Well, it’s been in the works for a while now, but things have been up and running long enough where I thought it was finally time to let you all know the news. As a personal side-project, I wanted to start up a cosplay website as I’ve sort of been hooked on the concept since I first discovered it writing here years ago. There’s just something about people dressing up in elaborately made costumes of pop culture icons that’s just so damn cool to me, and I didn’t see many non-Tumblr, non-Deviantart blog-type sites out there focusing on the scene. I wanted to make a site to put the spotlight on the cosplayers and photographers for all their hard work.
And so Cosplay Couture was born. I designed it myself in photoshop, my web man GrandmasterB put it all together and NattyB hooked me up with ads to keep the lights on. It’s been up for a few months now, and I’ve posted close to 150 galleries spanning comics, movies, TV shows and video games. I do about three a day, so if you like girls in badass costumes (and guys, but it’s female dominated scene to be sure), it might be a place to bookmark and check in with every day. Also, none of this affects my duties at Unreality FYI, and I’m writing just as much as ever here.
To give you a taste of what I’ve put up so far, below you can find fifteen of my favorite galleries on the site so far. I think you’ll agree that they’re pretty incredible. But first, all the info:
