Cosplay Spotlight

We’re spotlighting talent in the cosplay community! 
Every month, The Variant showcases cosplayers who display talent, creativity, and a positive voice within the cosplay community.

I’m Kibit, you can call me Kit!

I’ve been cosplaying since 2012, so that makes this year my 10th year in cosplay.
I started my cosplay journey hand stitching fabric on the floor of my room. I had no idea what I was doing (still don’t sometimes), but I was excited about it!

I remember attending my first con, Animazement 2011, and being in awe of all the cosplayers. I looked at their work and thought, “they made something amazing from nothing, HOW?? I don’t think I could ever do that”.

10 years later I can say that I am indeed, doing that. Cosplay has been an exceptionally motivating and fulfilling experience for me. I started off very shy. I lacked confidence. I lacked community. Cosplay has allowed me to grow into myself. 
To build the confidence and community I needed around me.

Everyone has a different experience and journey with cosplay. There are so many great resources out there for it now. From pre-made cosplay you can buy, to wonderful tutorials made by talented community members. Whatever your approach, your age or skill level, if you’re interested give it a try!

This month KitBit along with Jon V Photography brought us two INCREDIBLE Genshin Impact cosplays, Ganyu & Mona!!


They even went and did an all-new Cammy from Street Fighter shoot and we still have some some surprises set for the month so 

WAIT!!…why are you still reading this??
