Body Positivity in the Cosplay Community
hosted by DJ & Ttrle
Being a cosplayer is tough. Finding the right materials for your cosplay, sewing it up, foam crafting, woodworking, metalworking…. The list goes on. After all that, the last thing anyone wants to deal with is a negative critique or snide remark on your hard work based on your physical appearance. In this panel, we will share and discuss what body positivity is, how to move past negativity and people who want to bring you down and share exercises on how to deal with these situations when they arise, because cosplay is hard enough without people who want to tear you down. Come join us and learn how we as a nerd community can pull together, rather than break apart! See you there!
