Cosplay has grown to become an enormous part of Twitch streams in recent years. The platform allows passionate creators to show off their style on a daily basis and not just at video game centered conventions like previously before.
For most people, the fascinating hobby involves dressing up and behaving as one of their favorite in-game characters, bringing fantasy worlds to life!
While some cosplayers may choose solely to flaunt their looks, others have been prepared to go one-step further by picking up a needle and thread to create their own ideal costumes! You might even get to witness their live-creations at the annual Twitch-con cosplay contest!
Today, we will look at some of the most active cosplay streamers, who can regularly be found in character!
