Cosplay groups attending


Please remember, just because someone is dressed up like your favorite character….please ASK before you:

#1.  Take a photo of them

#2.  Shake their hand or give them a hug


Just because you KNOW the character they are dressed up like, does NOT mean you know that person.  It’s always better to be polite.




Group #1 confirmed that will be attending in 2019:

The Newaygo Ghostbusters~!  More info on their group coming soon.



Group #2 that will be appearing at our 2019 event:


The Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club


The Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club (MMCC) is a Star Wars-themed costuming group that designs its costumes around iconic Star Wars characters Boba and Jango Fett.  While some members choose to portray the Fetts, along with other Mandalorian characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels, the vast majority of members choose to do completely custom armor.  This is something that sets the Mercs apart from other Star Wars costuming groups, who tend to keep to characters visually represented in the Star Wars movies, games, novels, etc.  Each Mandalorian can do whatever they want with their armor, provided it stays within the guidelines set down by the group’s Costume Requirement Lists (CRLs).  The MMCC prides itself on being an inclusive and friendly club, adopting the Mandalorian tradition that ANYONE can be a Mandalorian, regardless of race, religion, or creed.  Beyond building awesome armor and looking cool at conventions, the Mercs are highly involved in raising funds for charity to help children in need, among many other things.  At the end of the day, though, we’re just simple people trying to make our way in the universe.

Group #3 that will be appearing at our 2019 event:


The Finest: A GI JOE Costume Club

Just received confirmation that “The Finest: A GI JOE Costume Club” group will be joining us again in 2019~!



About their group:
A charity costume group raising money for Veterans and rescuing shelter animals! Founded in 2007, The Finest: A G.I. Joe Costuming Club is the premier G.I. Joe costuming group in the world, with hundreds of members across five continents. They exhibit or attend more than 100 conventions each year (worldwide), where they raise money for military charities. Since 2014, their convention appearances have allowed them to raise more than $50,000 for organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project, the USO, and most recently K9s for Warriors. The Central Defense Garrison covers Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio and wants you to stop by their booth to learn how you can help their charitable causes, become a member of the club, or just share a love of G.I. Joe and great costumes!

Please bear in mind we are NOT the group that held a comic-con type event
at the same location last year.  We will NOT charge any non-profit cosplay groups.
