Around The Show
This area will showcase some of the special features of ECCC
For those who love to cosplay, and for those who admire the work and dedication of cosplayers. The Cospitality Lounge is new to ECCC this year, and it will live on the fourth floor of the convention center. It is home to a Cosplay Repair Station, Comic Book Characters for Causes, and a professional photographer who can take photos for you, as well as tables and chairs for you to get off your feet for a bit.
The Cosplay Repair Station is hosted by the Costume Club at the University of Washington. They specialize in quick fixes and have a wig station, sewing station, glue station and more; everything you need to make your costume beautiful again!
Location: WSCC Level 4, Room 400

Big Bot Pale Ale features a fresh balance of earthy hops and caramel malts, so this smooth pale ale is all you need to battle giant monsters or any other foes that come your way. Bring out your inner hero with this meta-human brew!
The ECCC Beer Garden will feature Big Bot Pale Ale on tap alongside other Ninkasi beers Dawn Of The Red, Total Domination, Lux, and Oatis. The ECCC Beer Garden will also have merchandise for sale, and a limited food menu as well!
