Jessica Nigri

Never being one that’s cosplayed myself, just a person that enjoys the medium, I couldn’t help but tune into SyFy‘s Heroes of Cosplay – a reality series that chronicles (somewhat) new and veteran costumers as they go from con to con in their latest garbs to be judged and take top position for fame and money. As with any reality series, some (very obviously edited) drama ensued. Some superficial BS, which has sent the cosplay community in a fritz. When I say fritz, I mean fans taking to Twitter and saying, “Well cosplay community, brace yourselves for the newsfeed attacks and people’s opinions.” Well, I guess, since I’m writing this, I’m guilty as charged. What I’d like to do, though, is discuss the abhorrent editing from SyFy and how its depiction of cosplayers and misrepresented opinions is actually hurting the community.
