ColossalCon is a yearly gathering at a combination waterpark/convention center in Sandusky, Ohio. Due to its unique topography, the con has slowly gathered a reputation as the place where cosplayers can catch some rays, show a little skin, and otherwise turn the entirety of fandom into a wacky beach episode. ColossalCon 14 just went down and these early photos make us yearn for the clear waters and sunny skies of Ohio.
