Hello guys, I hope you’re all doing fine and enjoying life. let’s kick it off with a few quotes that pretty much sum up this blog!
“This is not to be cocky, but, I go over real well at Comic-con. I’ve done quite a few Comic-cons and I enjoy the hell out of them. They are so much fun and so bizarre” Kristen Bell
“Comic-con fans are so affectionate, and it’s always a lovely way to start a new season” Kunal Nayyar
“Every time I go to Comic-con I’m jacked. I want to dress up and walk the floor and answer questions because I’m excited about it. It’s like making new friends” Mae Whitman
The 5th of May was by far one of my personal favorite moments because I got to attend the annual Comic-con that was held at the American Dome of the Show grounds. The 1st comic-con was founded around 1970 in the United States and after that other countries have adopted the concept and made it their own. Lusaka Comic-con or LsCon brings the pop culture convention in Zambia. It’s a gathering of the arts, movie, music, games (my favorite), comic, digital arts and creative enthusiasts.
Unfortunately this year I did not get in formation with my costume but my friend(s) and I decided to go all black at the event. I added a leather jacket to give my look a more street wear kind of vibe while my friend decided to wear his make up (not in an ordinary way lol) to add a gothic touch to his look.

This year LsCon hosted the best of the best in comics, graphic local artists ( like Mwalu Chuck Nambula, Chileshe Tembo and so on), anime, manga, video games, toys, cool gadgets and so much more. Peep through the art that had me mesmerized.
Let’s get into the cosplay, shall we?
The beauty with LsCon is that it allows you to come dressed as your favorite TV, movie, Anime or Video game character and this year people did not hold back. It was jaw dropping to see different people cosplay (as ‘Deedee’ from Dexters laboratory, ‘Lady Loki’ ‘Samurai Jack’, ‘Shaggy’ from Scooby-Doo, the crawl, ‘Cat woman’, ‘The Sheik’ Jack Sparrow, Luke Skywalker from Star wars etc) it was even spectacular to see them behave and carry themselves as those characters they cosplayed ( can you guess some of the characters they cosplayed below? Go ahead please😊)

LsCon provided a lot of fun activities and different Rock, RnB, Hip-Hop, pop and alternative bands/artists/acts like Kunkeyani Tha Jedi, Chansa, Austinite Echo, Dirge and a lot more who had us singing along to every line and screaming on top of our voices.
If you missed this fun pop culture event, don’t slack off start preparing for next year and be sure to cosplay as your favorite character to fullest.
Thank you for reading.
