Cosplay Your Way: In Color

Cosplay Your Way: In Color is a documentary from Cosplay Your Way centered around the discovery and journey of POC cosplayers in the world of cosplay. The documentary features novice as well as expert cosplayers that are taking the art of cosplay to new heights, while ensuring that people of color who contribute to the craft are seen and recognized for their contributions.

Cosplay artists discuss “how to” and “why to” cosplay in addition to how they deal with the highs and lows of being people of color in the world of cosplay, from racism and body insecurities, to how the craft is therapeutic. The documentary spotlights those who have not only participated in the art, but used the artistic expression to open up the door to budding careers as designers, photographers and foamsmiths.

Cosplay is more than a hobby; it is a lifestyle! Use your name, express your style and do it your way!
