Cosplay Interview With Debra Phillips (Superdebz)
“It’s really good when you make something yourself and then you get recognised for it as well,” said Debra Phillips (Superdebz Cosplay) on the reactions she receives after finishing a costume she’s been working on. “It justifies it and makes me happy that [I’m not] wasting all my money for nothing.

On YouTube, you can find people who upload many videos related to cosplaying.
