Exclamation COSPLAY DOCUMENTARY at Megacon! We need you!

Hey everyone,

I recently made some new friends (Hippojuice) trying to get together a documentary on cosplay. They don't know anything about cosplay and were intrigued by this widespread existing hobby and would like to shed more light on it for the general public. Right now, they just want to talk to as many cosplayers as possible to get as many perspectives as possible. So come on by and show off your costume, or if you're not in costume, just tell them about your experiences as a cosplayer.

Hit them up if you'd like more information. Here is their contact info.
Otherwise, go say hi at MegaCon and tell them what cosplay means to you or whatever you'd like about your costume!

Ps - Don't worry about them being weirdo's, I've met them before and they're totally cool. I assure you they won't throw you in the back of a van that says "CaNDy" on it and rape you.

I wouldn't mind. I will be going all three days as Batman Beyond (Friday and Sunday)And Candle Jack (Saturday) I'd be willing to tell them of cosplay. I still feel noobish in it all, but I think It'd be fun to help 'em out. xD I'll look into it. xD

Hey, thanks for posting this! I'd love to help out....I won't be walking around on Saturday, I'll just be hanging out in one spot until the costume contest (10 foot train and all). I should be easy to find, but I'll shoot them an email just in case!

Note! I'm not part of Hippojuice, I'm just a cheerleader. XD If you find me though, I'll gladly direct you to where they are. Or hang out, whatever.

Woohoo! Thank you, and omg Batman Beyond! That was always my favorite part of Saturday morning cartoons. I'll definitely need a photo. XD I had to mention the ps, because I was concerned about it myself at first. I made my bf come along for the pre-interview just in case.

Oh that's fine. Hippojuice wants to talk to as many people as possible to represent cosplay accurately. We all had to start somewhere! =D Maybe you could tell them all about how you first got into cosplay.

10 foot train?!?! Wow. Thanks for your willingness to participate. ^_^ I'm sure they'll find you!

Haha! Oh Freakazoid. I miss that cartoon. XD You shouldn't be hard to miss then! I think it's so fun when people get "in-character." Be sure to explain to them that it's what you're doing though. They might not get it since they don't really cosplay.

Of course! Costume construction is very important to cosplay. I'm sure they'd love to hear all about it.

I Love Documentaries!

I won't be there, but PM me if you need the obligatory boring academic in the tweed jacket to fill in the scholarly bits.
