Kitacon Quest 2017 – Cosplay Masquerade Gallery

WARNING: This article is image heavy.

We love to focus on the amazing work of the geek community – So when we were given a chance to sit near the front of the Masquerade, I knew I had no choice but to say “Let’s do this”! We’re here to celebrate the amazing work behind the huge community, where I took pictures of as many people as possible who entered themselves into the Masquerade. Come have a look and enjoy the artsy craftmanship of these talented geeks.

That’s it for another year – Thank you so much for having a gander through this years Cosplay Masquerade. My two personal favourite costumes on here are the Tjorbjorn and the Pit. Amazing quality costumes and the Pit cosplayer was exceptionally nice when we spoke to her in passing. Next year, I vow to get to a better position – Hopefully next time I’ll be sat with the other press members, but it didn’t detract from the absolute quality of the cosplays on display! But what do you think of the quality of this years Masquerade? This might have been the best one we’ve seen for a while; However there really was a lot, and I mean a lot of Overwatch characters. It was impressive to see the sheer number of people from the same franchise, that’s for sure. As always, leave your thoughts in the comments below, or over on Facebook or Twitter.

  1. Ooooh thank you for sharing! I love conventions and looking at cosplayers. I can see that the Overwatch characters are out in full effect. They were very common in the 2 conventions I attended this year.

  2. Yeah a good camera definitely makes a major difference. The thing on my phone is good but even so I had to throw out many shots.

    While people were going around on stage, did you ever have moments where you were like “please turn around!” and then they walked off-stage?

    • Yup, it’s because press are supposed to be on the side the entrants look, i.e to their right, so they often don’t look left. It’s sad, but it makes sense
