Pop Culture Happenings: Cosplay, Deadlandz, more


Cosplay Build Weekend / Fri, Sept 9 – Sun, Sept 11
Edmonton Comic and Entertainment Expo is just around the corner—do you have your costume yet? If you’re a last-minute person, this workshop, hosted by the good folks of Theatre Garage, will be good for you since they’ll teach you all of the Cosplay building skills in just one weekend. You can book for yourself or a group of friends. But, book fast since the class size maxes out at just eight people to ensure everyone can get help from the instructor.

Deadlandz / Sat, Sept 17 (12 pm)
Do you think you have what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse? Well, here’s your chance to test those survival skills in this real-life interactive zombie apocalypse simulation event where you’ll be forced to run, hide and fight for your life in order to beat the undead. The main event is 18-plus, but there will be family-friendly activities going on as well. Visit simulationevents.com for more info. (Silver Creek Paintball [south of Camrose, AB], $59)

Geek Out: An Unforgivingly Nerdy Burlesque / Fri, Sept 23 (8 pm)

Attendees are encouraged to dress up since there will be prizes for the best costume. (Chvrch of John, $5 in advance, $10 at the door)
