Brussels Comic Con 2018 Magnificent Cosplayers
Brussels Comic Con 2018 held at Tour & Taxis in Brussels, Belgium was a successful event of the year. Although we are just starting this year’s first event. There are definitely more conventions that are approaching.
For the one day tour in Brussels Comic Con 2018, as I’ve mentioned from the earlier post. By that time being that I was there, Atom Stage was presenting the Cosplay Competition.
Brussels Comic Con 2018
The first day was intense, with all the people roaming around and the cosplayers too. For this specific event, there were actually more and more cosplayers around.
I mean people or visitors can dress as they would like to. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are officially a Cosplayer. I have seen a bunch of these people around, some of their works are pretty impressive and eye-catching.
As a veteran of cosplayer presentations, I would say there was some novice/beginners cosplayer around. There were some intermediate works that were greatly done and there were those who surpasses my expectations.
In summary, I will show you those cosplayers that I think who stand out from the crowd and those who’ve I’ve bumped with. Lastly, I would say a huge “Thank You” to the Cosplayers for their stunning works and patience during the event.
The Eye Catchers
First up is these gals who were just right after the entrance area. As we’ve entered the place I’m astounded to see people gathering together to take pictures of these two. I’m sure you are familiar with these two special characters. Who wouldn’t be?
The one from the left side is Jawas character and the one beside him is one of the favorite characters of all time in Star Wars films. No other than Chewbacca! These two just pulled it off! they cosplay work are just amazing!
Just right after Jawas and Chewbacca, the next cosplayer that stands out from the public is Lucky Luke. I saw him soaring, trying to position his body on at the wall.
A photographer asked this cosplayer to pose at that specific space. That was really courageous of him doing that favor for a photo. I was right beside the other photographer and grab that chance to take some shots of him.
If I was the photographer with him, I wouldn’t risk asking the cosplayer to pose up there because it might turn into a catastrophe.
Belle and the Beast
The Beauty and the Beast were the third ones who captured many audiences. Not just audience but photographers as well. On our way to see the geek markets, there was a quick commotion in the middle of the area.
As I approach, I saw some photographers taking photos of this lovely couple. They were so adorable to look at, especially when Belle looks at the Beast. It reminds me of the recent movie Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson as Belle that I’ve watched.
Wandering around the area, I have seen this eye-catching red dress from afar. I know there’s something special out there that I must find out. In the end, I have truly found her and Wow! This pretty lady has just made a big upgrade to Sabé’s image.
You’d stop by for a while and be awed of her cosplay work. That headgear though it looks like super heavy. What a sensational work!
Mr. Jack Sparrow is in town, he just captured my heart. Honestly one of the best and close to the image of the character. He is just perfection! Even his actions though It gives you that impression that you are with the real Jack.
It’s so captivating to see cosplayers like him who give so much effort to move and act like the real character. I wonder if he’s a she or a he, who knows there’s a lot of cosplayers out there who do “Genderbending”
From the other side of the halls, somewhere in the Dealers Labyrinth, I’ve bumped into this amazing cosplayer. At first, I’m confused about her character cause her face reminds me of Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter.
But the moment came when I saw her hands, I know its Edward Scissorhands from one of Johnny Depp’s films. Her makeup is precisely done, and the scars all over the face. Johnny Depp will surely be happy to see this one!
Moving to the next movie character is the well-known Movie way back 2015. Do you still recognize him? he is Marvel’s Ant-Man. One of my favorite Marvel movies, Paul Rudd was the perfect actor for this character. I hope they will release a new film soon.
Power Ranger Green was also there at the event. Well, there were a lot of the same costumes, I saw 3 of them and I gently ask one for a photo. Since Jason David Frank was there, I was expecting many will come with Power Ranger suit and Yes! they were there not only 3 but more.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Who wouldn’t recognize him, Drax the Destroyer from Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2. I just love his character especially the second part where he met Mantis.
Ego, Star-Lord’s Father from the Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Delightful cosplay works from these two characters. You can say that they play their roles as the guardians in this event Brussels Comic Con 2018.
Loki, the brother of Thor from the movie Thor. Nice suit and pose for this guy! I bumped at him in this isolated area at the restaurant. Glad to have him solo this time.
Here we have Leia Organa and Anakin Skywalker from one of the famous movie of all time Star Wars.
The couple Spiderman and Spidergirl.
Batman Cosplayer: Gino Vandierendonck
Batgirl Cosplayer: Valérie Jonckheere
It is noticeable that there were a couple of cosplayers and duo’s who came together to present their works at Comic Con Brussels 2018. Which duo’s do you think stood out the most?
Sincerely, these cosplayers are admirable! my favorite? I think all of them were super cool to look at. In terms of poses during shots, I would say the Spidy team.
Comic Con Brussels 2018 Pre-Catwalk
Getting around the geek markets, suddenly there was a call-up to all cosplayers for the Catwalk Parade. We were adoring a souvenir piece (Going Merry ship from One Piece) from a booth at that time.
So we decided to take a look at the cosplayer that will participate in this parade on stage. We have seen a bunch of Cosplayers having fun before the program they were even dancing on the stage.
I went to this group of cosplayers bubbling with each other and gently ask for some photos of them. They were so kind to give my request, out of the three cosplayers only Mr. Iron Man gave his business card to me.
Well, I presume that the rest of the group aren’t official cosplayers yet. If you wanna see more of Iron Man’s work you can check him out in his Facebook account Aegidius Designs.
After those taking pictures of those three cosplayers, my hubby told me that there’s a Mccree Cosplayer just behind them. You probably do not know we are a big fan of Overwatch Cosplayers.
Seeing one of them here in Brussels Comic Con 2018 is the happiest feeling.
Mccree was the first Overwatch Cosplayer that we met here. I wonder if where are the others, I haven’t seen any other Overwatch characters yet.
My Favorite Cosplayers
From the Atom Stage where Cosplay Competition held. I’ve seen this Crusader Cosplayer from Diablo. She was sublime, her costume was really nice and she looks fabulously beautiful.
Finally, another Overwatch Cosplayer. What makes it more special? it’s Zenyatta my favorite character (my main). I do play overwatch online and him? I do play him many times.
Besides, Zenyatta is not very easy to create in terms of costumes. I remember last year in Made in Asia or F.A.C.T.S. no one did this cosplay yet. That’s why I’m super contented to see one at Brussels Comic Con 2018.
Other Cosplayers at Brussels Comic Con 2018
Once again a big “Thank You” to all the Cosplayers for their generosity of posing every time people ask them too. Thank you for coming to Brussels Comic Con 2018 and presenting your works with us!
Thank you to Brussels Comic Con 2018 organizers! Job Well Done!
For those I haven’t taken some photos, hopefully, next time we’ll bump into each other. Please do let me know if you know any of these Cosplayers. I would love to tag their Facebook Page or Instagram.
Lastly, for cosplayers, If you need a copy of your photo don’t hesitate to ask. I’ll send it to you via email for free. See you next year!
What a fun event, meeting so many characters from the movie. Been to Brussels few years ago and love this city, especially where Tin tin was born.
Yes, your right Kumamonjeng, Tintin is a Belgian (haha) Well, it was a crazy event. I certainly enjoyed taking photos of all these cosplayers. Hopefully you will comeback here in Brussels I’ll treat you out for sure.
WOW! This looks like it was so much fun! I’ve always wanted to go to the Toronto Comic Con, but it always falls the weekend of my birthday and I’m always doing something else. I need to go one of these years, though!
Hi Emily, that’s so sad to hear that you can’t attend that event because of your birthday. Let’s hope for next even perhaps you’ll attend one soon. I’m sure you’ll love it!
Wow, I’ve never seen such elaborate costumes! I think my favorites were Beauty and Beast, and Batman and Batgirl.
Great, Melinda! I’m so happy to hear that you’ve enjoyed reading my article. Indeed those Duo’s were fabulous! I remember the first time to meet the cosplayers of Beauty and the Beast it was 2015. I even posted their photos on my blog from that year. It was fantastic!
What amazing photographs. It looks like you had such a great time attending this Comic Con event. It certainly looks like a lot of fun.
Thank you Elizabeth, It was memorable for me!
I’ve always wanted to go to a comic con, we have one hosted local every year, but I’ve been unable to make it. It’s amazing the amount characters you captured.
Thanks Cia, That’s so great to host an event like this. I bet a lot of children were happy to see their favorite characters!
I have always been intrigued by the extravaganza that is comicon! Your pictures are amazing!! (though they took a loooong time to load) Great work!
Thank you Emily, you could attend one time near your city. I’m sure there is every year. Oh about the loading I guess you have to frequently clear your cache for the photos to load super fast.
The costumes are my favorite part about Comicon! I love, love, love this! It’s crazy creative!
Thank you Holly!
That looks like such a great time! I’ve always wanted to go to some sort of “con”. I’m considering CrimeCon! 🙂
Wow that’s a good idea Jennifer, I wonder what CrimeCon has, where is that exactly? nearby your city?
This looks like so much fine. I am loving all the details and the outfits are just so amazing. I was so looking forward to this post after your previous post on this event. I am glad you had a great time!
Oh Thank you so much Preet. I would love to make a one post only but the amount of photos that I have, I can’t let this cosplayers not shine they deserve so much.
Comic con looks like so much fun! I love how much effort people put into their amazing costumes. Belle and the beast are my favorite!
Hi Kelly, Belle and the Beast are so sweet. I wonder if they are a real couple. Thanks for dropping by.
My husband would absolutely die to attend this event!! He’s crazy into comic books, so dressing up and interacting with other fanatics would be a dream!
Hi Aseky, I bet ComicCon would be a great event for your hubby. There’s so much to look up to, in terms of comic books you will find everything you need plus it’s even cheaper. Tag me if you guys would attend a con one day.
Seriously so many amazing costumes our Comic Con here in San Diego is pretty awesome too. That Beast and Belle costume though!!
Thank you Megan! I love Beauty and the Beast too.
