Exploring Your Identity through Cosplay

Cosplay is a hobby driven by fan devotion to fictional characters, but how can cosplay be used as a tool to open conversations about the intersectional identities that fans have and can relate to in real life? Join us in a discussion about experiences with cosplay and identity, the ways that con spaces contextualize the experience of fandom costume communities, and the personal headspace of the cosplayer as it relates to their own lived experiences.
