Shay Rose & Cosplay

Before creating these unique designs, Shay was known for her recreations. She would recreate outfits of Disney characters and celebrities including Lady Gaga. Her love for Cosplay started at a very young age when she did not know what cosplay really is. In 8 standard, she dressed up as a character from a novel, “The Lunar Chronicles” using old curtains and Christmas ribbons.

The thrill of not knowing how to do things got to her and she soon became a recognised member of cosplay forums who was widely appreciated for her recreations. From recreating characters from Deku and White Diamond to Disney Princesses like Belle.

The identity shift

While recreating looks, Shay Rose and her social media presence were limited to cosplay enthusiasts. Soon, with her interests expanding, her circle grew. While creating her own unique designs, she was sparking the interest of more and more people. Then came the 12-foot wide Pink tulle dress which made Shay Rose the internet sensation and her follower horizons expanded drastically.

Shay Rose was now in a dilemma of whether or not she wanted to move from cosplay to mainstream fashion. Owing to her passion for both, she made a division by bifurcating her social media account. She now has 2 accounts on Instagram. One for mainstream fashion and the other one, for a close-knit group of cosplayers. 

The secret sauce of becoming viral

The former UCLA student, Shay Rose knew the internet better than a mere coincidence. Being a GenZ, she is well-equipped for the trends and feeds the curiosity of people with her work. Her interactive way of creating the outfits really helps her connect with the audience.

Shay lays out various poles and tries different techniques to keep her audience in the loop during the entire process. She uses social media as a tool to strike more involvement of people. From helping her choose ideas for a project to help her in the design process, her audience is truly her Fam.

Shay Rose, a Content Creator, has created a mark for herself in the fashion industry with her futuristic approach to fashion. She does not limit fashion but believes in its limitless potential. Her outfits are living proof of this.
