Gamer Eve and Cosplay Costume Con

Posted on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 by Dana

Our gaming program and costume con were so popular last summer, that we are offering these special events once again at the Columbia Public Library. On Monday, July 17, join us for table top gaming from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Bring your own game or Magic: The Gathering cards. We’ll also have Oregon Trail, Pandemic, Small World and more! Snacks will be provided. Ages 10 and older.

Then, on Friday, August 4, we’ll host a fun-filled, after-hours Cosplay Costume Con. Dress up as your favorite character, be it superhero, anime, sci-fi or your own original persona. Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m., so be sure to arrive before the library closes at 6 p.m.

Our panel of guest judges include Brandy Cross and Gabe Halicks from Distant Planet Comics and Collectibles and Jolene Metzen, a professional costumer with a degree in Costume Design and Technology.  They will award delightful prizes for the best costumes and characterization in different age categories, so be ready to show off your cosplay game! All ages are welcome.
