I have over 10 years of experience as a cosplay comissioner. 4. While we appreciate the concern for low attendance, we are a small show in a small venue that could not hold all of you even if we were to have cosplaying. “Oh, this is chill,” TJ says eventually, hands on hips. Drachnik couldn’t put the number on how much she spent on materials, but she says the cosplay took a couple of months of intensive labor to put together.
