Since its opening, Comic Con Costa Rica has drawn thousands to the Convention Center, immersing them in the world of comics, anime, movies, and television. Now in its third year, the event celebrates the art of cosplay and has become a key cultural event for enthusiasts throughout Central America.

Attendees, clad in elaborate costumes of their favorite characters, showcased creativity and craftsmanship, turning heads and becoming a primary focus for photography at the event. Joseph González, dressed as Luffy from the anime ‘One Piece’, commented, “This is our celebration. Some might see it as frivolous, but for us, it’s a meaningful culture and a thriving industry with significant global economic and cultural impact.”

The convention floor displayed a range of iconic characters. Saturday also aligned with Star Wars Day, where fans echoed the line “May the fourth be with you.” Characters from Dragon Ball Z, Deadpool, Beetlejuice, Pikachu, Batman, Spiderman, R2D2, the Mandalorian, the Joker, Harley Quinn, Resident Evil, and even Garfield were also prominently featured, reflecting the broad interests of attendees.

This year’s Comic Con showcased a wide range of talent from the entertainment industry, including actors, cartoonists, musicians, and artists from major companies such as Marvel, DC Comics, and Netflix. Notable attendees included Sean Gunn from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, Ross Marquand from ‘The Walking Dead’, Raymond Cruz from ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Better Call Saul’, Famke Janssen from the ‘X-Men’ series, and Carey Jones from ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ and ‘The Mandalorian’.

Comic book artists like Jason Keith and Luciano Vecchio, both of whom have worked for Marvel, were present to engage with fans. The event began with a concert featuring the Costa Rica Orchestra, Japanese singer Shihori, and composer Kohei Tanaka, setting a high standard for the event.

Throughout the convention, attendees had opportunities to meet artists, attend panels, buy exclusive merchandise, and participate in cosplay competitions, featuring talents such as Taryn Cosplay and Andrasta.

Comic Con Costa Rica has established itself as a major celebration of creativity, passion, and the unifying power of pop culture in the region. It reflects the growing influence of the ‘geek’ community in Costa Rica and continues to attract larger audiences each year.
