Cosplayers, or people who dress up in costume, have a pretty cool hobby.
Some prefer to buy their gear, but there are a ton of amazing designers and craftspeople who wear their own creations and share them with us on social media. One of these designers, Olivia Mears, has a huge following on Instagram, where more than 10,000 people follow her at avantgeek. Her geeky take on the avant garde is wide-ranging, beautiful, and sometimes, even good enough to eat.
Mears has taken on the most complicated projects, including Belle’s ballgown from “Beauty and the Beast.”
