At MCM London, cosplayers Shinorisu and Rose Magpie talked fans through passion to profession... and we filmed it!

Popverse's top stories of the day


Plenty of people cosplay as a hobby, but it takes a lot more work (and a few insider tips) to turn it into a profession. Fortunately for anybody who wants to do just that, cosplayers Shinorisu and Rose Magpie shared their insights with the crowd at MCM May 2024, and Popverse was there to film the whole thing. Watch the Passion to Profession panel right here, free of charge.

Of course, this is but one of dozens of panels Popverse filmed at MCM May 2024 - and best of all, you're going to be able to watch all of them for free. Throughout the summer, Popverse will be debuting full panel videos on demand to watch - whether it be to see something you missed, or to re-live your favorite moments.

Come back on Saturday, July 20 at 3PM BST (10am EDT) to watch the full Passion to Profession panel with Shinorisu and Rose Magpie free, thanks to MCM and Popverse.
