Planet Comic Con proved yet again that the Kansas/Missouri area has some of the most talented comic, costume and prop artists in the country coming to its event! Chris Jackson, PCC point man, is not only one of the nicest but also one of the most talented event Coordinators in the country.
This event has it all! This year that “all” included Stan Lee, Manu Bennet, George Takai, Ivy DoomKitty, IBOTks, Ultra Girls Cosplay and so many other’s, the fan lines were insane!
Everyone is so friendly here, cosplayers were massively approachable, and the camaraderie was so strong it was felt in the air!
Incredibly talented photographers roamed the floor, taking fantastically professional photos and sharing them openly online. All of the photographs in this article are courtesy of Chris Dorsey, a photographer in the Kansas City area. All of his photographs were posted within two days of the event. Anyone who takes pictures, or attends conventions and waits for pictures knows that this is seldom seen. His tireless efforts are always appreciated by the local Cosplay community. Providing the con pictures free to everyone, he is not only extremely talented but also altruistic and generous.
Planet is one of the most cosplay friendly events in the country and in my top five favorite conventions. I give it a con score of 4.8 out of 5. Entry fees are reasonable, hotels have affordable rates and food is delicious with a fair market price. Haven’t been here? Come! To be honest I got a little teary-eyed when I left – it’s like that! This costume community is so loving, encouraging, volunteer oriented and wonderful in all respects. Want to join in and prep for next year? KC Cosplay & Photography is the group to join! See you next year!
