Passers-by as they walked through Parliament House on Saturday thought they had been tricked when they saw Vikings, ghost hunters, the storm The goblins cross the street.

It must be said that the costumes of some of the characters who went to the convention center were larger than life.

“It’s about three to four months of full-time work. You should really like it!” Chloe Raymond laughs, sitting on stilts in his handmade armor right outside the video game Drops.

Making costumes is also a family affair for Kristel Boyer and Julie Levesque, and this first edition of Comiccon without sanitary measures since 2019 is a relief for the mother-daughter duo.

“It is much easier, without the masks, to see people marvel in front of the beautiful costumes. It feels good,” says Ms. Boyer, who dressed as a character from a realm. Jinshin effect.

Visitors from all over

Participants came from all over Quebec, and even from abroad, to enjoy the event.

While some came to attend the various conferences and activities on offer, it was above all a desire to interact with people who share the same passion that motivated them to come.

“Saturday tickets went just in time to say it doesn’t make sense. We will almost certainly pass 10,000 participants last year,” confirms event spokesperson, Jason Rockman.
