The people behind the masks talk about transformation inside & out
At ScareLA we embrace self-expression through costumes, makeup, and play. For cosplayers, though, this isn't just about Halloween, it's a lifestyle! So this year we've turned to them for inspiration to help you make your inner monster shine.
Check out all the cosplayer fun we have in store for this August 8 & 9:
Cosplay Roundup - Saturday, August 8
ScareLA takes a look at four unique cosplay events and communities that transport cosplayers in the very worlds their characters were made to live in. Anime, Fantasy, Apocalypse, and Gore: The Cosplay Roundup panel participants:
