I'm thrilled to share that my book "Yaya Han's World of Cosplay", published by Sterling, Inc. is now officially available worldwide!
"Yaya Han's World of Cosplay" is a "Guide to Fandom Costume Culture," told through my unique point of view from within the cosplay community. Not only is this book an in depth look at how modern cosplay developed over the past 20 years, it also explores the sociology of fan costuming and discusses the positive as well as negative aspects of this art form. Lastly, it tells the story of how I went from a little girl in China to a globally known name in fandom and entrepreneur in America.
Order an autographed copy of the book through Yaya directly!
Lastly, you can also get "Yaya Han's World of Cosplay" from Indiebound!
Since events are gatherings are not possible this year, it would help me tremendously if you ordered a book and left a review on the listing page! If you have ever wanted to support me in any endeavor, please consider getting this book for yourself or as a gift. It truly has not been easy to release a book in the middle of a pandemic. For it to be successful, I need any and all support that I can get.
I have to admit, writing a book was a completely new and unprecedented challenge, especially because I opted to not hire a ghost writer in order to tell this story in my own words. I spent the first half of 2019 holed up in my work room writing this book and As a first time author and a non-native English speaker, this was by far the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life.
It was also a longtime dream, finally finally fulfilled, and I am incredibly proud of the end result. I hope it will resonate with die hard cosplay and costuming fans as well as those who have never cosplayed before or recently started their journey.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me and my cosplay activities through out the years. Without you, I never would have gotten the chance to work with an amazing publishing company such as Sterling, or experienced the countless memorable moments that wove together to make this book. Thank you so so much.
