“Organising Comic Con in Delhi will always be close to my heart as we did our inaugural show in the city nine years ago. The city has the most enthusiastic comic book fans and cosplayers, who take this celebration of their beloved fandoms very seriously. This year we have some special guests, new launches, and experiential zones. This year, we wanted to align our Cosplay competitions to international formats, and we have introduced two new formats of cosplaying, which will certainly delight the city’s fans. We hope to put together an amazing experience for the Delhiites attending the show, making it the #bestweekendoftheyear for them indeed,” said Jatin Varma, Founder, Comic Con India.
Cosplay remains a very popular aspect of Comic Con India, and this year keeping in mind the growing, vibrant Cosplay community, Comic Con India has introduced a new Cosplay contest format. The contest which will give out prizes worth INR 2 Lacs each day of the show, will have two categories.
The first category, Indian Championship of Cosplay 2019 Delhi Qualifier, will see participants compete online, thereafter, pre-selected participants will go through a stage display session and compete on 3 parameters – needlework, FX and armor. The second contest format, namely the Delhi Comic Con Cosplay Contest 2019 is a celebration of all pop culture. For which the participants can register on-ground at the venue each day, and then compete on the Arena stage to eventually win the grand prize for the contest.
Some of the leading exhibitors and brands from the show’s 1200+ strong network will also be coming to create shopping experiences in the country. The Delhi Comic Con will offer fans a chance to enjoy real-world exhibits of their favorite comics, TV shows, games, anime, and movies.
The New Delhi edition will be followed by the Ahmedabad city’s debut edition of Comic Con at the Gujarat University Convention and Exhibition Centre on February 1st and 2nd 2020.
