23 - Geek - Cosplay 101 with Amanda Conley (or how I learned to stop worrying and embrace the dollar stores)

Friend of the show, panellist, writer, and cosplayer Amanda Conley joins Robin to talk about starting out in cosplay. How accurate doed it need to be? Can I dress as a lady? Where do you find the potentially strange clothes needed? What about makeup and movement and getting to the convention? They cover the important topics of consent, and dressing as a character of another ethnicity, all in the name of having the best time while in costume.
