Episode #8 Overview

On the eighth episode of C3, Marcus and Olivia are joined by Jillea, a visionary Cosplay artist and costume designer, to discuss the culture and consumption of the Cosplay community. Throughout the episode, they will delve into what it means to be a cosplayer, the creative and innovative culture of Cosplay itself, and how Cosplay can be a central aspect of one’s individual identity, yet constitute a larger sense of belonging and culture. Be sure to tune in to hear Jillea’s take to learn more about the role of a cosplayer, and how craft, community, and culture are intertwined in the world of Cosplay.



C3: Culture, Consumption, Communities Overview

C3 is a web-series that explores the relationship between culture and consumption and how it manifests within a community of like-minded people. The literature refers to these groups as cultures of consumption—sneakerheads, hackers, runners, cosplayers, DIYers, etc. Every episode, we will investigate a different culture of consumption with a guide/guest who self-identifies as a member of the community. Together, we will dive into the cultural characteristics that govern the collective and informs their shared consumption activity.
