Shenanigans Cosplayers Say

Shenanigans Cosplayers Say

Join Elle and Ashlyn of La Vie Cosplay on this comedy podcast in the chaos of fandom, crafting, mental health, competing and the overall adventure that is cosplay con-going life. You won't believe what some people say; or what people think they can attach to their bodies with hot glue. Rated PG-13.
