From now on, Never let it be said, that Sri Lanka does not do Comic Con.
On the 27th, 28th and 29th of November the comic geeks and gamers of Sri Lanka came together for Lanka Comic Con, the first of it's kind, and Sri Lanka's Cyber Games Festival where Sri Lankas best gamers battled it out playing COD, Halo, Mortal Combat, Counterstrike, DOTA and much more. Organised by Gamer.lk, Sri Lanka's Gaming and e-sports comunity, in association with the Geek Club of Sri Lanka.
Lanka Con was full of comic books, cosplay competitions, fan art, tabletop gaming and cyber gaming. There were people dressed up as everything from Superman to Kylo Ren to Hermione Granger to the Super Mario Brothers. Whether it was DC, Marvel, Anime, Manga or Star Wars, Lanka Con had it all!
This Comic Con was somewhat of a safe haven and not just for Comic book geeks, but for anyone to be themselves by being someone else, be it a hero or a villain, and to express their love for the stories and games we live for.
There was some pretty awesome and hilarious cosplay going on, and some characters who you never thought would be in the same room together, were killing each other.
One of my personal favorites....
Our Sri Lankans really went all out with their fan art.
For a small country, we have a lot of heart, and sure our Comic Con may not have been as big as SDCC or NYCC, but it was epic and unforgettable for us. For Sri Lanka's first Comic Con, it exceeded all expectations.
Let the world know that when we do Comic Con, we do it right.
