Guiness World Record Attempt for Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Female Superheroes
6:00 - 7:00 pm in front of the Library
After the con closes, we have one last event to close the whole thing off right! We need cosplayers, photographers, press, videographers, and stewards to help in our Guiness World Record Attempt for the the Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Female Superheroes.
To get involved in the attempt and keep up with all the details, join the event on Facebook! This record has never been attempted so we are guaranteed to make it. We will be the first! This is meant to be a fun and supportive event to showcase powerful women in media and entertainment.
What is a Female Super Hero? Any costumed character who fights crime, villains, and saves people in a modern setting. This means like the Incredibles would count, but the heroes of Legend of Zelda won’t because that is considered fantasy and not a super hero story. This also means that Sailor Moon counts but things like Naruto or Bleach wouldn’t.
For gray area heroes, characters like Harley Quinn or Emma Frost would count, and folks like Madame Hydra is a straight up villain and would not.
We intentionally worded it as People dressed as Female Super Heroes so the gender of the actual persons dressed up doesn’t matter.
Note: this is not the convention’s personal interpretation of what qualifies as a super hero. We are trying to align our guidelines with what Guinness will accept. If you still have questions, please stop by the event on Facebook and let us know!
