We’re used to perceiving cosplay as just a hobby, but you could make good money off of it. Mariya Karpenko (Fenix ​​Fatalist) is a cosplayer, creator of the FD Studio costume lab and an entrepreneur. She will make a presentation at the open lecture hall of WEGAME 4.0 and talk about turning cosplay into a successful business.
