Comic Expo For Teens

Written by Robert Simeon

Calling all superhero fans, anime addicts, sci-fi lovers and comic book enthusiasts. Join CPL for the 2nd annual Comic Expo on May 13th at the Albion Bolton Branch. Dress up in costume as your favourite character and join for a full day of fun.

First time attending the Comic Expo? Not to worry, we’ve got some helpful tips to ensure you have an unforgettable experience:

Dress Comfortably

Cosplay is fun, but there’s a day full of activities (which could be tough if you are carrying around an authentic 42 pound Thor hammer)! Dress comfortably and use lightweight props. Also, don’t be intimidated with complex make-up. There will be a cosplay make-up artist on site who will help you achieve the look you want.

Fully Charge Your Phone

Be sure to charge your phone the night before. There will be plenty of opportunities to take a selfie (keep an eye out for the CPL selfie mat)! Plus, post your photos throughout the day to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #CPLComicExpo for the chance to win a prize.

Attend As Many Activities As Possible

For every activity that you participate in, you will receive a raffle ticket. You could win an awesome prize basket from CPL!

Don’t Be Late

Ok, 10:00 am may be early for some of us on a Saturday. But, if you show up on time, you will be rewarded! The first 125 people receive a free comic book. So, be sure to set your alarm!
