Right now on Twitter is one of my favorite parts of Black History Month, which is the #28DaysOfBlackCosplay hashtag. This hashtag is a celebration of black cosplayers and it is both impressive and inspiring. There are a few ways to join in on the fun. You are welcome to post your own pics if you’re a black cosplayer or post pics of other black cosplayers. Just be sure to give credit where you can and always use the #28DaysOfBlackCosplay hashtag. Also, there are general themes to each day (posted below) but they aren’t hard and fast rules.

Here are some examples of what people have posted so far:
