Cosplay is a form of art worth exploring and examining. The team at Cosplay Boom is doing both of those things with their documentary series. They visit conventions and do more than compile video montages of cosplayers – they speak with them. They go in depth with cosplayers about why they got into the hobby, why they attend certain conventions, background on the characters they’re dressed as, and about how their costume was made.
The interviews are anywhere from a minute to a couple of hours long, and you can choose from dozens. It’s a great source for inspiration and learning. I’ve included a few of my favorites here, but you should visit Cosplay Boom on YouTube to see more.
