Hero Con Gallery: Everyone Can Be A HERO

This past Free Comic Book DayThe Dalton School held its very own Hero Con. This annual event is a celebration of diversity, social justice and creativity.

This event was free for all students, faculty, families and friends! It featured an artist alley, cosplay contest, free comics and swag bags, a Harry Potter floor, VR, video game tournaments, archery, panel discussions, author signings, and a musical performance by the students with a tribute to the late Stan Lee!!

I was super happy to be a part of this amazing experience. I participated in my first panel alongside 6 other super talented cosplayers where we discussed our journey in cosplay, and the importance of representation and being able to cosplay who ever you want! We also got to hang with the students, judge the cosplay contest and just geek out. Seeing the smiles on the kids faces, this is what cosplay is all about. Just having fun, being a role model for the kids, and showing that everyone can be a hero!
