Cos and Effect: Say Hello to Just Cos
We sit down with hosts Chloe Dykstra, Seth Herzog and Linda Le
Make sure to take a deep breath this Sunday - you're going to need the excess oxygen because you'll be screaming with excitement when Just Cos premieres on the Nerdist Channel on YouTube. This one-stop shop for all things cosplay is just what the doctor ordered to turn your Sunday from lazy to crazy (awesome). On the first episode, join your host Chloe Dykstra (who you may remember as GLaDOS from last year's Comic-Con), the lovely Linda Le (a.k.a. Vampy Bit Me) and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon's Seth Herzog as they dive headfirst into the world of cosplay at New York Comic Con. We sat down with Linda, Chloe and Seth to get a sneak peek at what's in store for us come Sunday:
TOKYOPOP: What can fans expect from the show?
Linda Le: What fans can expect from the show is a deeper insight on cosplay in the lives of those who live it. Cosplay isn’t just dressing up; it’s connecting with passions, creating art, becoming a character and paying tribute to fandom of all genres.
Chloe Dykstra: What's really cool about Just Cos is that it's not just saying, "Hey, look at these nerds who make cool things," it's made for cosplayers and people who want to get into cosplaying, so it's much more in-depth.
Seth Herzog: Oh man, the show is great. It's several episodes we shot over the course of three days at New York Comic Con and we really get into the lifestyle of cosplayers and who they are behind the mask. Also, Linda gets into a very action-packed fight, and we see me searching for the perfect costume.
TP: If you had unlimited time and money, what would your dream costume be?
SH: This may be a little "101," but I'd try to re-create the original Adam West Batman costume. It's so silly and slinky. I'm a classicist.
LL: I would have to be quite honest, and I think my fans know this, as well as my close friends, my dream cosplay would be a fully armored, custom-designed mecha cosplay with fully-working parts.
CD: I have to say, I have such a thing for Miranda from Mass Effect, but I'd probably just stare at my ass all day.
