Shawicon 2023: Friendly Cosplaying at Our Favorite Pop Culture Event [Gallery]

Dolores Umbridge and Rita Skeeter - Shawicon 2023

For the first time in 3 years, our favorite con in the province of Quebec is back! Shawicon is a small and super friendly pop culture event that usually takes place yearly in the city of Shawinigan, Quebec, but due to the pandemic, the event was postponed multiple times until this year!

Featuring wonderful cosplayers, artists, and actors, the convention offers the best of what geek culture has to offer, including parties, shows, and beer!

Our favorite part of the event? Definitely meeting Robert Maillet, the 7″ tall Acadian giant that played in 300, Sherlock Holmes, Pacific Rim, and more! He was also Kurrgan in the WWE. What a nice guy! Here is a picture of my girlfriend (La Mamanista when she writes on the site), with the man. Look at his hand compared to her head!

So without further ado, here are our cosplay photos of the weekend!
