Welcome to the Better With Cosplay blog!
A bit of background: Based in the Washington, DC area, Jae (of Crazy Jae Cosplay) is a jack-of-all trades and the driving force behind everything you see here. She found me in a random convention hall, and her... unorthodox style and sense of humor meant I happily joined up as her cosplay partner.
This site began from the one big burst of inspiration from Jae. She's been a Cosplayer for years, honing her craft and attending cons across the United States... but lately she's been looking for a way to combine cosplay with some of her other passions, namely photography and cooking. It's how the name stuck!
But I digress - Along with the other sections of this site, I'll be contributing blog posts periodically. As a Cosplayer, amateur costumer, and walking bag of snark, I'm planning to write on topics I've come across in the cosplay community, but we'll see where it goes. Jae will of course be posting her own stream-of-consciousness on life, photography, cooking, and being a badass. If there's any topics you'd like to see covered, please leave us a comment, or shoot us an email!
And remember: everything is Better With Cosplay.
