CNM’s 'Cosplay Day' Is Oct. 24; Superheroes Welcome

Oct 12, 2017

Cosplay (short for costume play) Day is a growing international phenomenon in which “cosplayers” wear costumes to simulate a character. At the CNM event, there will be a display by Lee Francis, who runs Indigenous Comic Con, a comic convention based on Native American comic books. He owns what is believed to be the only Native American comic book shop in the country.

Booths staffed by Jim Burlison of Duke City Comic Con and representatives of Comictopia, New Mexico’s Comic & Pop Culture Club, will conduct fun quizzes with prizes. Winners will be able to have 3-D scans made of themselves in their costumes, which they can take to CNM's FUSE Makerspace at Innovate ABQ to make tiny figures of themselves using a 3-D printer.
