Started in February of 2015 and quickly gaining traction in the market, The Kaigan is a media brand focused on Cosplay. Although initially getting noticed for Cosplay Composite Photography, the brand has a lot more behind it with extended plans in the market not yet announced.
To date, The Kaigan has attended a variety of conventions in Victoria, Vancouver, Seattle, and Los Angeles with plans to increase reach across North America.
The idea behind The Kaigan started during a Steampunk photoshoot in Victoria BC with a group of local LARPers and models. The event prompted a discussion based around doing something more than just taking them for fun and to find a way to bring people together in a community. After much thought and consideration to long-term goals we formed The Kaigan and began posting online.
During the first few weeks prior to launch many things were shared and talked about to provide initial content. Once launch, the brand seemed to take off from its forefront in Cosplay Photography.
