    The show is best when it digs into the cosplay scene and the competitors bare their vanities and insecurities.

    Heroes of Cosplay is a worthy journey into a world few may be familiar with.

    The first hour of Heroes of Cosplay is fairly interesting as a study of an unusual subculture. But just how many unique stories are there to be mined from the characters introduced?

    You may think the whole idea of adults dressing up as fantasy characters is silly, but the dedication and craftsmanship of the cosplayers easily convinces you otherwise. What's unclear is whether competitive cosplaying is too rarefied to sustain multiple episodes. But as a one-off, it's, well, fantastic enough.

I like most all of the cosplayers they have on the show. It's really neat to see how the costumes come together. Full Review »
