Geek Speak Ep. 2 from School of Media and Design on Vimeo.

Cosplay is a word being thrown around a lot these days through social networks. A combination of “costume” and “play,” cosplay functions as a lively, interactive subculture of geek culture that has been expanding every year. Geek Speak hosts will introduce you to a leading expert in the field of cosplay where you get a chance to learn about what cosplay is, where it happens, and why with Thomas Reading. Then, Hilary Staulbaum will find out about some basic steps to getting your own cosplay started for any upcoming events and conventions with a local cosplayer.
