If you haven’t had the chance to dress up as your favourite comic book or anime character in a while you are in luck come the end of this month. Bangkok Comic Con is back for a third year and will again be held at BITEC, Bangna. The event, which is said to be the biggest pop cultural festival in Asia, runs from April 29th – May 1st. This years Comic Con has even more guests, cosplayers and interactive displays to embrace your inner geek than ever before. The three day event is set to have interviews and panel discussions with comic artists, famous cosplayers, and even Hollywood guests. There will also be talent scouts on hand looking for new comic illustrators.
Last year a highlight of the event was a life sized Iron Throne of Westeros, from Game of Thrones, where there were long line-ups to get a photo with your tush in the chair. This year will feature another Game of Thrones display, The Ascend the Wall virtual reality challenge. The popular cosplay contest and meet and greet with famous international cosplay stars will be happening again.
This event brings attention to the latest trends in pop culture in Asia and from around the world and is sure to please any comic fanatic. Dressing up as your favourite character is of course always encouraged. Tickets to the event are 200 baht.
