Hey guys, im Tanya from Russia
I was always interested in Cosplay cons of other countries, especially EU nd US.
So how your cons are held? where, for how long are they held? how many times a year(for ex. in NY)? Are there many people and are there any competitions, if yes which?
I will be glad if you answer)
Sorry for my bad english

Hi Tanya.

I'll answer your questions as best as I can.

I live in the state of California. Most of the cons that I attend are held in Los Angeles and there is a con Every 1-3 months. Usually con will last for 3 days. ALA is going to be held for 3 days. If you count Day 0, then it is 4 days long.

How many times a year are they held? Each con is held once a year; but there is a con almost every month, so there is plenty of variety.

So how your cons are held? I don't quite understand this one. I mean, they shouldn't be any different than any other convention. Just more people. Celebrities from the USA(and sometimes from Japan) are known to be invited to these conventions.

Are there many people and are there any competitions, if yes which? There are lots of people. The smallest con I went to had 200 people. The largest one I attended, Anime Expo, had nearly 50,000 people! There are always competitions. Masquerades and Trading card game battles are the only ones that come to my mind right now.

If you've just joined cosplay.com, we welcome you! Usually for your first post, it's better to post in the "Introductions' section here:

This section is mainly for those who will be attending Anime Los Angeles next month.
