S1 E33: Kayla Maria Gisela at DragonCon 2018
This year, I took some time to do interviews at DragonCon because where else are you going to find thousands of cosplayers in one place. And I mean thousands.
If you weren’t aware, the cosplay community is as inclusive as mainstream society, which means it says it is, but really isn’t. Especially in the media. My producer and I realized that this was an opportunity to share the work and experiences of other fuller-figured cosplayers.
We start with Kayla Maria. If you haven’t been following Kayla on Twitter, you have been missing out. She is a writer, creator, and social media maverick! In addition to being the creator of the hashtag #WhatBlackPantherMeansToMe and since then has been included in many projects that focus on inclusiveness in science, tech, and mainstream media.
But don’t let me tell you, let her. And then start following her journey online and hire her if you are looking for social media influencers, curators, and marketing specialists. Her links are below.
