Cobb library is holding its first ever Mini Con with a cosplay contest

Cobb County’s $10 million library that opened in January is putting that new building to geeky use Saturday.

The 28,000-square foot Sewell Mill Library & Cultural Center is hosting MiniCon, which boasts five hours of activities that’ll make a nerd happier than movies that stick to canon.

There will be workshops on everything from digital inking to fleshing out your own comic book characters.

This translates to "Get Ready To Nerd It Up In Cobb On Saturday" in Wakandan, the language used by Marvel's Black Panther and his nation, according to TypeWakanda.com.

Designer Tanya Woods will also be there describing how she made Dora Milaje costumes from the Black Panther at the request of Marvel Comics.

There will be a cosplay contest; contestants need to be signed up before 4 p.m.

And, yes, costumes in general are encouraged.

Be sure to look out for the 501st Legion of stormtroopers and the Dungeons & Dragons games.

You can check out the details and whole schedule here.
