Do you cosplay? The craft industry sees you and hears you and is working to take care of you. Cosplay was a big topic of product creation at the Creativation 2020 trade show this year. Creativation is a trade show for the manufacturers and buyers of craft products in the crafting industry. One such company was Plaid Paints.
For those of you who don’t know what Cosplay is or might be a little confused, the meaning is costume play, performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character. Most often their costumes are hand created not store-bought. The more detail and reality built into their costume earns them bragging rights amongst their fellow players.
I did a booth walkthrough tour this morning at a breakfast that was hosted by Plaid. Cosplay was a hot topic for them. They have formulated a special paint for you that works on foam and doesn’t crack or peel over time and is flexible.
Their new paint line is called FX and will be in stores soon. Don’t quote me on this but I think there might be something like 80 different colors. (breakfast was really early this morning!) They said you will be able to find it in all big box stores like Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, and of course online at Amazon. I think they have you covered as far as being able to purchase.
