#28DaysofBlackCosplay: A Photo Retrospective

Black History Month is a time to remember the contributions of people of color to the development of the United States and their impacts within U.S. borders and beyond. Taking a cue from our friends over at PopCultureUncovered, this month of Black History has also been used to spotlight the cosplay efforts of people of color. During our trips to various conventions over the years, we have encountered may dynamic cosplayers of all ages, sizes, and hues. In honor of the effort, here are a few of our favorite cosplayers.

Pattern Focused: Gingham

Gingham is a medium-weight balanced plain-woven fabric made from dyed cotton or cotton-blend yarn whose name originates from the Malay adjective, genggang meaning striped. It is made of carded, medium or fine yarns, where the coloring is on the warp yarns and always along the grain. Gingham has no right or wrong side with respect to color. Through most widely known as a checkered fabric, gingham as only a striped fabric when it was first imported into Europe during the 17th century.
