Our first round of Momocon 2018 cosplay!
ComingSoon.net is attending MomoCon this weekend in Atlanta, Georgia, and it’s one of the fastest-growing, all-ages conventions in the country. Attendees of the event have come together to share their love for Japanese anime, American animation, video games, comic books, and many of them brought some very creative cosplay. You can check out our first round of MomoCon cosplay photos in the gallery below!
The name MomoCon comes from the Japanese word for “Peach,” and with Georgia being “The Peach State” it makes for a perfect fit. MomoCon began as a fan-run event at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2005 and was even held at the Student Center & Commons in its first years. Since then, MomoCon has expanded to greater numbers of attendance and has had to change locations to meet the demand of those wishing to attend.
Some of the notable attendees of this year’s MomoCon include Bex Taylor-Klaus of Arrow and The Killing, the creative team behind the popular web comic and series Cyanide and Happiness, and a number of the voice actors from the hit video game Overwatch including Chloé Hollings (Widowmaker), Chris Parson (Junkrat), Crispin Freeman (Winston), Elise Zhang (Mei), and Jen Cohn (Pharah).
