ManY, may coz, but only a few will, AFRICOZ!
The AFRICOZ costume contest is held annually at The East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention. It serves as a new way in which ECBACC fulfills its mission of celebrating positive images of Blacks (African-descended people) in the comic book and sci-fi industry. “AfriCoz” cosplay is defined as pop-culture cosplay with a cultural or aesthetic focus on portrayals of Black characters. “AfriCoz” not only celebrates Black characters but also allows costumers and cosplayers of African descent to fully engage the recreation of fantasy costuming without the cultural biases that brand Black characters as second-rate, inferior, and/or unpopular. A costumer who costumes as a character of Black or African descent is described as an Africozer or and Africozplayer!
