Me on Q on Cosplay
I am the “resident otaku” on CBC Radio One’s daily culture show Q with Jian Ghomeshi. A couple of days ago, I was on to talk about cosplay and the Anime North convention. The folks at CBC podcasting were nice enough to turn my bit into something downloadable that anyone can listen to, any time.
One note, however. At the end of the piece I talk about the dedication and long hours Japanese cosplayers put into their costumes. This was me summing up what many cosplayers at Anime North said and in no way is meant to belittle the hard work of North American cosplayers. I just didn’t have time to say that.
Special thanks to Mike at Anime London for the pic!
