COSPLAY: THE ART AND BUSINESS OF COSTUME IN AMERICA
Continuing my journey down the nerdy rabbit hole, I finally got one short day to spend at Emerald City Comic Con. Having grown up in the Seattle area, I had never seen the Washington State Convention center so packed. Tip of advice: If you’re headed to a convention there, you’re better off parking along the Sound Transit line and taking the train in. Parking in the city is impossible. Naturally it was pouring that day, so my blonde hair frizzed out of it’s Dolores curls. Once inside, it was all worth the hassle. ECCC celebrated it’s 15th anniversary this year with record attendance. 90,000 people crowded the
convention center to attend panels, pick out prints from their favorite fan artists, and meet an ever growing cast of celebrity guests.
