Inside Cosplay With ‘Behind The Seams’ Series!

IMG_1344

Are you interested in the process of crafting costumes and props? Curious about how different cosplayers approach their hobby? Well, you can of course come to our Cosplay And Photography Expo this August in New Hampshire. But you should also check out Behind the Seams!

Behind the Seams is the new YouTube series we are doing with one of our CAPE panelists, Lucky Grim Creative. In the first episode she jumps to what is nearly the end of the creative process for many cosplayers — judging guidelines for competitions. Panelists and frequent costume contest judges Human Sushi Cosplay, Glitch Cos and Mhysa Cosplay (all CAPE panelists as well) answer questions sent in from the Internet.

A couple of quick highlights: No, bigger costumes don’t mean better. And yes, they can tell from across the room if you bought it (and that doesn’t have to be a bad thing). Also, they weigh on on the idea of celebrity judges, with reasonable opinions and suggestions (sorry, cosplay drama queens).

The episode is nearly 30 minutes long, so grab a snack and a notebook, and check out the video below. Stay tuned for more in the future, and be sure to check out CAPE, where you can go into much more depth on each topic in panels and workshops. Special thanks to Double Midnight Comics for letting us use its game room.

Because Rhode Island Comic Con has always been held in November, the amount of time for available light is pretty short compared to many conventions. Luckily, since I was bouncing a flash off the back wall of the mezzanine ar...
