Episode 20: Contests and Diversity with Pros and Cons Cosplay Carmilla Jo's Cosplay Corner

    • Hobbies

PROS AND CONS COSPLAY is comprised of two multi-award winning cosplayers from Missouri who dabble in all areas of cosplay from craftsmanship, performance, judging, and contest directing. Pro enjoys projects that require a lot of embellishment and intricate detail such as embroidery, bead-work and painting. Con prefers projects that require challenging the laws of physics and using unconventional building techniques such as wig styling, larger than life builds, and historic fabric manipulation. They love talking shop about cosplay builds, and creating inclusive environments in the cosplay community. You can find them on Instagram at instagram.com/prosandconscosplay, Facebook at facebook.com/prosandconscosplay and on Kofi: https://ko-fi.com/prosandcons
