MoPOP's new virtual student clubs offer an opportunity for students to connect while remaining safely apart! Ages 11-18 are invited to engage with fellow students who share interests, solve creative challenges together, and explore MoPOP's content wherever they are.
Be sure to check out the details for our next student club offering: a virtual Cosplay Club launching in February 2021!
If you're passionate about costumes, crafting, fandoms, or learning new skills, MoPOP’s upcoming cosplay club is the opportunity for you!
Join us biweekly beginning February 10 for six weeks of collaborative creativity as we explore the art of cosplay. Each meeting will focus on a different element of cosplay: costume building, makeup, wig styling, and more. At the end of the club, participants will have a fully formed cosplay costume and themed PPE facemask as club members learn from professional cosplayers leading demos and answering questions on the elements of cosplay.
Today, we get to know one of the professional cosplayers students will learn from in MoPOP's club: Anna He, who will teach a costuming workshop on February 24.
Anna has an extensive professional background in the fashion industry as a designer. She has a wide array of experience working with the full spectrum of design with different materials, creating high-quality and award-winning costumes. Most recently, she has focused on reaching out to more DIY cosplayers by releasing YouTube tutorials on various advanced sewing techniques and machine embroidery. You can find her in cosplay groups, judging contests, helping young sewists become more skilled, and providing a career example to those interested in the fashion industry. Daily, Anna aspires to be a better sewist, an effective teacher, and a creative cosplayer.
Whether you’re an avid cosplayer or you’re just dipping your toe into the world, we invite you to explore MoPOP's Cosplay Virtual Student Club.
