CosTalk LIVE (aka CTL) is a Cosplay Talk Show that streams LIVE weekly (12 PM MST).
We are a group of cosplay friends who LOVE sharing our experiences with others. Each week we feature a new cosplay theme or topic; we also invite industry guests to share their knowledge with our fans. Meet our members below!
CTL Primary Hosts
I'm Jinx, a cosplayer since 2001! I've been taking on bigger challenges and more opportunities to grow in my cosplay. In addition, I take great pride in sharing my process and helping others in their cosplay journeys.
My name is Sam! I founded ThermoCosplay after seeing cosplay for the first time while selling my own comics at Phoenix Comicon 2013. By 2014 I made my first cosplay; within a couple years I was winning awards and even accepting sponsorships! I LOVE sharing my knowledge of costuming with others!
I'm Chibi Raincloud and have been cosplaying since 2009. I've done a little bit of everything from panels to skits, but my favorite place in the world of cosplay is in the workshop trying out new building techniques!
When I'm not in cosplay you can catch me making adventures for DnD5e.
CTL Rotating Hosts & Con Support Team
I’m a teacher and life-long learner who specializes in cosplay, needlework, props, and accessories! I am currently learning digital art, fashion illustration, and foam armor construction.
Amber Brite Props
I started cosplaying in 2013 as a fun weekend hobby but my life changed later that year at Phoenix Comicon when I witnessed Star Wars Cosplay on stage. Now I make Star Wars Inspired Props for cosplayers around the world, helping hundreds of them become their dream characters!
Head In The Clouds
A Disney enthusiast, this cosplayer pushes the bounds of gender norms with his unique takes on Disney Heroes and Villains. He is an integral part of CTL's Con Support Team and an all around wonderful human being.
The other half of ThermoCosplay, ThermoSidekick is Sam's sister in all but blood! These two have participated in geeky shenanigans for over two decades together. ThermoSidekick is one of CTL's sponsors and an ENORMOUS back-end supporter. You can often find her at cons handing out CTL stickers!
