Cosplay is different things to different people. Art. Expression. Therapy. It’s a
way to combat misogyny in nerd culture, a way to combat loneliness, and for
some, a way to pay the bills. Cosplay – “costume play” – has gone from a niche hobby popularized in Japan to a new kind of pop art that influences fashion designers, draws millions on social media, and packs hundreds of thousands
into conventions across the planet.
‘This is Cosplay’ will explore the characters, events, and issues that frame the world of cosplay, while celebrating those who represent the passions of an entire community.
