These nine constantly defy odds and race against the clock to transform themselves into amazing fictional characters that push the boundaries between fantasy and reality, all in hopes of impressing the convention judges to win a cash prizes and take their cosplay stardom to new heights.
This show is awesome!! Let’s out this in perspective, these people are ordinary people that make costumes at home, and they are amazing!!! They don’t have the resources like faceoff. They do their own costumes and makeup. They build their own armor and props. They not only wear the costumes they act the part!
This show is awesome! No one cries about copyrights, they get no help from the creators, no funding assistance especially when some costumes are hundreds of dollars!
It’s crazy that these people make them themselves! When my friends and I were younger we made costumes yearly for the NY renaissance fair at sterling forest. People used to think we worked there. My mother would give me $50-100 and take us to the rag shop and off we went, but making medieval costumes don’t compare to what they are making!
I just watched the emerald city episode, I was surprised that a bunch of foam rubber beat the steampunk storm trooper…
And it also beat hellgirl are you kidding me… I believe that having Yaya as a judge is bad, because she is prejudice toward the regulars and doesn’t want any of them to amass the same celebrity status as her or even perhaps surpass her, so she will keep knocking them down. Keep an eye out for that as the season goes on!
Can you make a pajelehoocho?
