Cosplay Culture Magazine is the world’s premiere cosplay magazine, dedicated to bringing engaging content to cosplayers of all skill levels and fans of all ages. Founded in January 2015, Cosplay Culture Magazine is focused on increasing inclusivity and diversity and providing the cosplay community with the resources and inspiration they need to make their next (or first) big project. A small team with big dreams, we work with dozens of contributors and hundreds of cosplayers worldwide to bring you the best and most exciting content the cosplay community has to offer.

Each issue of Cosplay Culture is jam-packed with tons of features: The latest movie buzz, news from the comics and gaming worlds, DIY projects and tutorials, interviews with creators, and of course lots and lots of cosplay. In addition to spotlighting cosplayers from first-timers to World Champions, we regularly showcase the photographers and artists who capture these amazing creations. Our Photographer Profile feature presents some of the most talented and innovative artists in the business, and every issue we share some of our favorites of the hundreds of reader submissions we receive each month. Responding to our readers’ requests for more con coverage, we now cover over fifty cons of all sizes across the globe each year, including Australia, Ireland, Canada, and South America, as well as the US.

We know that creating a cosplay can be as challenging as it is rewarding, and we’re committed to bringing you the best tutorials to guide you through everything from basic make-up techniques to the intricate design and faux finishes of a full suit of armor. Every issue contains multiple DIY tutorials from award-winning cosplayers in the community with step-by-step instructions and photos on topics ranging from wig styling and make-up to working with thermoplastics and sewing with specialty fabrics. We frequently include free patterns for all types of crafts, including papercrafting and craft foam, and it’s not uncommon to find an issue that contains a full-size sewing pattern as well! Whether you’ve never picked up a hot glue gun before or you’re practically one with your sewing machine, or whether it’s a six-month build or a last-minute creation, CCM helps you get it together and achieve your cosplay goals!

Cosplay Culture Magazine wouldn’t exist without all the amazingly diverse talent that makes up the cosplay community we are all part of. We are driven by a desire to provide a voice for the entire community, and love hearing from our readers. Submissions are always open and feedback is welcome, either through the web or in person at one of the many shows our intrepid con team attends. Send us comments, questions, requests of what you’d like to see, or something to share. You can submit cosplay and convention photos, or ideas for DIY tutorials, projects, or articles. We want to hear from you!
