Who Are the Trashgoblins?
The Trashgoblins are a Chicago-based community cosplay collective with a mission to support and empower cosplayers and creative-types, but especially those who are just starting out or have limited means to support their passion. Their creative process stems from storytelling, with a preference toward collaborative projects. The Trashgoblins also open their home and workshop (Trashgoblins HQ) to anyone in the community that needs a space, a tool, some help, some feedback, or just some company.
"LIKE IF INDUSTRIAL LIGHT AND MAGIC GOT RESOURCES FROM GOODWILL. IN A GOOD WAY."
"THEY ALL SAY THEY'RE NOT MANATEES IN HUMAN SUITS, AND I FIND THAT COMFORTING"
"I WAS THROWING OUT A BUNCH OF STUFF AFTER SPRING CLEANING AND THEY BURST OUT OF MY DUMPSTER, SNATCHED MY GARBAGE BAGS AND RAN, SCREAMING IN A LANGUAGE NOT HEARD FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. I GUESS THAT'S A PUBLIC SERVICE?"
