Night Darling will be hosting the First ever Maui Comic Con cosplay contest along with The NERDWatch and Maui Comic and Collectibles. Make sure to bring your “A” Game!
Maui Comic Con gives local cosplayers a voice, and a stage to be proud of who they are. We as cosplayers are able to come together as one and be comfortable in our own skin and be surrounded by fellow nerds for a weekend. The feeling of Ohana and Aloha is such a big part of Maui Comic Con. Every year we see bigger numbers of attendees that come not only compete in the cosplay competition but those who want to be surrounded by the culture that Maui Comic Con brings to the table. Being who you are, let alone being a nerd is much harder these days with societies pressure of who they want you to be. This convention and cosplay competition lets the community come to a place where being themselves is all we want. As the creator of the official Maui Comic con Night Darling cosplay competition, my vision and goal is to give these nerds a place to shine! A place of no judgement and to boost their confidence. The nerd community has given me so much support and confidence to be where I am now in my cosplay career. This is my way of giving back, this is my way of giving our youth a solid foundation of confidence. This is our way as a community of giving a brighter and more understanding future to all the nerds and geeks in Hawaii. This movement of positivity and creativity would be nothing without the help of Maui Comic Con, UH Maui and the nerd community. Below is a few testimonials that I have gathered from fellow cosplayers on why they love to cosplay. These are indeed their own words, thoughts and feelings. Below is the reason why I give my 110%.
