Cosplayer Danquish has confirmed that he will be a guest at the inaugural BoroughCon event. The new pop culture expo, which caters to New York City’s outer boroughs, will take place May 26-29 at the Queens campus of St. John’s University.
Danquish is a cosplay, ninja, giant robot, and Shiba Inu fan. He got into costuming in 2010, when he discovered he could extend his love for recreating his favorite characters to more than just once a year at Halloween. Danquish has attended numerous cons, making great friends along the way and meetings some of his personal cosplay and creative heroes – all while bringing smiles to fans who share the passion for characters he strives to recreate.
He joins colleague Monika Lee as an attraction to BoroughCon’s cosplay track. The names of other celebrity cosplayers will be divulged in early January. Well-known guests in the anime, comics and manga, gaming and live-action film/TV/stream tracks will then be announced.
BoroughCon’s leadership team expects around 20,000 attendees to what they envision as the first running of an annual Memorial Day weekend event.
