The Pacific Northwest Guild of Cosplayers was founded in 2018. We are a community of cosplayers here in the Pacific Northwest working to better our culture and craft by building community. We strive to teach inclusivity, creativity and support for our members and the greater cosplay community. As a group, we engage in social meetups, photography shoots and crafting support. We can often be found at our local cons in either a booth, panel, or taking pictures with our Guildmates.


The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an international, non-profit, volunteer-run educational organization dedicated to the study, recreation and reenactment of the best qualities of pre-17th society. In the SCA, the Knowne World is divided into Kingdoms, which are made up of Principalities and Baronies. The Barony of Three Mountains is the local chapter for Multnomah and Clackamas Counties, and located within the Kingdom of An Tir, which spans Oregon, Washington, and most of Western Canada.  The SCA provides opportunities for the research and study of medieval arts, crafts, cultures, music, and societies. Participants are encouraged to find and explore areas that interest them and then hopefully teach others about what they have learned. Throughout the year the SCA hosts day and weekend-long events where participants can meet new people, take free classes and enjoy a variety of activities. The SCA is an inclusive family-friendly place for all ages to make friends and explore new skills.


SheProp is a unique and vital part of the cosplay community. From inception, it has been designed to support female, non-binary and transgender cosplayers, artists and makers of all skill levels across the globe. In the SheProp Community space, members can post work-in-progress images, ask questions, and fully engage with a robust maker community without fear of receiving unsolicited “advice” and degrading commentary, a common issue within most other online maker spaces. Topics surrounding sensitive social commentary are commonly discussed within the community, with an emphasis on education, understanding and empathy. SheProp has expanded to include several additional forums and communities to reach even more cosplayers and makers.


This is a cosplay group founded in the pacific northwest of the United States and is open to anyone anywhere in the United States and the world. Anyone is welcome to join and if you have a cosplay that’s awesome and if you want to make one we will help you out.
