Cosplayers Reveal What Their Significant Others Think Of Their Hobby [VIDEO]

Fashion for Nonhumans


Last October at the New York Comic Con, my FemmeDoctor cosplay group was interviewed by the crew from Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist channel. Part of what we talked about has finally made it online in what turned out to be an interesting look at cosplayers and dating. Some stories are sweet, some, a little kinky but it’s a respectable look into what cosplayers significant others thing of the hobby (you can catch me at 0:56). It’s part of Nerdist’s larger “Just Cos” series and the videos have been pretty great so far.
