Jeremie Sloan and Allan Quick are your average neighbors by day. They have jobs and families, they mow the lawn, they go to the grocery store. They also just happen to be superheroes.

A Halo soldier. A stormtrooper. A vintage Batman. An X-wing pilot. As cosplayers who are both members of Oregon's Portland Superheroes Coalition, Jeremie and Allan have several alter egos. This short film explores what it means to be a cosplayer by following Jeremie and Allan through what is to them the everyday. It looks at the time, money, and dedication that goes into making cosplayers' stunningly detailed and accurate costumes and delves into who cosplayers are, where their passion takes them, and why they do what they do.

"Cosplayer" was featured in 2014 on Oregon Public Broadcasting's (OPB) annual television series Oregon Lens.
