WHAT IN THE WORLD IS A VIRTUAL COSPLAYER????
Is Cosplay Boss Legit?
We are not in the business of identifying the legitimacy of something posted online but based on our knowledge about cosplay and what Cosplay Boss is offering, it is something really weird. I think the aim is to help cosplayers earn money but how can you do that? Virtual cosplay is possible and that is talking virtually while in cosplay but this is risky as well and commercializes cosplay to their own ends.
Here is a quick information as derived from their Tumblr.

Our Conclusion on Cosplay Boss
We just want to raise caution and advise cosplayers to have a second thought before joining this Cosplay Boss due to the following:
- Their grammar is so horrible.
- It does not show the name of the Founder.
- It does not show proper business permits.
- It has no visible office address or proper address.
- Their method and business are questionable.
I believe that Cosplay Boss will be a website which will be available for everyone based on what they offer.

Due to the fact that cosplay is so mainstream, there are business minded people out there who want to cash-in on cosplay. The usual victims here are those which are new to the hobby and wishes to be known and also be part of fellow cosplayers. Consider this as a friendly advice and warning. Be responsible.
