SuperFan ComicCon 2014: Cosplay, Comics and Creatives – Photos

By May 19, 2014 3 Comments

The Victoria Day weekend saw the kick-off of SuperFan ComicCon 2014, the inaugural event taking place at the Better Living Centre in Toronto. Tons of fans took to the SFCC stage to show off their cosplay designs, while many artists and story developers brought out their work to share with audiences.

While many great celebrities were in attendance as well, the focus of the convention was very much on the fans, the cosplay, the comics, and the general celebration of comic art. The convention had a number of cool exhibits and booths. One that stood out was a silent auction benefiting Sick Kids, which had a cool array of comic and vintage items, including Marvel posters and Disney artwork. Another cool area was the Liquid Imprints body painting booth run by Aaron and Melanie Knox, where they live-painted models and transformed them into various superheros; some photos can be seen below (Video of their work coming soon!).

Below are a number of photos from the convention, highlighting the cool costume work by various fans, some of the artists and their respective booths, and a few shots of the cool displays including Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T. and Keaton’s Batmobile. This is just a sample of what took place at the convention.

    This con was all about cashing in on a trend. The organizers were clueless as to the geek culture and supporting artists and vendors. Zero effort, next to zero publicity. Would never attend again.

      Sorry you didn’t have a great experience Ella. Hopefully the organizers will take away feedback from this event and make it better next year.

    Comic cons are not about cosplay. There are events specifically for that area of interest. As shown by every photo on this page there was clearly a lack of people- all the background aisles are empty. I feel bad for the celebrities and especially the vendors who attended this event. The organizers should stick to home shows instead of branching out to something they no nothing about. One press release does not count as publicity.
