@star_cos22 IN THE FLORIDA COSPLAY DIGITAL MAGAZINE
In anticipation of @Star_cos22’s appearance at Anime St. Pete, Florida Comic Cons, a news media website that covers conventions and cosplayers in The Sunshine State, featured @Star_cos22 in its July issue of the Florida Cosplay Digital Magazine.
@star_cos22's Cosplay Origins
Initially, @Star_cos22 had no desire to cosplay, but after being heavily persuaded by their friend, they finally gave in. Ultimately, cosplaying was some of the most fun they’d ever had. Their first cosplay was Shoto Todoroki from My Hero Academia. @Star_cos22 fell in love with the performance side of cosplay.
TikTok and Cosplay
Silco from Arcane
@Star_cos22 has been cosplaying for less than two years, but has been wildly successful on TikTok. They are known for doing intense makeup and cosplaying more obscure characters.
They love to experiment with makeup and make a character their own. They cosplay and make TikToks becauses they love to see how excited others are for a character that they love as well.
The make up for Silco took over 4 hours to complete.
Mycon Cosplay Contest
Megamind from Megamind
@Star_cos22 has brought out Megamind to a few different conventions because it is such a fan favorite. Back in March 2022, @Star_cos22‘s Megamind won the Teen Division at MYCON.
Later, @Star_cos22 would enter Megamind into a Lip Sync competition at Tampa Bay Comic Con and win.
@Star_cos22's Favorite Cosplay
Ryo Asuka's Satan Form From Devilman Crybaby
Ryo is @Star_cos22‘s favorite because of how well the cosplay captures the beauty of the character and how great his wings turned out.
@Star_cos22 shared with Florida Comic Cons how they made the wings! They used bendable rulers, foam, feathers, and a plastic lid to create the wings.

Upgrades to cosplay
@Star_cos22 loved cosplaying Ryo so much, they decided to revamp the cosplay by changing the base outfit and wig, while still using the wings and inspiration from the original cosplay.
