Cosplay Positivity – Ginger Oh Snap
Cosplay positivity, or “cospositivity,” is a movement of cosplayers who have decided to fight back against the myth that only perfect physical representations and recreations of characters are welcome in the cosplay world. In this open discussion, we’ll talk about the body positivity movement, inclusion, representation, plus the many facets of bullying in the community and issues surrounding this behavior. Most of all, we’ll talk about how we all can make cosplay and fandom better for every fan – because cosplay is for everyone. Stream
