Saint John has recently seen a bump in cosplayers. They’ve made a good showing at a local gaming convention, but I kept having people ask me how to get into Cosplay and where do people meet? Without a solid answer I took matters into my own hands and scheduled a monthly meet up at my store.
I am incredibly happy about the turn out! We’ve had upwards of 20 people come out to discuss their projects, share tips and techniques, and genuinely encourage others to explore this creative medium.
The talent that our little community has is tremendous and seeing new people, like myself, start the path to making costumes, trying make-up, and figuring things out has been inspirational. After every meeting I find myself eager to get to my workshop to get progress on my projects. I hope others feel the same way!
I can’t wait to see how everyone looks on May 5th for Free Comic Book Day and to join them in costume in the near future at other events!
