Have you ever made a web comic or blog with your cosplay photos as the panels with a group of people?

Was it successful? How long did you run the web comic for? And what were you cosplaying?

I am interested in starting a cosplay group blog where commenters can ask questions and then we do photo replies answering the question, in-character, acting out scenes.

I'm just real curious about the success stories though! What blogging platforms did you use, or did you make your own web site? And what were you cosplaying?

I've seen a lot of cosplay blogs where people make their own comics. The first one I found was a Persona 4 blog. If you Google Ask Yu Narukami it should come up, it is a good example of what I'm talking about. I looked it up again and found they made animated gif for some of the comic panels!

Sounds like just a cosplay "Ask" blog. I've only ever followed one and it quickly petered off. They're a lot of work, and if you're not funny it just becomes cringey, or at the very least won't garner the attention you'd need to keep that kind of thing going.

As for platforms, I think Tumblr is the most common, since asks can come in that cosplayers can then respond to. It's also where a lot of fandom stuff is based out of so there's already people there wanting fan content.
