Sh*t Cosplayers Say
Ep63: Keeping Up With The Joneses
Show Notes

You don’t have to be the McGinis, you can just be yourself. Join LVC for a deep dive into peer pressure, status anxiety, consumerism, and more. We’ll also revisit our friend the project management triangle. Let’s examine if you really need that new 3D printing machine, the “it” costume every week, or that fancy new fangled cosplay gadget that was just advertised by your favorite cosplayer in order to have “success” in this hobby. To participate in cosplay do you really need to keep up with these mystery expectations?
