Watch this, not that.

So there's all of this to-do about Heroes of Cosplay. The vast majority of my friends don't like it. I have thoughts, but to be honest there are a lot of them (what's new? heh) and they belong in an entry all their own.

Instead, what I want to do today is share with you what you should watch - instead of Heroes of Cosplay, that is.

View Cosplay: Crafting a Secret Identity by clicking on this link OR on the picture above :)

Cosplay: Crafting a Secret Identity is an approximately hour-long documentary about a group of people who have taken cosplay to the next level - and are essentially making a living off of it. Some of them film webisodes, some are what I suppose should be called cosplay diplomats, and others simply make costumes and props for those who don't have the time and/or knowledge to do it themselves. Cosplay: Crafting a Secret Identity also has some footage from last year's Dragon Con (I caught glimpses of a few people I know!) and delves a bit into how Atlanta has become the sort of epicenter of the cosplay phenomenon.

So instead of wasting an hour of your time on Heroes of Cosplay (which may feature some talented cosplayers who are wonderful people, but was of course filmed and edited by a cable network that clearly knows nothing about the love of the hobby), check out this documentary - which is clearly a labor of love.
