For almost fifty years, cosplay has had a widespread following and continues to experience growing popularity in North America and Europe, and has more recently spread throughout South America and Australia.
Western cosplay's origins are based primarily on science fiction and historical fantasy. Common themes for Western cosplayers are from live-action series such as Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, The Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter. Western costumers also include subcultures of hobbyists who participate in Renaissance faires or the Society for Creative Anachronism, and historical re-enactments such as Civil War battles as well as many others.
Space City Con supports and hopes any and all Cosplayers who wish to come will do so enthusiastically.

Amaya first began making her own costumes in 2004 when her mother told her that she'd no longer tackle the insane projects Amaya came up with. After that, there was no looking back and costumes were created in everything from moving cars to late night parties at the conventions themselves. Through the years she has done everything from Sci-fi to Fantasy and Comics to Steampunk and all the inbetweens possible. A recent graduate of the University of North Texas with a BFA in Fashion design, her love of costumes has only doubled since then and sparked the creation of a custom wear and alternative fashion design house- Melancholic.
