Following its premier on Netflix, Neon Genesis Evangelion cosplay have spiked in popularity and now an official gathering has been confirmed for FanimeCon 2021.
Evangelion cosplayers who couldn’t showcase their work this year will be delighted to learn that the gathering has been rescheduled for FanimeCon 2021.
Evangelion Gathering will be hosted during FanimeCon by Dark Lord of the Fluff Cosplay and Samael Cosplay. No official date, time or location has been announced yet (since its too early in the year). However it’s expected that the cosplay gathering will take place on May 30th.
As the title suggests, the gathering is open to all Evangelion cosplayers. This includes the original series and the Rebuild film saga. It should be noted that all cosplays must follow convention policy.
This is one of several gatherings that was originally set to take place during the 2020 event before it was cancelled. Other cosplay gatherings set for 2021 include Devil May Cry and the LGBTQ+ Gathering. FanimeCon 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic.
FanimeCon 2021 is one of the largest fan organized anime conventions and will take place on the Memorial Day weekend. Check out some of the amazing cosplayers form the 2019 event.
Set 15 years after cataclysm attack, Neon Genesis Evangelion follows the story of Shinji as he is recruited by his father to pilot an Evangelion into combat against creatures dubbed Angels. The series has been highly praised for deconstruction the mech genre while also exploring complex religious themes that explore the meaning of individuality, freedom and personal choice.
