right place to look like a pro during your first convention experience. We have put these items together from trial-and-error first hand experience attending a variety of themed cons, both with and without cosplaying.
