SyFy LogoHEROES 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:

Yaya Han – Yaya is one of the acknowl­edged leg­ends of cos­play whose entrance at each con­ven­tion – always in full cos­tume – nev­er fails to cre­ate a stir. A source of inspi­ra­tion and intim­i­da­tion to the con­tes­tants, Atlanta-based Yaya Han is often a judge at con­tests.

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.

Moni­ka Lee – Moni­ka is from Atlanta and a stu­dent at the Geor­gia Insti­tute of tech­nol­o­gy, where she’s major­ing in indus­tri­al design. A cos­play­er since the age of 13, com­pet­ed in numer­ous crafts­man­ship con­tests win­ning sev­er­al “Best in Shows” and var­i­ous oth­er awards.

Chloe Dyk­stra – Chloe was almost fat­ed to be in the cos­play com­mu­ni­ty; her father is an F/X leg­end, hav­ing worked on the orig­i­nal Star Wars and Star Trek films. An actress and mod­el, she hosts the Just Cos show on YouTube’s Nerdist chan­nel.

Jesse is a stick­ler for real­ism and authen­tic­i­ty in all of the cos­tumes he cre­ates.
