GenCon 2015 Panel Notes

marceline, adventure, time, cosplay, gencon, 2015

 

This is me cosplaying as Marceline (more photos to come) at GenCon, a gaming convention in Indianapolis.

And today, my friend and I are presenting at a panel. Our topic: Cosplay, Styling and the Geek-Chic Aesthetic. It’s all about everyday cosplay, what it shares in common with fashion and how it fills social needs. It’s today at 3 p.m., for anyone reading who is at the con.
