While I’ve never heard of Colossalcon before today, I’m thinking I may need to make a trip next year because this sounds like a total blast.
Colossalcon was June 5th- 8th and is a Japanese culture, anime and gaming con held at the Kalahari Waterpark and Resort in Sandusky, Ohio.
Here’s how cosplayer and attendee Gillykins explained it:
On top of your regular convention fare of amazing guests, panels, masquerade and dealers hall, Colossalcon has an entire resort full of bonus attractions such as a petting zoo featuring baby tigers, giraffes, camels and a bird feeding room. I personally had a blast going down waterslides and splashing in the wave pool as Minnie Mouse, of course I also checked out the hot tub bar and got myself one of the legendary Kalahari Sunrise’s. Colossalcon’s nickname is bikini-con which many cosplayers make use off, how many Animes can you think of with a beach episode? Basically all of them! This is the perfect convention to get creative with swim variants of characters and have an amazing backdrop for photos.
