Watch Heroes of Cosplay

Heroes of Cosplay is a original television production, partly produced by 51 Minds Entertainment, which documents the hobby of cosplay, or "costume play," across the span of six episodes. The show focuses on a group of "professional cosplayers" as they deal with the struggle to not only come up with a creative costume idea, acquiring all the necessary materials for it, and insuring that it could earn them one of the various prizes awarded to participants at a given convention.

Some of the notable cosplayers involved with the show include Chloe Dykstra, Jessie Nigiri, Monika Lee, Atlanta-based "Riddle," Holly Conrad and Jessica Merizan of Crabcat Industries, and the self-proclaimed "Ambassador of Cosplay" Yaya Han. Some of the conventions featured as competition grounds include Planet Comic Con, in the American Midwest, and Otakon.
