A Guide to Film and TV Cosplay by Holly Swinyard Paperback Book

Have you ever wanted to escape into a comic book and become your favourite superhero? Or run away into the world of Disney princesses? Well, who says you can't? Maybe it's time you get your cosplay on!

Cosplay is a hobby that is sweeping the globe, you can see it at comic cons, book launches, movie screenings, and even on popular TV shows such as The Big Bang Theory and Community. A mix of exciting craft skills, heady escapism, and passion for pop culture, it's easy to see why cosplay has become so popular with people no matter who they are, because now they can be anyone they want, and so can you.

But how, why, and where could you have a go at starting out in the wonderful world of cosplay?

With a little bit of help from this handy, dandy guide to cosplay, you can get stuck in. Learn about the history of the hobby (it's been around longer than you'd think!), get your head around picking your first costume, find out how about all the amazing skills people are using to make these costumes, and perhaps even try a few yourself. Who knows, you might be rocking out as Captain Marvel or Flynn Rider at the next big comic con! (And don't worry, there's a guide to comic con in here too.)

AUTHOR: A cosplayer and lover of all things ""geek"" since they were 15, Holly Rose Swinyard is now a pop culture journalist and editor, running the cosplay magazine, The Cosplay Journal. They have also written on cosplay, pop culture and the need for ""escapist play for adults"" for national publications and on BBC Radio 4. It would be a shock to find them anywhere but their sewing machine, or scrawling notes for the next exciting project.
