"One of my favorite cosplay memories is competing at the Obey Me voice actor-judged cosplay competition. I've made so many Obey Me cosplays, it was fun to be around other people who felt passionately about the characters."

Dahlia is a romanceable character in indie dating simulator game Monster Prom. In the game, you have to romance a character at monster school and invite them to Prom - at your own peril. Dahlia is unlockable during the game's "second term" expansion release. She is an aggressive demon who wants to take over the 8th circle of Hell. Dahlia has a major rivalry with the son of the current rulers, Damien Lavey.
@cosplayatlas made the cosplay. They used EVA foam coated in wood glue to craft the horns from one of Kamui Cosplay's horn templates. The horns are hollow, but the base has a layer of fabric that was sewn to the wig so it can be reused. The sweatshirt is also home-made with plush fabric perfect for colder weather.
Location: Olrando, Florida
Cosplayer general info
@cosplayatlas is 24 years old and has been cosplaying for five years. They moved to Florida in 2022 so that they could go to more conventions and improve their cosplay skills.
"My favorite convention is Convergence in Minnesota. The convention has an older population with more of a comic-book focus, but it is a volunteer-run passion project. The convention makes it fun to volunteer a couple of hours and then keep on with the party - from absolutely amazing themed party rooms to fun events such as fantasy-themed spelling bees. The convention is very clearly a product of love."
