We got to host our panel, “Cosplaying With Your Kids” again at WonderCon 2018. We were so happy to be able to host the event again.
Anastasia Washington was our Moderator again. We were joined by Deborah and Celia of Ravenpuff Cosplay and Jake from Little Negan Cosplay.
We covered some of the same topics of discussion as last time, such as cosplay ideas, sources for smaller children, cosplay mash-ups, cosplaying as a duo or in a group, but we also took on some more topics this time. Scout and Celia are 12 and 13, respectively, so they had some great insights into dealing with social media and bullying. I think everyone was impressed with their mature take on the subject. Basically, look for and find your tribe for support and protection from bullying. As they get more and more involved with social media, Deborah and I had some parental tips and advice for the other parents in attendance. The basics were to have an open-door policy on social media. Know your kids’ passwords for safety and not for snooping. If you give them freedom to explore the world, they will come to you for advice and guidance navigating those waters.

We had a fantastic time and hope to host another panel again at SDCC! Stay tuned… Meantime, if you have any items you’d like us to talk about at our next panel, please hit us up in the comments!
Love, Kim and Scout
