One good example is a bunch of videos where they’d pass a makeup brush from one side of the screen to the other, transforming from a regular civilian person into their character, before passing it along to the next person down the chain. Conventions shut down pretty quickly in 2020, and I saw a ton of cosplayers who were frustrated and upset about that-not because they were being selfish, but because these were the only times when they got to see friends and fellow cosplayers, and cosplay as that sort of social release.
