Like the true nerds we are, we took the time to visit Vancouver’s own comic convention back in April. We were so excited that we literally snapped hundreds of pictures at the event (when we weren’t busy looking through the cool vendors)! Here are some of our favourite fighting cosplays and their fight gear from the event!
Street Fighter – Ken
We legitimately approached this friendly fighter by tapping him on the shoulder and asking: HOW’D YOU DO, KEN? After a friendly exchange and a couple of laughs, he agreed to let us snap a picture of his fighting pose. Was he Ken? SURE, YOU’RE KEN!
Mortal Kombat – SubZero and Scorpion
These. Two. Are. AWESOME! The SubZero cosplay was set up to breathe frozen mist out of his mouthguard, while the Scorpion had an amazing chain prop! Even after being swarmed by a horde of fans, these two were cool enough (pardon the pun) to let us take a picture of their suits in action.
Mortal Kombat – Raiden
We ran into this guy no less than 3 times over the course of the convention – needless to say he’s been busy using his teleportation tricks! Raiden is arguably the strongest protector of Earthrealm, and we can see why! Who worries when you’re the eternal God of Thunder, chock full of teleportation and electricity-based powers?
Mortal Kombat – Liu Kang
One of Earthrealm’s greatest warriors, Liu Kang is a force to be reckoned with! This Liu Kang was friendly enough to let us snap a quick picture at the entrance to the event. We’re just glad he didn’t decide to snap our backs with a Flying/Dragon Kick!
Clearly, this man has the power! He’s got the costume, the character, and the style to pull off the Master of the Universe himself! You clearly don’t want to mess with Prince Adam, the protector of Eternia!
And there you have it-five of our favourite fighting cosplays from FanExpo Vancouver! We’re a nerdy bunch and we’re not afraid to show it. Check out of Facebook page for frequent updates, or follow us on Instagram and Twitter to see what we’re up to live!
