IN PRODUCTION: THE LIFE OF A COSPLAYER DOCUMENTARY
Updated: May 28, 2019
This cosplayer documentary let you take a look behind the curtain at the lifestyle of a professional cosplayer with a new documentary currently in production at Fade 2 Black Productions. More than just costumed players attending comic book conventions, professional cosplayers have made a career and an art form out of a community that is quickly rising in popularity.
Production began in May 2016 at the Megacon convention in Orlando as we get a taste of the lifestyle and dedication these artists have to their craft. The documentary explores the hard work, sleepless nights, marketing efforts, and exhausting travel schedules these individuals pour into their passion.
Longtime cosplayer, Carlos Blanchard, takes us on a tour backstage of the industry and introduces us to some of the “cosfamous” players such as Ani-Mia, IvyDoomKitty, LeeAnnaVamp, Kristin Hughey, Jenifer Ann, Rosanna Rocha, and others.
The documentary will also explore art of making the costumes themselves, and what kind of social media presence and marketing it takes to build a following and a loyal fan base.
