While TV—and okay fine... sometimes me—have been quick to make merciless fun of cosplay people, this new Syfy show Heroes of Cosplay does a good job of demonstrating the obsessive care these guys take to make a truly awesome outfit. And tonight's debut episode is set right here at Portland's Wizard World convention, and makes fine use of hometown cosplay guy-made-good, Jesse Lagers. Check it out.

Heroes of Cosplay debuts tonight on Syfy, 10 pm.
