Cosplay Stars from Russia. Promoting Games by Cosplay



Share this Post

Cosplay, or impersonation of various game characters, accompanies many events in the game industry. It is hard to imagine that Igromir or Comic Con will ever go without this bright and colorful complement. Apart from that, cosplay becomes more and more popular for streaming, as well as among bloggers with their accounts on Instagram and TikTok.

It is safe to say that, in fact, if a character from your game became a cosplay prototype, it is sort of a users’ recognition of popularity of not only the very character, but also the game in general. Moreover, a bright and outstanding video made by a cosplayer can even become a great advertisement for your game.

To cooperate with cosplayers, your game does not need to be popular already. Cosplayers can become a great alternative to game bloggers at the stage of game launch (that is, if it has memorable, vivid characters).

To help you find cosplayers in Russia, we made our list of the most interesting people who also work in the gaming field. Besides, in order to select suitable cosplayers, you can always address our marketing agency RMAA Games.
