Sexy Cosplay Con is not for the kiddies, so leave them at home! This “18+ after-hours annex,” as they are calling it, aims to hone in on the hornier aspects of costume-wearing in popular culture. Adult-oriented art, risque fan art, provocative panel discussions, and of course a parade of skimpy, sultry, slutty super-heroes, Disney characters and anime-inspired looks are sure to be seen. Presented by Troublemaker Studios, this inaugural event promises vampy vendors, “hysterical” programs and performances on a small stage, plus a full bar. Not a lot of specific info about participants on the organizer’s social media as of press time, but the “sexy cosplay” event name is more than enough, ain’t it?
