It was Video Dance Parties at high school dances.  It was highly anticipated events such as the Video Music Awards that everyone watched and discussed the next day.  And if you were a teenager from a small town visiting Toronto, the coolest thing you could do was visit the MuchMusic building.

As the sun sets today, Katsucon 2019 is a memory. It will be remembered as a con that defined itself based on your badge! HAHA!

But beyond that, cosplayers from far and wide graced us with their presence. Some set the bar for this year’s expectations, others were unique. Many of course were just simply too cool and the selection was diverse.
