S1 E34: Akua (A Stylish Jedi) at DragonCon 2018
There are so many phenomenal cosplayers out there and I am constantly in awe of the creativity and drive displayed by the participants in this fandom. One such person is Akua, who was wearing her New York version of Junkrat from the Borderlands video game. I love the cosplay and I love the creativity Akua brought to it. This is one of my favorite parts of cosplay – the individuality people bring.
But Akua isn’t just a cosplayer. She’s a gamer, a traveler, a brunch organizer, and a stylish jedi. I had the opportunity to meet Akua at DragonCon and talk about her approach to cosplay and the different ways she brings who she wants to see in the mirror. We also talk about how DragonCon panels exist but damn if we ever make it to them. Take a listen and check out links to her stuff below.
