Even though you might not be a cosplayer yourself, we all dress up and play make-believe, whether it’s doing drag or just dressing up for a party or even pretending you’re going to yoga on your Instagram story when really you’re going to Denny’s for Moons Over My-Hammy. Speaking of Hammy … My guest today designs, creates and dresses up in costumes professionally. In the past, he’s transformed into Robin, Aquaman, Gambit from the X-Men, the Green Lantern, and Captain America. The list goes on and on.
But even though it sounds like all fun and games, traveling the world dressing up as your favorite superheroes isn’t always a dream. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s usually a dream. Stick around, and we’ll hear all about the ups and downs of being a pro cosplayer in the age of Instagram and Patreon.
