“Your eyes can deceive you; don’t trust them.” – Obi-Wan Kenobi
And the cosplay actors at Proyecto 145: Episodio V were so amazing, our eyes played tricks on us! We felt as though we were standing next to living legends.
More than 7,000 visitors showed up this past weekend to our #KatmanduCosplay event in conjunction with the Asociación de Amigos de la Ciencia Ficción (AACF). In addition to our honored guests, we also had the pleasure of hosting more than 70 staff members, 35 associations and many more.
From Star Wars and Harry Potter to Ghostbusters and Indiana Jones, there were plenty of picture opportunities with popular Sci-Fi characters. Our guests watched special documentary screenings, Indiana Jones whip demonstrations, Sorting Hat ceremonies and many other festivities throughout the weekend. After taking a break from meet-and-greets and photo opps, guests visited the museum of Sci-Fi themed collector’s items, including old-school gaming syste#ms. In our kids’ workshops, the little ones made their own Harry Potter wands, Sci-Fi costumes and miniature galaxies.
And, of course, everyone took the time to have fun at Katmandu Park!
All in all, it was a fantastic weekend and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone’s pictures on social media! Check out our gallery below:
