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.
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.
Cosplaying can be physically demanding. It’s an art form that sometimes takes a lot out of a person during a day. So, to help cosplayers and friends of cosplayers have as much safe fun as possible, we’ll be doing a mini-series for a little while. It’ll cover a few things to account for when going out in costume.
I mentioned this when I talked about Rick and Morty, but the modern media landscape of including alternative dimensions has made cosplay somehow more within the canon than it already was.
Depending on where you live, you might be feeling the summer heat. The days will be long and full of bright, bright sun. So, what better time than now to cosplay as a character that uses fire?
