Step one- pick a character from your favorite book, show, movie, game, anime, or YouTube channel. Step 2 - create a costume that looks like that character. Mix and match items from your closet, upgrade an old costume, try face paint or a wig, create props from recycled materials; the possibilities are endless! Step 3 - join us at the Comic Book Fest on October 14 and show off your look!
