Developing a brand fit for Cosplayers
We all know there are hundreds of courses out there these days. but not anything specific for aspiring cosplayers with the same learning structure.
Kristy and Emma presented the concept of a more structured learning model for cosplay to the parent companies CEOGlenn Street, who wholeheartedly supported the idea. After a long year of development. Cosplay Skilltree was officially launched in 2021!
We began with a course and a beginner prop kit, and have now expanded to monthly content think patreon style and free resources for our members who pay monthly.
We're passionate about connecting with you as a budding cosplaver, and show you easy stepping stones for you journey.We're excited to see where we can grow and expand our own skilltree in real life with you!
The Parent Company
Street Characters Inc. roots trace back to 1984 when our company president Glenn Street worked with two high profile local mascots: the very first mascot in the National Hockey League. Harvey the Hound of the Calgary Flames, and Harry the Horse of the world famous Calgary Exhibition and Stampede.
While performing as Harvey, Glenn was frequently asked by other teams how they could set a similar character of their own. Seeing a great opportunity. Glenn started Street Characters Inc. in 1987
Testimonials from our members
Never get stuck
I've always done costuming for different materials. Usually on the cheap for a long time and I thought well this this has potential. I had to think about it, but it only took me like one pass the one aisle to come to the decision. This is a good way to get started. The price is reasonable and has everything basic ready to go and the learnings. I liked seeing somebody else do it in real time and liked the ability to go back in the videos. So I'm quite happy with the purchase and I get to meet all the new people too.
My husband and I have done a lot of costuming over the years. We didn't know what we were doing and trying to find information online for how to
do things it's just so much to dig through. We saw the booth and talking to Kristy it sounded like a really good idea. I thought it was a great value to end up with three complete props. I was really surprised how simple and easy the process is and everything that we needed is in the box, which is amazing.
So, we are really happy with it.
I was in a world of Darkness, lost in a sea of different, YouTube and Instagram, and Tik-Tok of confusion, nothing would work for me. I spoke to them, they are wonderful people, and I found that instead of being overwhelmed, they teach you each piece all in small bite-sized chunks so that you never feel overwhelmed. Also doing it with another group and engaging in the live stream and you have people who are working alongside you, you get to see the successes. Since I started Cosplay Skilltree, I can finally say that I am a cosplayer.
