10:00 AM - I Was a Cosplay Mean Girl

Being in a niche community like Tales Of means that fans are passionate and it’s easy to get swept up in the world of cosplay “drama” unintentionally. But when does it cross the line from “drama” to toxic behavior? How do you spot the red flags or heal after you’ve missed them? How can we change our community to be safer and more encouraging? Trickssi shares her journey from being a bully to becoming an advocate against bullying, harassment, and more through the Cosplayer Survivor Support Network (CSSN).

4:30 PM - BEYOND Cosplay is Not Consent

Our convention community has a real problem with harassment, but “Cosplay Is Not Consent” has not been fixing that OR the stalking, abuse, and assault that can occur. The Cosplayer Survivor Support Network (CSSN) would like to show you what’s really going on as a result of that phrase and offer solutions for today’s conventions and online experiences. #WeBelieveYou and your voice matters for safer, more enjoyable conventions for everyone, not just cosplayers!
