Today Lumin’s Workshop sells cosplay supplies rather than baked goods, with shelves of prop-making foam, clay, and thermoplastic alongside paint, glue, dye, LEDs, black panther suit and books about every aspect of the hobby. Cosplayer Maggie Hu runs Lumin’s Workshop (opens in new tab) out of a former pie store. But it’s also a space for cosplayers to learn and to practice. Cosplay, a portmanteau of “costume play”, is an activity and performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character.
