ConGlomeration is elated to announce that Lana “Always River” Highfill will be a Featured Cosplayer at our 2018 convention.

Many of you may remember Lana from her appearances during our 2017 Cosplay Program, and she was so well received we invited her back to help anchor our 2018 cosplay panels and serve as a judge at our 2018 Cosplay Masquerade.

Lana has been cosplaying as River Song from Doctor Who since 2014, and her alter ego was named by none other than the 10th Doctor himself. “David Tennant asked me, ‘Are you always River?’ And there you go. Why yes, Doctor, I am.” She’s won a dozen awards and accolades for her River Song cosplay, including “Best Masquerade Performance” at ConGlomeration 2017.

You can learn more about “Always River” — including some details on her incredibly accurate costumes and props — at her Facebook page, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, or blog.
