Comic Con London 2022: Saturday's coolest cosplay

Featured

One of the main attractions of London Comic Con is the fan cosplays, so here are some of our favourites from Saturday, 28 May 2022.

Thousands of comic, film, gaming, and anime enthusiasts united at London’s May 2022 Comic Con. The spring event is always the most anticipated particularly since the May 2020 and 2021 conventions were cancelled due to the pandemic.

ExCeL London was buzzing with excitement on Saturday, the most popular date. From countless art vendors to guest panels, it was definitely a Comic Con for the books.

It’s the only time when fans can dress up as their favourite characters with no judgement, though they might get a few strange looks on the Tube.

Without further ado, here are some of the most impressive cosplays we spotted.

London Comic Con 2022: The most spectacular cosplays

Moon Knight

There were several Moon Knight’s walking around, but this was our favourite. The mask was seemingly made of a kind of hard material and since it wasn’t constructed of fabric, it gave it a more accurate shell-like mask.

The stitching detail is very impressive also; props to the fan who managed to keep his entire suit white, including the shoes.

Pikachu – Pokemon

There were three of these inflated Pikachu’s waddling around ExCeL; they took up a lot of space during the queue into the centre.

Genshin Impact

As one of the most popular games in the last year, Genshin Impact had their own large booth giving freebies away. Hundreds of fans dressed up as characters from the game, so many that there was a meet-up just for their cosplays.

Dalek – Doctor Who

We’re curious about how the fan is sitting inside the costume – they just glided around ExCeL all day.

Final Fantasy XIV – Sylvanas and Anduin

The attention to detail on the armour and props is insane. They truly went all out for these costumes.
