Another exciting addition to ETSU-Con is Cosplay Kasterborous is a (mainly) Doctor Who themed group. They bring a to-spec TARDIS and Dalek based on the design from the Classic Doctor Who episode Destiny of the Daleks to conventions. They also bring very accurate costumes from the show and interact with con-goers as the character they are portraying, as well as give several panels based in multiple genres, not exclusively Doctor Who.
Last, but certainly not least, this year we are bringing you guys a unique group of professional cosplayers! The group is composed of BattleCat cosplay, The Real Redneck Geek and Laura Cupcake Cosplay! Battlecat Cosplay was featured on Season 2 of Days Til DragonCon. A twelve week web-series about preparing cosplays for Dragoncon 2015. The Real Redneck Geek won Southern Cospitality's Prop Maker of the Year for 2013. Also Laura Cupcake Cosplay won 3rd place in cosplay at the Nashville expo! They will be holding panels at the con as well as handing out free autographed prints!
