My Other Me: A Film About Cosplayers – Interview with Director Josh Laner

As gamers many of us know what it’s like to maybe grow up feeling like a bit of an outsider. My Other Me takes a compelling look into the world of cosplay and its many outsiders who are just trying to get by like we did. Director Josh Laner sits with us at COG to talk a little bit about his experience making this fantastic documentary.

"As long as we’ve had Dungeons & Dragons and comic books we’ve had outsider kids that loved them. Often picked on and shunned for their hobby these kids were often seen sitting alone at the school cafeteria probably nose deep in a graphic novel. Sure the stigma of comic books and video games has faded but those outsider kids haven’t gone away. Many of them have found a new outlet to express themselves and feel safe in what is called cosplay. For those of you thinking ‘What the hell is that?’ let me explain. From games, to comics, to cartoons, to anime there is a wealth of crazy and over the top characters just begging to be turned into costumes." (Culture, Tag Invalid)
