Cosplay at Katsucon 2020

Katsucon 2020

Last weekend was Katsucon, an annual 3 day anime, Japanese culture, and fandom convention. Aside from its scenic location at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in the D.C. area, this event is best known for its incredible cosplay. And the attendees did not disappoint.

Among the most popular fandoms for cosplay were Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, Lore Olympus, Good Omens, Disney, and Marvel.

Here are our some of our favorite cosplays from the convention. We couldn’t get everyone’s handle, so if you see yourself or someone you know, contact us!
