Ep. 5- A Cosplay Dream Come True

fan made podcast

Years after watching it all fall apart, these intrepid cosplayers finally manage to pull together one of their dream group cosplays.

From construction to comic convention, we discuss the surprise successes and the extraordinary fails leading up to the cosplay debut, as well as what’s it’s like to bring a comic book character to life– especially when the Rat Queens (Image Comics/Shadowline) are so near and dear to our hearts.

On this episode of the Fan Made podcast expect pro tips, lessons learned, and a fair amount of distraction.

As always, stick around to the very end where we geek out about everything from ‘Avengers: Endgame’ to ‘Detective Pikachu’ and the result of a Ryan Reynolds character mash-up cosplay. (Sexy Detective Deadpool Pikachu, anyone?)
