The Comic Con is here
Comic Con India’s fifth annual Comic Con Hyderabad is going to be held at the Hitex Exhibition Centre in Izzat Nagar this weekend.
“One of the best-known things about a Comic Con is the cosplay event for fans. Thankfully, Hyderabad has a strong cosplay culture, including a cosplayers club. We will have a contest where participants can come as any character they want to, and the first-prize winner might represent India at the International Comic Con,” says Jatin Varma, founder and managing director of Comic Con India.
The cosplay contest will have five categories: comic books or graphic novels; movies, television and animated; gaming; anime or manga; and sci-fi or fantasy cosplay. There will also be spaces where fans can use virtual reality and augmented reality to play games, watch movies, etc. There will also be an ESL India Premiership zone, where gamers can try their hand at video games like Counterstrike: Global Offensive, DOTA 2 and Clash Royale. A performance arena will have Youtube content creators, such as stand-up comedian Sahil Shah, The Viva and DJ Elliot, presenting live shows.
