We are nearing the end of the year and that means that it is time for the Comic Con fever to go around the nation. About seven years ago, Comic Con first came to India and the fans who were always moaning about how they don't have access to their favorite merchandise or how they can't really dress up as their favorite characters rejoiced. After a couple of successful conventions in Mumbai and Delhi, this year the Comic Con is happening in four cities, Mumbai, NCR, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad. The dates for the convention are out and everyone is already getting ready for it.
The cosplay event is one of the highlights of the Comic Con event. There are people who spend months designing the perfect costume as a tribute to their favorite characters. And if you are thinking it's just about the comics you cannot be more wrong. The trailer of Baahubali was launched at one of the Mumbai conventions and so was Shivaay merchandise. You also get a lot of fan experiences along with the most important thing of all merchandise for everything pop culture. Last year, they even had the Fantastic Beasts stall where you could record yourself casting spells. Comic Con Hyderabad is also known for its amazing array of cosplayers who are dressed to impress. Comic Con Mumbai also attracts a lot of celebrities and the AXN experience section is something you should watch out for.
