I know guys… I know. This post is super late and in my defense, I have been very busy trying to do a good job at ‘adulting’ with my internship and all that. But, without further ado… here goes!
The ASUS Lanka Comic Con was held on the 26th and 27th of August and the hype was too real! I am not one to be into animes or cosplays and everything geeky, but seeing all these people cosplay has been always fascinating. So this year I decided to drop in on both the days to get a taste of Comic Con.
But before we headed to Comic Con we decided to drop in at The Cakery (aka The English Cake Company) for some high tea. Compared to other high teas in places such as The Kingsbury or The Galadari Hotel, The Cakery high tea is well worth the money since it’s under 2000/= for two people. There’s no buffet, but you are able to have a drink of your choice and choose from a variety of cheesecakes and dessert. The platter comes with both sweet and savoury and it’s incredible and is fit for four people – not two.
After our filling high tea, we headed to Comic Con (I have more pictures from Day 2 of Comic Con, so excuse my outfit change). When we got to the entrance of Comic Con there was ‘Deadpool’ waiting to greet us and once we got in to the venue it was geek paradise. One of my friends spent around 5000/= on merch and another spent over 20K on comics!
But what interested me the most were the cosplays! There were so many great cosplays and most of them did a great job. A few of my favourites can be seen down below:
There was also a photo booth, cosplay competitions, games, fun things for kids to do and a really good set of food stalls. There was this one drink stall with the drinks being named after famous characters such as the ‘Lannisters’ and ‘Minions’.
All in all, it was a great experience and I will definitely be dropping in next year as well.
Oh! And remember that tweet Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins made backing up the mocked Wonder Woman cosplayers? Yep. They were there at Comic Con as well! Like I said, it was a weekend to remember.
To check out more cosplays from Comic Con browse through the galleries of Che Studios.
A shoutout also goes to Jasmine Clothing Store for the cute Tommy t-shirt.
A final shoutout goes to one of my favourite cosplayers who never seizes to amaze me, Shalitha Senevirathne! Keep doing what you love.
