Its safe to a great portion of convention attendees are in it for all of the elaborate cosplay designs flooding the panels and hallways of the venue. Some outfits are just a matter of piecing together a great outfit with the proper accessories to accent it. Then there are some extremely detailed costumes that took days or even months to assemble. With so much effort being put into their designs, cosplayers enjoy sharing this with all the other attendees.
Midwest Media Expo was no exception to the sheer volume of attendees celebrating their favorite characters. This post would go on forever if every cosplayer was listed but sharing is caring. There were many recognizable characters for Team Max@Play but there were also a few that wasn’t able to be identified. If you know who some of the characters are or what series they cam from please leave it in the comment section below. Also, if you have a character you’d love to see at the next convention tell us about it.
Thanks, enjoy and please share.
