by Greg Payne The Cosplay Stars Of FanExpo 2015
The four-day pop culture bonanza known at FanExpo 2015 once again took over the Metro Toronto Convention Centre over Labour Day Weekend. Superstar guests flew into town to meet with devoted fans:
Hannibal‘s Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson; Harry Potter‘s Rupert Grint, Tom Felton and James and Oliver Phelps; Doctor Who‘s Karen Gillan and Jenna Coleman; the MCU’s Hayley Atwell and Ming-Na Wen; Scream‘s Neve Campbell and Skeet Ulrich; Game of Thrones‘ Jason Momoa and countless others. Comic book artists met with their followers, new video game products were rolled out, and despite a near-record heat wave hitting southern Ontario, amazing cosplayers put their craft on display. Here’s some of the best.
