Parents, this is for you too, you will have the chance to help refine your child’s cosplay skills through the “Cosplay with your Kids” workshop.
There will be over 100 vendors available, food trucks and a geeky quartet to liven things up. Rutgers Comic Con prides itself on widespread accessibility for all families. “Guests can enjoy high-caliber programs and rub elbows with esteemed artists and writers, but it is just as important to us that it remains accessible to everyone across the board,” says program assistant Miranda Powell.
