Yes, it’s true: Comic Con Cosplay Bingo is real. My sister Alex (who was nice enough to help me out with the running of my table at Wizard World Philadelphia this year) and I were discussing the frequency and rarity of particular different costumes that show up at your average Comic Con and got to thinking how it could be like BINGO. That very quickly gave rise to the concept of making it into an ACTUAL game you could play while walking the floor of a Convention.
It becomes very much a win-win sort of scenario (if you ask us,) because you get to experience the various costuming efforts of your fellow Con-goers, and the Costumed Con-goers get the appreciation of having their costumes recognized. And I guess I win too because it means I can bring a fun activity to like-minded individuals. If you want to actually PLAY this game you can snag the board below and print it out. And if you’re at Wizard World Philadelphia, you can come pick up a board FROM ME (located in Row E, booth 36) and play it here today. If you get 5 costumes or cosplays that form a line, and you take photos of yourself with said costumes/cosplays, you can come to the Paeregrine.Cast booth and show me your winning board and photos and I will reward you with a full Paeregrine.Cast Sticker Set!
Win free stuff! Have fun doing it! Hooray Comic Con Cosplay Costume BINGO!
