Building a Ramp to Cosplay

Hope & Feathers Cosplay

Have you ever looked at a character and thought “I wish I could cosplay that but….?” For disabled cosplayers this happens with every character they consider, until they make adaptations that is! Just like a ramp can help a wheelchair user get into a building, there are tools that can make cosplay accessible to everyone! Whether you are a disabled cosplayer yourself, a disabled potential cosplayer, a family member or friend of a disabled cosplayer or disabled person who might want to cosplay, or just an interested community member who wants to learn how to make this community more inclusive, come join us for a fun discussion that will hopefully change your mind about what is and isn’t possible.
