November Cosplay Spotlight

Mythical Creatures...

November Spotlight 
Meet the cosplayers!

We're spotlighting talent in the cosplay community! 

Every month, The Variant showcases different cosplayers who display talent, creativity, and a positive voice for the cosplay community!

Last April The FanDames Initiative took over The Variant for an entire week. They had their members provide stories and photos and it was AMAZING!

This month the FanDames took over the November Cosplay Spotlight. They planned the entire shoot down to the last detail and I gotta say it is one of the BEST! So without further ado here's Chiki to give you the rundown on The FanDames!


The FanDames is a not-for-profit organization that strives to empower women in the geek and nerd communities. We do this by doing guest appearances at conventions, running our Cosplay Repair Station, serving as panelists at events, and generally spreading positivity wherever we go. While the FanDames Inititative is not a cosplay group we have a long tradition of participating in creative group costumes together. This spotlight echoes back to the group’s roots when we were the “Carolina D20 Girls” and did a Myths and Legends Photoshoot.


I am now proud to present our Mythical Creatures Cosplay Spotlight, 100% created and photographed by the FanDames themselves.
