Get ready for a weekend full of Cosplay fun at the Boxboro Regency Hotel during the NorthEast ComicCon Holiday Shopping Extravaganza!
Carley Winn loves cosplaying Harley Quinn and has been doing so since 1998. She has over forty versions of this character alone. She is a long-time comic book fan of everything from Batman to X-Men. She also is very knowledgeable about retro video games and tabletops and has helped run several LARPs. She was mostly self-taught with help from Gosu Loli magazine, which she discovered while studying in Japan. This led her to sew Lolita fashion, and through cosplay, she has made everything from ball gowns to battle wear. What she loves most about cosplaying is doing so with others and for charitable causes. She is a member of Heroes for Hire, a cosplay charity group, and she is also on the board of directors for Circus Complex, a nonprofit circus arts school in Newton.
Whether you’re a seasoned cosplayer or a newcomer to the world of costumes and role-playing, there’s something for everyone at NEComicCon’s Holiday Shopping event. With Carley Winn Cosplay hosting activities all weekend long, there’s no shortage of fun and excitement to be had!
One of the highlights of the weekend is the Kids’s Cosplay Parade, taking place on Saturday at noon, and Sunday at 1:00 pm. Get in on the action by bringing your favorite superhero, princess, or character and joining the parade in the Cosplay Courtyard. This is a great opportunity for kids (and kids at heart) to show off their costumes and have some fun.
Another not-to-be-missed event is the Create-A-Character Cosplay Contest! The contest takes place on Saturday at noon and Sunday at 1:00 pm in the Courtyard, and it’s your chance to show off your original costume design and win some cash!
To participate, simply come in a costume that you’ve designed yourself and get on stage to tell the backstory of your character. Carley Winn will have the audience vote on who they think deserves to win the $50 prize (which can only be won once per weekend). With a little creativity and some stage presence, you could walk away with the cash and the approval of the audience!
