Cosplayers on Ice is won’t be frozen in time
Generally speaking, when we think of ice skating, we imagine people decked out in thick winter jackets, fluffy hats, a pair of mittens, and maybe a nice scarf. We don’t picture someone dressed as Darth Vader, Peter Quill, Team Rocket or a Minion. But on Jan. 3, Chattanoogans might just see some of these characters (among many more) lace up their skates at Ice on the Landing.
From 3 to 6 p.m., MomoCon, (Atlanta’s Family Friendly Gaming and Animation Convention) and Anime Blast Chattanooga, (Chattanooga’s anime convention) are hosting the costumed ice skating event “Cosplayers on Ice.”
Cosplayers on Ice will give cosplayers a chance to get together, dress up like their favorite character from just about any pop cultural phenomenon, take pictures, and then, ice skate!
The event will also include a free photoshoot, which according to organizers, “will allow reporters and photographers the chance to photograph scores of Chattanooga’s cosplaying community, which will bring out a variety of elaborate handmade costumes, from small to giant, amidst the holiday decorations and on ice.”
In addition to the photoshoot and skating (which will cost $10, including skates), organizers will also be giving away plenty of door prizes.
The event is open to everyone, whether you plan to skate or just watch. All costume types are welcome. Send us your favorite photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
