In honor of Black History Month, cosplayers worldwide participate in #28daysofblackcosplays on their social media platforms. We thought we would take it a step further and create a gallery of 50 black cosplayers who are inspirational, brilliant, and talented creators. These cosplayers were recommended by our followers through one of our Instagram posts and we cannot thank everyone enough for sharing their favorite creators.

There is a lack of representation for black cosplayers on photographer and share pages alike unless it is during the month of February.

“From our perspective, at times, it feels like we’re not on those pages because of our skin, to be honest,” LeRoyal told Cosplay Central in an interview. “Of course, there are pages dedicated to sharing POC cosplayers, however, is it right that we have to only hope for appreciation from those pages. It’s a huge turn-off when a potential share page or photographer page only mostly shows ethnically ambiguous cosplayers.”

Here at Cosplay Central, we are working to provide a place for our community to share their cosplays, tips, and tutorials no matter an individual’s race, ethnicity, gender, or religion. We also produce a platform for people to share their stories and experiences through cosplays. Without further adieu, here are 50 black cosplayers in honor of Black History Month.
