#28DaysofBlackCosplay Celebration Returns for Black History Month 2022!

The celebration returns for its seventh year of highlighting Black cosplayers across all fandoms.

Today marks the start of 28 Days of Black Cosplay‘s seventh year highlighting Black cosplayers! Creators all over the world are taking to social media to post, share and celebrate their works as well as the works of others each day this month.

While the celebration branches across all fandoms, it’s grown to be a tentpole event in the anime cosplay community! We’ll be sharing and highlighting cosplayers again this year on the Funimation TikTok account, helping our followers find more new creators to love. Last year’s celebration featured some INCREDIBLE work, and we’re excited to see what cosplayers share this February.

New to the 28 Days event? No worries! You can check out our interview with the hashtag’s creator, Chaka Cumberbatch here to learn how it all got started. 

Not sure how to get involved? Chaka says, “Use the hashtag! Create sounds! Challenge each other! Set Patreon tier awards themed around the month!” You can also check out this spotlight of some of last year’s participants for some inspiration.
