"YAYA HAN'S WORLD OF COSPLAY"
If you have ever wanted to support me in any endeavor, please consider getting this book for yourself or as a gift. This is one of the most difficult yet meaningful things I have ever accomplished and it would mean a lot to me for you to read my book!
"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.

Hi everyone! I wrote this book in 2019 and it was released in August 2020 amidst the worst of the pandemic.
Even before knowing that I wouldn't be able to do a book tour or even talk to people about the book in person for years, writing a book was a completely new and unprecedented challenge for me! Because I did not hire a ghost writer but chose to tell this story in my own words, I paused traveling and event appearances (an income branch) for several months to sit down every day and write write write. 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 fulfilled, and I am incredibly proud of the end result.
Getting the word out about this book has been really hard because it did not have a normal book launch campaign, and today when fans meet me at events, many are surprised to find that I had written a book!
But I hope it resonates with die-hard cosplay and costuming fans as well as those who have never cosplayed before or recently started their journey and that it will find more readers over time!
Thank you to everyone who has supported me and my cosplay activities throughout 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.
