Jaco Tartaruga is a movie enthusiast who loves comic books, fictional characters, and themes that drive the characters to become who they are. He also loves any and all types of art expressions. After a few years of roaming through the NYCC Artist Alley, and observing what people do, Jaco Tartaruga was inspired to do something for himself. He explains that his art comes from a very deep place in his heart, and it’s expressed with emotion, chaos, distress, that has been contained for a very long time….and it is now unleashed.

The talent takes to create a great cosplay outfit the way some of these artists have was just amazing to see.
What is Cosplay?
Many cosplayers create their own outfits, referencing images of the characters in the process. In the creation of the outfits, much time is given to detail and qualities, thus the skill of a cosplayer may be measured by how difficult the details of the outfit are and how well they have been replicated.
Because of the difficulty of replicating some details and materials, cosplayers often educate themselves in crafting specialties such as textiles, sculpture, face paint, fiberglass, fashion design, woodworking, and other uses of materials in the effort to render the look and texture of a costume accurately.
Cosplayers often wear wigs in conjunction with their outfit to further improve the resemblance to the character. This is especially necessary for anime and manga or video-game characters who often have unnaturally colored and uniquely styled hair. Simpler outfits may be compensated for their lack of complexity by paying attention to material choice and overall high quality.
