Baltimore Comic-Con Announces 2018 Costume Contest Winners


The Baltimore Comic-Con is happy to announce the winners of our 10th Annual Costume Contest. The contest took place this past Saturday, September 29, 2018 for both amateur and professional adults, and Sunday, September 30, 2018 for kids. Visually stunning costumes ranged from classic superheroes to video game and movie characters and beyond, and our contest has proven to be one of the most anticipated events at the show.

This year’s costume contest separated amateur adults from professional adults, and held a separate contest for amateur kids as well.

The grand prize winner for Best in Show Costume, and the recipient of the $1,000 cash prize, was Kelly Coffman for her “Sylvanas Windrunner from Heroes of the Storm” costume.

Special thanks go to everyone who entered the contest and showed their support, as well as to our sponsor,!
