There have been studies on the psychology of why people dress up in costumes and take on different personas. The reasons vary from simple enjoyment of making costumes to complicated escapism. There have been articles released from psychologists like Dr. Ali Mattu to neuroscientists such as Dr. Paul Zehr. We will cover some of the reasons that have been discussed via these studies with a cosplay veteran of 27 years. She has participated in mascot work, in fursuits, as a stylist for cosplayers, talent manager for publications, done extensive photowork for national publications, has a degree in both Psychology and VIsual Communications. She spoken on behalf of the cosplay community in the news and with the media and now runs the only locally created cosplay charity in Texas.
