‘The Heroes of Cosplay’ on SyFy

scifi-syfy-logoA new show coming to SyFy next month explores the life of serious cosplayers on the run up to conventions. Professionals such as Chloe Dykstra, Jessica Merizan and Holly Conrad will feature on The Heroes of Cosplay. It’ll show the amount of effort that is put into their work and explain what cosplay is and why they do it.


It’ll look at everything from costumes to make up and competing to staying in character at conventions. I’m looking forward to seeing the amount of detail put into costumes and how important accuracy is to cosplayers.

As I’ve said before on GS, I’m a massive fan of cosplay, both amateur and professional. Before now I’ve only had a glimpse into professional cosplay from the Nerdist show Just Cos hosted by Chloe Dykstra (who I’m a huge fan of). The show is great, but five minute clips once a week don’t give a huge amount of depth and information to the topic.

The show will premiere August 13th on Syfy. It’ll give an interesting insight into the world of professional cosplay and might give you ideas and tips for your own cosplay, so make sure you catch it!
