Some exciting news! A while back I Was interviewed for a documentary called Cosplayer Nation. Well, now it’s making the rounds and screening at comic cons across the US. I have info in a press release below. If you have a blog and would like to use the information, feel free!
(HOLLYWOOD, CA) Cosplayer and geek blogger Tanya Tate is featured in the documentary film Cosplayer Nation. Lensed between 2010 and 2013, the movie takes a look at not only the popularity rise of cosplay in America, but some of the personalities that devote themselves to the hobby of "costume play." Tanya has established herself as a popular cosplayer having made appearances at a multitude of comic cons, guesting on convention panels and blogged about her love of the hobby since 2010 on JustaLottaTanya.com.
“A great deal of care and respect went into the making of Cosplayer Nation and I am happy to have been a part of it.” said Tanya. “The filmmakers are dedicated to the positive promotion of the hobby and I fully support that notion. This is a movie that will answer the question people have about why someone would dress up as a superhero or anime character. It’s quite a fascinating journey.”
