The Cosplay Journal Vol 4 – PRE-ORDER NOW!

It’s finally time, volume 4 of The Cosplay Journal is coming! And it’s bigger than ever! Featuring an exclusive interview with Nicole Rousmaniere the curator of The British Museum’s Citi Manga Exhibition, and a photoshoot in The British Museum itself!

On top of this, this volume looks at how cosplay can positively help your mental health and wellbeing with an interview with Wish Godmother who uses cosplay to combat her PTSD, as well as talking with disabled cosplay activist Ekko Cosplay about how disability is viewed in the geek community. Woodsmoke and Words tells us about gender and cosplay and what it’s like being a non-binary cosplayer with help from an amazing group of trans non-binary costume makers.

There are all the regular features and much more in volume 4!

The Cosplay Journal is a coffee table periodical focusing on the Diversity and Craft of cosplay. We want to show that not only can anyone from any walk of life be involved in cosplay, but also that we are all capable of learning new skills, creating amazing things and bringing joy into our own and other people’s lives through the art form of costume making.

The Cosplay Journal’s mission is to dispel the myths about cosplay and cosplayers, as well as promoting cosplay as way into a new world and maybe even a new career.

There is no one way to be a cosplayer. Many mainstream media outlets choose to show only certain elements of cosplay, creating an idea that cosplayers have to be “traditionally attractive,” which has led many to believe that they can’t cosplay. This is, of course, not the case because the idea of traditional beauty is ridiculous and damaging to society as a whole and it really doesn’t matter, what matters is having fun in your costume. We believe that everyone is beautiful and so we showcase a whole rainbow of truly stunning, talented, diverse people of all shapes, sizes, races and genders.

The Cosplay Journal Vol 4 features 100 pages of stunning photography, interviews and articles and is available to pre-order now from the link below!
