HEROES OF COSPLAY ist eine neue Doku­men­ta­ti­ons­se­rie, die im nächs­ten Monat auf dem Sen­der SyFy star­ten wird, aller­dings erst ein­mal nur auf der US-Ver­si­on. Ob oder wann die­se Serie auch bei uns zu sehen sein wird, steht in den Sternen.

Die Doku­men­ta­ti­on folgt eini­gen bekann­ten Namen aus der Cos­play-Sze­ne und möch­te erläu­tern wer sie sind, was sie da eigent­lich genau machen – und war­um. Sechs Epi­so­den sind geplant, die US-Pre­miè­re ist am 13. August. Zur neu­en Show exis­tiert auch eine Face­book-Sei­te.

Wer im Detail vor­ge­stellt wird (lei­der nur US-Ame­ri­ka­ner), fin­det sich in der offi­zi­el­len Presseerklärung:

Riki LeCotey – Riki moved from rural Cana­da to the United Sta­tes to fol­low her pas­si­on for cos­play. A spe­cial effects tech­ni­ci­an on sci-fi films, she is also the foun­der of Cos­play for a Cau­se, which has rai­sed money for vic­tims of the Japa­ne­se Tsunami.

Jes­si­ca Merizan and Hol­ly Con­rad – Jes­si­ca has per­for­med in regio­nal thea­ter in Sou­thern Cali­for­nia sin­ce she was five years old.
