Costume Lounge and Funky Costume Corps


Come 'Get your cosplay on!' at the Costume Lounge taking place at the Funk Parade, the free all-day Music Festival and interactive parade happening on May 6th 2017.

The Costume Lounge is a place where people who love costumes can come out and celebrate this love among other parade attendees. We will have face painting, costume and prop construction, photo sessions and more. 

Your hosts for the costume lounge will be Tia Cherie Polite (MzTiyah Cosplay) and Wendell Smith Sr. (Scorpking Costuming) along with a costumed corp of featured guests, Brian Gregory (Bwildd Cosplay), Darlena Marie (Darlena Marie Cosplays), Corey Morgan (Corey Morgan Straight Outta Cosplay) and Tanya Raymond (Haitian Wonder Woman Cosplay) with Nadia Adona (Enelay Creative) as our official Costume Lounge Photographer.
