I would like to talk about cosplay in Ukraine.
Not everyone knows that I am also cosplayer since 2007. Progress in Ukrainian cosplay world really increased over eleven years. And I like to be a part of it 🤗. When I starting out, there was no cosplay festivals - only small parties in clubs or something like this. Only in 2008 year, first festivals have started to conduct in different cities. Now I can say that the today’s quality of craft, costumes and photoshoots was pure sсience fiction at that time 😲
As for today, lists of photo studios, cosplay photographers, workshops that can make costumes of any complexity are common things. You just need to have wish, fantasy and money 💸. I remember that time in 2007-2008 when we exchanged with compact discs, communicated in “diary”-websites, forums and in social networks. Sometimes I am feeling nostalgic about that time because of atmosphere. There are competition (sometimes aggressive), desire to be “better, stronger, faster” and “holy wars” now. However, there are also great progress in quality, festivals, information, possibilities and of course increase of community members 👨👩👧👦👨👨👦👦👩👩👧👧👩👩👧
When did you start your cosplay journey? How it was that time and what changed?
Here is my cosplay of GG.
