About Cos Couture
Cos Couture was built to help fill a void in the cosplay community. This is a safe place for all cosplay artists to be featured and have their work credited. On this site the playing field has been leveled and cosplayers, photographers, makeup artists, prop makers, and costume designers will all have their equal place in the sun. We honestly don’t care if you’ve never cosplayed before or if you have 10,000 fans on your Facebook page. Good is good, and it deserves to be featured. We do our best, but if you see something we missed, recognize someone, or would like your links changed, we would be honored to help and flattered that you were here to read!
Cos Couture never insults or exploits our readers and featured artists by resorting to other site’s tactics to increase traffic. You won’t see the word “sexy” here, or fail, ugly, and hot. Not ever. To us the human form is always beautiful and we want the work you do speak for itself. You don’t need us to heavily keyword your extraordinary efforts!
This concept is paying off with you wonderful readers! We are simply blown away and humbled by the sheer volume of you. We are so grateful for every share on our Facebook page and message Gillian receives. She hears you! This site is our gift to you all. You deserve a gallery, and we are happy to be a part of your cosplay journey!
