Are you wondering what the deal is with these people running around in costume at conventions and events? Have you ever wondered where it started, where it came from? This week we’re taking a video tour back in time to the beginnings of the modern Cosplay Movement. Join us!
Though it seems to many a new and budding movement, Cosplay as we know it has existed for well over a Century. While it is more established as a fixture of mainstream culture in other countries than America, the USA is quickly growing to recognize the power of Cosplay, and the industry that surrounds it. This week we’re going to take a look into the visual world of Cosplay, from some of those who are closest to it. Enjoy!
When given the opportunity, wear a costume.

Adam Savage’s Love Letter to Cosplay
The journey to the Community of Cosplay is a unique one for everybody. This is a longer video, but is a very emphatic explanation of one person’s discovery of Cosplay, and it’s merits. I highly suggest giving it a watch.
