According to a press release, Boston Comic Con is happy to announce that the convention will go on this weekend as scheduled. They hope to stand as an example of the resilience of Bostonians in the wake of this horrific tragedy that happened at the Boston marathon this past Monday. The many statements of solidarity they have received from fans and guests alike have been very encouraging. They will be donating a portion of the art auction proceeds to the Red Cross for the Boston Marathon victims relief effort.
In light of the heightened security in the city we ask cosplayers to not bring prop weapons this weekend.
