Celebrating Fan Passion in April at ITHACON

ITHACON 45 is excited to announce that the Cosplay Runway will be back at this year’s live, on-site convention.

For over 45 years cosplay has been an integral part of the ITHACON convention. The convention celebrates cosplay as an important way to connect artists with fans and fan interpretations of their work. ITHACON’s Cosplay Runway allows fans a creative way to express themselves while showing their love and appreciation for their favorite characters.

Along with fan cosplay, the 501st Legion, a Star Wars cosplay group, will return to ITHACON. The innovative group is an all-volunteer organization formed to bring together cosplay enthusiasts and promote an interest in the Star Wars franchise.

ITHACON will feature cosplay panels, a cosplay repair station and numerous photo opportunities. The annual Cosplay Runway is scheduled for 1:00 on both days of the event, Saturday April 23rd, and Sunday April 24th.
