From Stage to Screen – Capturing the Cosplay Contest Experience
As organizers begin to explore the realm of virtual events, they’ve also been challenged to find a way to virtually preserve the cosplay masquerade contest experience. Charlene Ingram from Crunchyroll Hime’s Cosplay Cup, Stephanie Guzzardo, Influencer Marketing Manager at Twitch, and cosplayer and coordinator Kirilee will share the effective formats and management for a virtual masquerade and the logistics needed to make it a success.
About Stephanie Guzzardo
Stephanie has been a veteran of the gaming industry for over 12 years, having started her career as a freelance journalist in 2008 before jumping headlong into working for game companies as a community manager and customer support specialist starting in 2010. She started at Twitch in 2017 as a Community Programs manager where she first dipped her toes in helping out with the TwitchCon cosplay contest before taking it over as the Executive Producer in 2018. Since then, Stephanie has moved into Influencer Marketing and working with Twitch Partners on paid programs. However, Stephanie maintains her role as Executive Producer and consultant for TwitchCon North America and (pending future in person events) TwitchCon Europe cosplay contests as it is her passion project and loves working with and elevating the Cosplay Community on Twitch.
