It is episode 7 of Roll Play Grow, the podcast for tabletop entrepreneurs, creators, and fans.
Today’s guest is a very talented cosplayer and writer, Sarahndipity. She discovered the cosplay scene back in 2017 and has been growing in her skill and following ever since. We talk about closet cosplay and keeping it affordable, growing an audience, tips for keeping up with motivation and dealing with trolls, and how she’s breaking into the writing industry as well. I really enjoyed chatting with Sarah, and if you’re thinking of getting into cosplay, then you should definitely keep listening!
Before we jump into today’s episode, there’s a few items of business to discuss. The first is a reminder that we do have a Patreon for Lightheart Adventures and Roll Play Grow. It’s a pretty cool place, and you have options on whether you’d like to follow the adventurer track, which will get you maps and adventures, or the merchant track, which gets you some fun bonuses around this podcast. If Patreon isn’t your jam, you can also support the show by subscribing, sharing with your friends and leaving a review! Reviews are super important for this show to be able to grow, so if you’ve been hanging out and you like what you’re hearing, please drop me a review on your podcast platform of choice.
Lastly, I want to give a quick shout out to my favorite coffee company, Found Familiar. If you like coffee, D&D, cool art, and supporting artists, then you should absolutely check out their coffee. They make absolutely delicious coffee that I’m super spoiled to now and all of their packaging features some gorgeous art.
