There are so many reasons to be excited about Montreal Comiccon 2014. With George A. Romero, Hulk Hogan and Matt Smith topping the bill as guests of honour, the Ecto-1 Ectomobile from Ghostbusters on site and 3 fun-filled days of assorted other fandom awesomeness in store, the event promises plenty of extra-special thrills and chills.
Of course, the things we’re most excited about are the costumes! It could be argued that nobody does costumes like cosplay enthusiasts – especially cosplay enthusiasts looking to a score a photo op with their favourite celebrity.
Need some proof? Take a look through some of our favourite costume pics from previous years’ Comiccon Montreal events.
Due to the event’s timing, we often find Montreal Comiccon to be a preview of costumes we’ll see during the coming Halloween season. Check out our Comiccon Inspired Halloween ideas for 2014 below.
