Don't tell these sci fi-fantasy geeks to "Get a life!" They already have one — and it's making them pretty damn famous. Syfy's new reality series Heroes of Cosplay, premiering Tuesday at10:30 pm/9:30c, will follow nine uberobsessed cosplayers — that's short for "costume players" — as they travel the comic-book conventions of America dressed as their favorite characters from film, TV, anime and video games. Their costumes are elaborate, self-made and, in some cases, quite erotic.
"If you assume the world of cosplay is filled with social misfits confused about the priorities in life, you're in for a surprise," says executive producer Mark Cronin.
