Minnesota Conventions to Cosplay at in 2015

Hello, dear denisons of the MN geek & cosplay community.  I’m Brichibi Cosplays, and I’d like to welcome you to Cosplay Positive, where we live by one simple message: to love your cosplay is to love yourself.

Now that the new year has finally begun, it’s time to get into the meat, potatoes, and pocky of the cosplay scene: conventions!  What better place to show off your love for teenage ladies defending love and justice, or men dressed as bats who patrol the streets of Gotham?

Throughout the year, pockets of Minnesota welcome their beloved geeks, and many of the annual conventions are very cosplay friendly! This is a list of those conventions, big and small. Use it to help you plan your 2015 cosplay year!
