Beyond Cosplay have been covering and attending conventions and events – big and small – whenever we get the chance. We thought, why not compile a huge list of every single one of them for you. Why not get yourselves – and us – pumped for the next convention or event to come. What are you waiting for? Start planning and create those costumes and props and get moving!
NB. Due to the nature of venue and event availability, this will be updated on a daily basis and/or close to the date in time. This is a guide-only article and we highly recommend to check with actual event organisers on their social media pages for updates.
