    Kia Sangria

    Kia Sangria

    Thank you for your patience in my brief unexpected hiatus! I'm hoping to be back with posting episodes in full force, starting with a wonderful conversation I had with Kia Sangria. After she reached out to being on my show I was ecstatic to have her on since that's never happened before. Learn more about her cosplay beginnings, love of anime alongside her blogging ventures and sponsorships! We also talk about her experience being a Black cosplayer in the community. This was such a fun chat and I hope you all enjoy 3

    NYCC's Metaverse

    NYCC's Metaverse

    This past weekend, NYCC had it's full blown outing virtually with this second run of what's called the Metaverse. Similar to a previous episode, this consisted of multiple panels being streamed through YouTube in addition to a beautifully crafted website that mimicked the convention look and feel. Of course as much as it did, the feeling of being at the Javits Center was absent and was something I missed throughout this weekend. Come hear my thoughts on the various panels I did watch in addition to what it was like browsing through the Metaverse's website. There's also teases of future episodes and my hopeful plans for the show as 2020 comes to a close!

    Maru + Full Time Content Creation

    Maru + Full Time Content Creation

    In this exciting and lengthy episode, I got to talk with Maru about a variety of things on top of learning her history with cosplay. Having just recently made the jump to being a full time content creator, she goes a bit into detailing her various streams of income and what her day is mostly like. Plus like always, we go on various tangents mostly about World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV and just Final Fantasy in general. Maru definitely has some gripes with certain games I'll tell you that much XD. She also talks about some of her recent cosplays and what it was like making them. This is one you guys don't want to miss!

    PAX Online 2020

    PAX Online 2020

    For this special 50th episode of CosplayBytes, I talk about my experience in viewing PAX Online from the comfort of my home thanks to the ongoing pandemic. Combining West and Aus, PAX had a variety of panels streaming across Twitch and I checked a few of them out when I was able to. In addition, I had the opportunity to interview several indie game developers regarding their upcoming games which were showcased at the convention! I also catch everyone up on the console generation shift that's going on plus my current and planned games which are on my backlog! This is a very important milestone for me and I can't thank you guys enough for all the support and advice given over the years I've produced this show. Special thank you to all my guests who have joined me in each episode leading up to this one. Here's to many more 3

    Content Creators + Quarantine

    Content Creators + Quarantine

    With the continued pandemic raging through the cosplay community, I wanted to take a look at how content creators have been handling themselves during this crazy time. My waifu for laifu Jaycee Cosplay joins me again with her perspective on this situation. Jess gives us a look as to how she's been able to produce content and do photoshoots during the last few months, along with her thoughts on online conventions and how things may change going forward. Not to mention the struggles she's had with booking hotels for Katsucon next year as well as her future cosplay plans afterwards. It seems like she's wanting to stick to casual modeling for a bit (which by the way, SHE LOOKS GORGEOUS in those recent pics) 3
    Things also get somewhat personal later on in this episode so I hope you enjoy ^_^.

    Online Conventions

    Online Conventions

    With the current state of the world through COVID, conventions have been cancelled/postponed throughout 2020. However, cons have been doing their best to adapt and initiate online offerings so that the spirit of conventions don't go away for this year. I discuss the most recent offerings with ReedPop's Metaverse as well as DC FanDome. Here I go into detail with the panels both events featured as well as the overall presentation of them. I talk about my favorite panels that were from each event, along with the vendor offerings on the Metaverse. Plus, I go into a discussion regarding Yaya Han's newest World of Cosplay book she released earlier this month, mentioning details and chapters from the book. With my ending remarks about hopeful future episodes, I hope you all enjoy this look at this temporary new norm for the cosplay and convention culture!
