While Pakistan does not have big ComicCon-like events, that does not stop fans from dressing up as their favorite characters AKA cosplay. This weekend, the geeky crowd turned up in droves for TwinCon’19 in Islamabad.
Cosplay, anime and movie characters, we saw it all.
The cosplay scene is really picking up in Pakistan.
TwinCon’19, which was held on February 10, catered to a massive crowd of over 5000 anime fans and cosplayers. These fans swarmed in from all across Pakistan for the event.
Even though the cosplay scene is not that big in Pakistan the attendees of the event did not disappoint. The costumes really were true to cosplay and kwai (anime cosplay). Here are some of the best looks.
This guy decided to go with Jared Leto’s ‘Joker’. He even has the abs to go with the look, gansta chic.
Harley was with another Joker though.
Of course, we’re never getting over Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow or the Pirates of the Carribean franchise. This cosplayer looks cleaner though.
He may be green with mischief but this Loki costume has us green with envy.
Looks like someone came in from Mordor.
This looks like Deadpool, Daredevil and Batman had a child. Call me old but who is this guy?
Marvel vs DC again.I for one am rooting for that lil’ Superman.
Wolverine never really did like his X-men uniform, and this one’s keeping it casual.
Who’s side is Dr. Strange on, Marvel or DC? (True Believers already know the answer!)
There were some anime cosplayers at TwinCon’19 after all.
This lady even brought her own monsters, dragons, whatever these are (sorry I’m a millennial).
Is she She-ra the Princess of Power, or an anime character?? Looks Kwai.
Major cosplay envy and kwai goals.
Who’s this bunny? The one from Alice in Wonderland?
We’ve gotta admit Kwai is cute.
A good time doesn’t need a character label.
All this hype even had the Grim Reaper and come attend the event for ‘herself. Yeah, the Grim Reaper is a girl.
Cosplay is never complete without Star Wars. Hey, Vader!!!
There was a Spartan in the midst too. Oh boy…
We’ll never get to see what Kakashi Sensei looks like.
This looks like it belongs at a modern art museum more than a cosplay event…stunning.
Are these two sisters? Sister goals it is then.
TwinCon’19 in Islamabad
Surprisingly this is not the first cosplay event in Islamabad. The TwinCon has been held four times before in the capital city.
The TwinCon’19 was held in Aura Grande Enclave, E-11. Besides the cosplay, the event had collectibles, books, comics and other stuff that attendees could buy. There was food too.
