Fanart & Cosplay – Social Commentary : Making Our Own Diversity – Cosplay and fanart share many intersections. Both are pursuits with active fan communities who value hard work, technical skills, and originality. They also make great vehicles for social commentary and allow fans to fill a diversity gap in media! Sunday 5/31 at 3:30pm. Room: Panels 404 (A-404, GWCC 4).
