Now that season one is fully finished, I am left feeling two things: inspired to get my costumes ready and amazing for Dragon*Con, and wondering where this show came from!
Technically that was the end of the second half of the first season, but I can’t find anything on SyFy’s website to indicate that there was a first half. Not that I mind. If anyone remembers the first half of the season, not many cosplayers liked it, myself included. In my opinion, they amped up the drama and downplayed the costumes.
This time, the complete opposite. Yes there was drama, but it was the typical drama associated with creating costumes and competing at that level. This last episode really sealed it for me. The way they focused on everyone scrambling to get their costumes and props ready, and figuring out what to do on stage. Then, at the end, the way everyone was just so positive and upbeat about their experiences and how others have grown. It gave a much more positive, happy vibe to the whole costuming/cosplay experience. Just the way it should be.
