Fort Collins Comic Con

Wanna Learn About Cosplay?

Cosplay is a ton of different skills wrapped into one awesome idea: creating your own take on your favorite character's look.

One of the biggest requests on last year's post-event survey was to have more material demos, cosplay education resources, and dedicated cosplay vendors. And on the second floor of FoCo Comic Con, you'll find just that!

Two full days of amazing cosplay programming, the 501st, Mandalorian Mercs, Sith Dynasty, Ghostbusters, AND these awesome cosplay vendors:
  • Better Than Toast Cosplay and Friends,
  • Krystyna Lynn Kreations,
  • MixFits, and
  • Rebel Skulls

What About Parking?

They say there are two major seasons in Colorado: Winter and Construction.

Willow Street is currently under construction (that's the road that leads to the Northside Aztlan Center). Don't panic, though: our Fort Collins Comic Con scouts went out to explore the route and we got most of them back.

What we learned was that Willow is one-way from College to Linden. That means you'll want to be on Willow Street or on College Street when you make your way to FoCo Comic Con.

The driveway to the Aztlan Center is also under construction, so you'll turn LEFT onto PINE STREET and follow the detour signs LEFT one more time to get to the Aztlan Center (bonus: there's great signage out there). As an added bonus, you'll be in the backup parking lot for the Aztlan Center.
No biggie, right?

If the main lot and backup lot are full, you can also park at Odell's dirt lot AND here are all the other amazing parking options you have nearby:
The walk from the Max Transit Center is actually not too bad assuming you're not carrying 5 tons of foam armor, so we highly recommend dropping off your most-heavily-cosplayed-companions FIRST and then finding parking from there.

We can't wait to see you at FoCo Comic Con!
