Popverse's top stories of the day


Cosplay has become synonymous with comic conventions, and from the moment you step through the doors of a show, you can feel the energy of the cosplay community. Whether you are a beginner, or a seasoned veteran in the space, cosplayers (and fans), love seeing all of the creativity and craftsmanship that goes into each and every piece. While some cosplayers perform and compete for fun, others turn their passion into a career, as is the case with Sameer Bundela, also known as Sameer Tikka Masala online.

"The thing is you have to be ready when the opportunity strikes," explains Bundela to Popverse's Veronica Valencia. "Don't think that if it is cosplay it's easy."
