Comic Con Ukraine 2021 gathered more than 40 thousand fans in Kyiv
This weekend, a long-awaited event took place in Kyiv, the international convention of modern pop culture, Comic Con Ukraine 2021. The event gathered on the territory of the Art Factory Platform over 40 thousand fans of comics, movies, video games, board games and science fiction. To get to the festival you had to stand in a long line, but it was worth it.
At Comic Con Ukraine 2021, everyone found what they liked best. The Let’s Play area for sports fans was very popular, where the main sports competitions of the festival took place, and the King of the Mountain area was also popular, where 42 e-sports tournaments of Dota 2 (14 competitions) and CS: GO (28 competitions) were held, 336 people participated in these contests.
The general interest in the festival has shown that we have many fans of video games, comics, movies and cosplay, which are able to create the atmosphere of a great holiday. We are very glad that they liked our areas. Pop culture and e-sports complement each other perfectly, so we are not surprised that our activities have attracted the attention of many guests. Next time we will prepare even more surprises where you can have fun, – shared impressions of the festival Pavlo Kozhukhar, Development Director of Parimatch Ukraine .
The costumes of the festival guests, among which were many famous characters from movies, comics and video games, attracted no less attention. Apparently, they themselves were the main driving force that created the atmosphere of the West. They showed what it means to have fun. The owners of the brightest costumes constantly wanted to take selfies and, probably, next time the number of cosplayers will be even greater.
Fans also had meetings with famous actors of cult films and TV series – Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Mandalorets, The Witcher. Many especially remembered Helena Mankowska, who became a model of Lady Dimitrescu in the game Resident Evil: Village. Helena came in the image of a vampire, which caused a real excitement of all people.
That’s what I call a good party! Although I did not expect such a large number of visitors, I had a great time at the festival thanks to the love and support of people who came to Comic Con Ukraine in Kyiv, – Helena later shared on social networks.
The conversation with the British actress Anna Schaffer turned out to be interesting, as she admitted to the fans that after serious roles she dreams of starring in a light comedy. But she added that one of her main passions is historical drama, and she would love to play a strong woman with power in her hands.
In general, the festival turned out to be very large, which was a pleasant surprise for both participants and organizers. Comic Con Ukraine 2021 left the impression of a large-scale and grand event, but, most importantly, the festival will definitely grow and develop. So in a year we will have something even better. And this is definitely in the spirit of PM!
