ABOUT PRODUCTION

 This production will primarily be a collaborative effort between the entertainment industry and the cosplay community; however, this does not exclude various artists that will be joining this production such as stage performers, musicians, comic book artists and other creative talents.   The objective is to bring exposure and provide exciting opportunities to the cosplayers and all who are involved with the production of Lost Cos.   This will be a unique experience with so much more in-store for cosplayers especially.  We are in tight communication with the cosplay community to make sure our content is relatable and entertaining.  We will also offer a volunteer program as well for cosplay talents.  Incentives volunteers will be announced on the Lost Cos website ( www.lostcos.com ) and on social media.
