Just two questions about some coplayers that post their work here:
They post info about photographer, cosplayer, location, camera and all sorts of stuff but they don't post ANYTHING about their costume (most of them do that). I have a fetish for cosplay/cosplay costumes (esspecially the latex&spandex ones) even tho I never cosplayed and never had the money or the know-how to craft my own cosplay costume (I really love the female ones). Also my country have zero culture when comes to cosplay. So you will not find any online/offline shops selling any cosplay costumes!
They also sell prints with their cosplay instead of organizing a workshop and selling costumes. I'm sure they would make much more money off costume selling rather than prints selling.
Another question would be, since this is bugging me for a while (by a while, I mean years) is this:
Is cosplay, for some people, an actual job?!? I've seen many online cosplayers that don't seem to have a day-to-day job like any people on this planet. And all they do is Conventions, selling prints and Patreon (begging).
I don't say names, I don't want to judge anybody, I am just asking some questions here.
Hope someone will answer!
Take care and have a nice week!
