Katsucon 2020 Cosplay Met Gala

Believe it or not, Mike and I had never been to Katsucon until this year. It is held only about half an hour away from where we live, but somehow the timing never worked out for us to attend. However, when we heard that Cowbutt Cruchies Cosplay and Jedimanda were hosting an event called the Cosplay Met Gala at Katsucon 2020, focused on showcasing designer takes on pop culture characters, we knew we had to see that.

The event was organized as a meetup and runway walk on Friday afternoon. Mike and I were there primarily as photographers (though we did a casual cosplay as Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen–reporters covering the gala!). Before the con, cosplayers had the chance to submit their designs, some of which were then chosen to have featured runway walks. Others that were not chosen were still welcome to come pose in groups for photos before the walk.
