Like so much in recent years, the pandemic has hit the cosplay scene hard, shutting down the conventions that in many ways are the lifeblood of the community. but after getting things back on track with Dragon Con last DecemberI’m really excited to present our first cosplay showcase for 2022.
One of the first big shows of the year, Katsucon was held as usual at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center National Harbor, Maryland. Thousands of cis players attended over the weekend of February 18-20, and while you’ll see below that many attendees were masked for their photos (masks were mandatory for entry), the con also had strict rules regarding the vaccination status of the participants as well.
Katsucon 2020 was one of the last big cons to happen before the pandemic hit and the 2021 show was canceled as a result, so it was great to see everyone back. Below is a video and collection of photos from the Mineralblu Con, whose work you can see here. As usual, you’ll find a watermarked cosplayer’s credits and costume information on each image.
