If you’ve gamed for a long time, you’ve likely come across many unique, powerful, and terrifying enemies—and then defeated them. And a lot of design and artistic work went into that experience. It takes a lot of skill to create visually memorable monsters and aliens that stick in the mind long after you’ve finished mopping the floor with them.
Some of the most beloved science fiction series and movies have a tremendous number of alien races populating their backgrounds and planets. But, often because of real-world budget reasons, most of these aliens are humanoid, mostly defined by different heads or facial features. This means that the intrepid cosplayer that knows their way around makeup and a few other tools can bring a cosplay to another galaxy.
If you ever doubted the passion of nerdy love that is cosplay, then let me remind you of something mind-blowing: people will cosplay characters they’ve never seen.
Halloween is almost upon us. A time when costumes are not only expected but practically mandated. A time when a cosplayer has infinite opportunities to show off. There’s always a place where other like-minded partiers would deeply enjoy the craft of spookiness.
We’ve covered cosplays for couples, but what if you’re in a group? What if you and four others want to impress at the next convention?
The internet is full of unique and talented people—artists, creators, and comedians everywhere. And, wouldn’t you know it, many of them like to cosplay.
What’s cooler than a convention? How about a free-to-enter convention! On March 5th, The Clearwater Public Library System and Clearwater Parks & Recreation Department sponsored one in the Ross Norton Recreation Center.
If your inspiration for being a cosplayer was seeing some of the truly awe-inspiring costumes people have made, you’ve probably worried how you’d ever manage the same. Comparison might’ve claimed you, as it does many types of artists.
With the popularity of Harley Quinn as a cosplay choice, it was a no-brainer this would happen. Everyone loves a deranged villain with a chaotic esthetic.
Cosplaying can be hungry work. So, in this entry of Cosplay Care, we’ll look at a problem that comes hand in hand with dehydration: feeding a cosplayer. The food available at a convention center, or at nearby restaurants, are not necessarily going to be suited well to high-energy days of walking around. If outside food is allowed at the con you’re attending, making sure you have snacks on hand is a must.
