All the crazy cosplayers we saw at Detroit’s Youmacon 2019


Halloween may come but once a year, but for many people dressing up in elaborate costumes is a way of life — and many of them will be in attendance at one of the largest cosplay conventions in the country, Youmacon. The sprawling, three-day celebration of Japanese anime, comics, and video games draws people from all over the world to Detroit's TCF Center and Renaissance Center.
