A-Kon 2019 Cosplay Contest

By Chris Brailsford

It's cosplay contest time~

Yatta-Tachi attended A-Kon 30 in Dallas, Texas this past weekend (June 27th-30th, 2019), and it’s the longest-running national anime convention in North America. People from all walks of life came together to celebrate their love of Japanese culture, anime, manga, games and some rather creative cosplay. Here is our collection of the amazing cosplay we saw on display at A-Kon 30’s Cosplay Contest! The images are broken down into three categories: Cosplay, Cosplay Skits, and the Awards Ceremony!

If you’re one of the cosplayers, please let us know your name and a social media you want us to use for credit in the comments section below (we will add them to the image caption in the gallery)!

Feel free to use our images, just give us a shoutout/credit when you use them! Thank you!
