Cosplay Central is a Brand New ReedPop Site for Costume Enthusiasts

Costume play is love, costume play is life.

Attention, cosplayers. Today, USgamer's parent company, ReedPOP, launched Cosplay Central. Cosplay Central is a website dedicated to all things related to (you guessed it) cosplay. You'll find tons of interviews, showcases, how-to's, profiles, and tons more.

Sadly, the 2020 spring and summer cosplay season has been badly dinged by the COVID-19 pandemic. Some conventions suffered delays, and some are cancelled outright. Despite this setback, Cosplay Central isn't hurting for content. You can read about how cosplayers are helping to make masks for medical workers on the frontlines, or discover how a cosplay company is helping to make hundreds of 3D-printed respirators. If you'd rather not read about anything related to current events, go ahead and learn about what a cosplayer should keep in their portable toolbag, or how TikTok is empowering PoC cosplayers.

Most importantly, Cosplay Central's content is tailored for beginners as much as it is for professionals. If you're new to cosplay or just cosplay-curious, don't be afraid to look around. You'll pick up valuable tips about how to choose the right foam for your project, and 10 items every cosplayer should keep on-hand.

Here's some free additional advice: Keep aloe vera on hand because you will burn yourself with the nozzle of your glue gun. On that note, treat every scar like a war wound. Besides my glue gun burn (acquired when I was trying to assemble a Princess Mononoke cosplay), I have a scar on my finger from where my scissors slipped (acquired when I was trying to assemble a cosplay of Fox/Yusuke from Persona 5.) I'm marked, and I'm proud.

Whether you're an amateur or a professional, Cosplay Central has everything you need to make your best outfit. Enjoy.
