Long Beach Comic Con 2018 Recap

This weekend the Pure Costumes team headed to Long Beach Comic Con, for a weekend of cosplay hunting! This smaller con is perfect for getting the comic book convention experience without the crowds! At Long Beach Comic Con, you can find hundreds of vendors and artists, panels and industry professionals! You’ll even find things you won’t find at your typical con! At LBCC you can watch live wrestling matches or catch movies at a Geek Film Festival! While we were there, we were on the hunt for our favorite part of conventions, the costumes! Here’s your Long Beach Comic Con 2018 recap!
