2021 has become more or less a makeup year of the abysmal year that is 2020. Conventions are being held this year but at a lesser capacity. Are you excited to finally attend one of these major comic cons (see list below) or are you holding out another year? The annual tradition for me is to attend a con once a year but due to 2020 I could not do that. I would rather not hold out another year because I crave the merchandise, cosplays, guests, panels, props, toys, goods, and games! To not attend a con in 2021 is perfectly fine since the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing. If you do attend a con this year I suggest following their local guidelines.
Tip: Create a cosplay that requires a mask so that you not only have fantastic cosplay but you will already satisfy the mask requirement that most places require. The list below shows the major cons in the US but there are more cons out there!
