Costumes this year included classic comic book superheroes, princesses from Frozen, and a new Boston Strong character. Plus: Sean Astin shared memories from the Lord of the Rings set, and Jason Momoa of Game of Thrones fame smooth-talked a fan in Dothraki.
Cosplayers put long hours—and a good chunk of change—into building their own costumes so they can spend a few days a year inhabiting their favorite works of fiction. From August 8 to 10, when Boston Comic Con hits town, they’ll finally get to strut their stuff for fellow fans. Here’s a preview.
In anticipation of Boston Comic Con 2014, which starts next Friday, local pop culture fans gathered at Dick's Last Resort in Faneuil Hall Marketplace for the second annual pre-convention costume contest.
