Hi! I am Dani Foca, Italian cosplayer, here to report about last week-end’s Ludicomix convention held in Empoli, Tuscany.
Ludicomix is quite a small con, and this year they decided to have it in the city center instead of choosing a defined location. So, cosplayers would walk around in the streets and could take pictures in parks and near the beautiful fountain, while in the main square there were booths selling gadgets and games, and the cosplay competition was held in a theater. The convention ticket was just 4€ for cosplayers!
Specifically, the convention decided to organise a “photography tour” where a group of photographers and cosplayers would move together to specific locations.
My cosplay for the first day (saturday 28th) was Jolyne from JoJo’s bizzarre adventures, in a version from the fly-high with Gucci special. I am a great fan, and found many other cosplayers from the same series!
Also, the peculiarity of the first day was a Pokémon-themed cosplay contest. Many children took part in it, but grown-up people as well! Here is a beautiful Nine Tails gijinka:
Also, in every single shop window, there would be something manga or comics related!! It could be small volumes, but in clothing shops they had full and beautiful costumes.
