WHY NOW?
Costuming has a long and colorful history, and the popular phenomenon called “cosplay” – a portmanteau of the words costume and play - is no exception.  With thousands of fans joining this movement every year, cosplay is now mainstream… but the knowledge of the process often isn’t.  Juxtapose will portray the passion, artistry, and skill of cosplayers from all areas of the spectrum: the novice, the journeyman, and the master.

Cosplayers and costumers of all walks are eager to see positive, quality representations of their art form in the media.  Juxtapose peers into all parts of cosplay, from research to fabrication, the influence of social media, community, and mundane life, the preparation and anticipation of the convention, and everything in between.

For the cosplayer, Juxtapose details the differences in process and production at many points of expertise and experience.  Expectations and results change dramatically with the history of individual cosplayers and costumers.  For viewers new to cosplay, Juxtapose is a balanced view into a fascinating world of creation, fandom, and wearable art.

Only film can capture the true experience both behind the scenes and on stage associated with cosplay competition.  Seeing the work that goes into each costume, hearing the voices of the cosplayers as they progress, and finally viewing the completed costume during a competitive presentation creates an intimate and honest view of the cosplay scene and experience.  Join our cosplayers from the very first stitch to the final bow as they experience the challenges and triumphs along the road to competition.
