Taking a different approach this time, Project-Nerd is set to launch a fully functional cookbook featuring at least twenty recipes with twenty custom characters accompanying each delicious item creating unique and exciting photo galleries.
The Cosplay Cookbook will contain galleries, recipes, food images, and even detailed description about the custom characters featured in the publication.
The Cosplay Cookbook
The Cosplay Cookbook will be unlike anything else you’ve ever seen. It’s not just a cosplay book. It’s not just a cookbook. It’s a perfect blend of both worlds offering some of the highest quality scenes from over 20 different cosplayers and actors, shot by amazing photographers, and featuring over 20 incredible recipes.
What if we took some of the most awesome, geeky, and fun recipes we’ve ever tried and put together our own cookbook? Even better, what if we took some of our favorite custom designed characters and set them in food related scenes to accompany those recipes?
The Cosplay Cookbook is a project we’ve been discussing internally for years, and the timing, relationships, and funds are all lining up to make 2019 the year we actually make it.
The goal is to create a visually stunning book that is also filled with functional and incredible recipes.
Much of our staff and friends have been cooking for some time and this is the chance to get some of these amazing recipes in front of your face. You want to know how to make an awesome creation called Captain Chocolate Cake? How about crafting some delicious food for your next geek party? Why not try some deliciously delicate Bacon Biscuits? Recipes are to be named later, but we promise they will be awesome.
Cosplay is everywhere. Who doesn’t love the idea of portraying your favorite hero, or even your most feared villain? Adding cosplay into the book was an obvious choice from day one. The relationships we’ve established in the industry mixed with the growing fascination with seeing comic book characters outside of their heroic and villainous roles made us immediately reach out to a team of incredible talent in order to create scenes that will serve to entertain and please the aesthetic eye.
Announcements on how we handle casting updates is still to come, but you can expect to see some amazing cosplayers and photographers involved in this project.
We are setting up scenes that feature characters inspired by creative cosplayers’ own custom characters. Each scene will lend incredibly well to the characters in them, with the gallery not just relating to the food we feature in the cookbook but also completely believable in terms of character interactions and behaviors.

Based on your feedback, recommendations for products and perks, relationships with even more great cosplayers and photographers, and finding avenues to cut some costs we will revisit a campaign with a leaner budget and larger force behind it. Don’t worry nerds, the Cosplay Cookbook is still coming your way soon!
Q: Why are you shooting in the regions/cities you selected?
A: We are trying to keep expenses down when it comes to travel so we can concentrate more funds on publishing, costumes, and food. These regions have a great selection of models and actors and also some fantastic photographers.
Q: How do I get involved?
A: The biggest thing you can do is share, share, share! Share the announcements as they happen, and share the Kickstarter campaign when it starts. If you are a cosplayer and want to get involved, you can sign up with our Google Sign Up Form.
Q: How much will the books cost?
A: We are not entirely certain at this point, but the standard cookbook format will run $25-30 while the coffee table version will be more expensive. Other options are being explored, and with any crowdfunding campaign you can expect additional goodies to claim.
Q: Where will the funds go?
A: The fundraising will cover the cost of the project including model fees, photographer fees, product development, cost of printing, and funding for other perks.
