Syfy's new reality show Heroes of Cosplay debuts on August 13, and here's the first extended trailer. WHY SHOULD YOU CARE? Because a) you love obsessive people, because you're obsessive people, b) the amount of care and expertise that go into these costumes is amazing, c) you are a geek, and you love it, admit it, and d) THERE'S SOMEBODY FROM PORTLAND IN THIS THING (shock)! From the cast list in the Syfy press release:
Jesse Lagers – Jesse lives in Portland, Oregon, where he works as a software systems administrator. He hopes that success in cosplay competitions will lead to his own business creating costumes and props. Jesse is a stickler for realism and authenticity in all of the costumes he creates.
Good luck, Jesse! And here's the trailer.
