Baltimore Comic-Con Announces 2021 Costume Contest Winners

The Baltimore Comic-Con and Hard Rock Cafe Baltimore have announced the winners of our 12th Annual Costume Contest. The contest took place on Saturday, October 23, 2021 for both amateur and professional adults, and Sunday, September 22, 2021 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, for cosplayers and fans alike.

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