FAN MEETUP RECAP: Cosplay 101
Written By Alecia Noel (Fan Meetup Ambassador, Vancouver Chapter)
What is cosplay? It means costume play. It’s where super fans create their favourite looks from iconic characters. Sounds fun, but it can also be an overwhelming hobby to get into.
That’s where the Cosplay 101 meetup came in. This virtual panel addressed various stages of cosplay, from creating costumes from items you already own, to buying costumes, to making your own. We also discussed wig basics and contacts!
This event was created to help ease the stress of getting started in the cosplay realm and remind cosplayers and future cosplayers that ALL cosplay is valid cosplay, and we had an awesome group of folks tune in and share tips and support each other.
There are all kinds of incredible virtual Fan Meetups going on in the Vancouver chapter.
