Episode 81 | Cosplayers can do anything

This week’s episode was recorded on August 21st, 2016.

Tia and Kate join Mike for a discussion all about superhero fashion and costumes. It’s a long winding path that leads to some discussion about the male-gaze, cosplayers, and Mike being a completely lazy comic nerd by the end of the episode. Enjoy!

    I’m new to comics and your podcast, but this discussion about the costuming was really intriguing. Thank you for bringing it up. Even when my 10 year old recognizes how ridiculous the female heroes’ costumes are! Really enjoyed this podcast!

      Hey! Thanks for the comment. Good to know more people (even 10-year-olds!) are seeing the problems in these types of costumes and are calling them out.

      Glad you enjoyed the episode!
