Rose City Comic Con took place in Portland this weekend, and as always there was some fantastic work from cosplayers on display. This year’s convention was at full strength after it had to skip 2020 due to the pandemic and was open last year under strict COVID protocols. Masks were still required inside the convention, which is never one to stop cosplayers as they came out in force as a variety of characters from film, television, anime, video games, comics and much more.

This year’s convention saw a host of excellent cosplay with a strong anime influence, featuring everything from Demon Slayer to Fullmetal Alchemist as well as anime-inspired video games like Genshin Impact. The upper floor of the Oregon Convention Center hosted Destination Cosplay, where fandom meetups and cosplay panels took place, and allowed fans from the likees of Critical Role, Star Wars, Disney, Marvel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and much more to hang out together. Other popular fandoms that made showings in cosplay form included The Boys, Final Fantasy, Lord of the Rings, and of course Marvel and DC (and the respective film franchises).

You can a few other pics from the convention including one from the Representation Finally! comic panel and a reel of the single-person escape room set up by Escape Games PDX at the 411mania Instagram account.
