Wow!! We almost can't believe we did it! Issue number 16, the Marvel Issue of Cosplay Realm has just been published with OVER 280 CREATORS FEATURED! The most we've ever had in a single issue of the magazine! So many absolutely INCREDIBLE cosplayers, photographers, and artists sent their work to be published by us this month and we cannot thank all of you enough! Cosplay Realm would not be where it is without support from people like you!

Marvel is huge for both Em and I. It goes way back with both of us, ever since we saw the first MCU movies. The movies are what first introduced us to the comics and we have both been huge fans ever since! We both have our favorite characters and storylines and we love sharing them with eachother. My favorite characters are the X-Men while Em's favorites are Loki, Bucky, and Spiderman! In fact, Em and I first really became friends after our first photoshoot together, a shoot of my Magik cosplay from X-Men!

June was a month filled to the brim even more than this issue was for us at the CRM team. June was pride month, something very important to both of us being members of the LGBT community. Over the month of June we recorded and published the first episode of Rebel Realm: A Cosplay Realm Podcast. June is the month of Portcon Maine, a local convention to us that we attend every year where we debuted new cosplays and got to meet so many great people.
