Vienna COMIX convention
Vienna COMIX: A Comic And Cosplay Convention To Remember 27

Vienna COMIX is a small convention that took place for the first time in 2012, but it has already left its mark on the Austrian scene. In recent weeks, numerous articles have been published about the convention where comics aficionados from around Austria gather to share their love of comics.

The attendees at Vienna COMIX aren’t only interested in comics, though. The three-day convention also hosted numerous panels with internationally acclaimed guest speakers.


A lot has been written about how much comics can inspire young people to make the leap from reading comics to creating them. But what hasn’t been discussed as much is how beneficial it can be to focus on a very specific topic when you’re trying to break into the business. In this case, that topic is comix.

Whether you’ve been working in comics for a long time or you’re just starting out, it’s necessary to keep up with the latest developments in the scene both at home and abroad.

This is exactly what Vienna COMIX can offer: a chance for comics fans from elsewhere in Europe to share their own artistic know-how and experience.

Vienna COMIX isn’t simply a place where comic enthusiasts get together and discuss their favorite subject. It’s also a place where they can learn new skills to go on and develop their own artistic style.

That’s why we’re expecting to see an even higher turnout at this year’s Vienna COMIX, and it definitely won’t be long before this small convention becomes a major player in the European comix scene.

Of course, there will be cosplay contests to judge the best costumes and if you don’t do or want to dress up, no need to worry. There are plenty of quests and activities to keep you busy throughout the entire day.

This event is definitely worth your while! And if comic books aren’t really your thing, there are also table games and card games. You can even spend the entire day playing your favorite tabletop games.

Cosplay is a popular pastime at Vienna COMIX. Cosplayers from all over the world come to the convention ready to show their costumes, take pictures and have a great time with other attendees.

If you’re new to cosplay, here are some tips for getting started:

  • Choose a character to dress up as.
  • Research your character’s costume and make any necessary adjustments beforehand.
  • Find appropriate props or accessories that will help bring your character to life.
  • Finally, start practicing your poses in front of the mirror.

Think about what you want from a cosplay convention before attending. Some people enjoy being photographed, while others don’t have an interest in this aspect of the hobby. You can also decide if you want to team up with a friend or go solo.

Cosplaying is a great way to express your interests and creativity through the characters you choose to play. There’s nothing more rewarding than bringing your favorite characters to life and making new friends along the way.

Conventions are a great place to have fun, meet new people and learn about your favorite characters. If you’re too shy- don’t worry!

A lot of cosplayers feel the same way, but there’s nothing wrong with taking photos from afar with your camera phone. There are usually photographers at conventions who would be more than happy to help you take your first cosplay photos.
