Awesome Photos From Sri Lanka's Comic Con

Sri Lanka had only its second ever Comic Con on the weekend, and it looked like a blast.

While the cosplay community there may not be as well-established as it is elsewhere, there was still some quality cosplay on show! Even Harambe turned up (if you’ve seen a pic of this outfit floating around on Reddit/Imgur, now you know where it came from!).


If you dig these pics, there’s a nice little documentary on the founding of the con (and really, the cosplay/geek scene in Sri Lanka in general) here. I wonder how many other cons around the world got their start from a busted email list...
