I have never watched Heroes of Cosplay, nor have I met Yaya myself, but I’ve certainly seen her name and her photos everywhere. Whether you’re a fan of hers or not, this interview really hit home for me a lot of what makes cosplay such an engaging hobby for so many (and why everyone who wants to try should jump right in).
Cosplay Boom is a potential documentary series looking to positively portray our community and its any facets. You can read more about it and pledge to their kickstarter if you want to help make this show happen.
I really enjoyed the interview they did and would totally love to see more stuff like it! -Dan
This is really great. This is the Yaya Han I’ve seen and met in the past, the sweet nerd that just wants to have fun and encourages others to cosplay for THEIR reasons, not hers. I wish people wouldn’t hat on her just because she’s gotten famous for what she does and the fact that she does wear some costumes that are revealing. So what, she can cosplay whatever she wants, just like everyone else who cosplays.
Anyway, watch the video and see Yaya in a different light than what random people on the internet portray her as.
