The Cosplay Journal is a coffee table journal, focusing on the Diversity and Craft of cosplay. We want to show that not only can anyone from any walk of life be involved in cosplay, but also that we are all capable of learning new skills, creating amazing things and bringing joy into our own and other people’s lives through the art form of costume making.
The first volume features “Craft Focus” articles on Sewing, Armour Build and Make Up, as well as interviews with cosplayers who have taken their path with their hobby, some becoming professionals, some simply being the perfectionist amateur. We ask “Are Cosplay Guests Worth It?” in our opinion piece and give you a look into the everyday life of the cosplayer, getting inside their work and head space to show you the hard work that goes into these wonderful creations. All of this is accompanied by images of cosplayers from around the UK, showcasing the amazing skill and artistry that lives in this community.
