Meet a Cosplayer: Ash aka Ashweez

So I figured I’d end this series with my own answers! I don’t know if that’s vain but I thought maybe some people out there might be curious. I’d like to thank all my cosplayer friends that helped me with this series! I look up to all of you and you all inspire me to become better at my craft!

Meet a Cosplayer: Drisana AKA Fairchild Cosplay

I met Drisana online through the Kumoricon Facebook group. Sydney had asked the group if there would be interest in joining their DnD Eeveelutions group and I answered the call! After joining their private facebook group and chat, I got to know Drisana through all her progress posts. She’ll be our Leafeon Ranger for our Eeveelutions group and she’s not only making her cosplay, she’s helping make both female and male versions of our Umbreon Thieves! She works super quickly and has gained quite a following on her instagram, facebook, and youtube despite only officially cosplaying for a year and a half. I can’t wait to see what other cosplays she does in the future! Continue reading “Meet a Cosplayer: Drisana AKA Fairchild Cosplay”

Meet a Cosplayer: Sydney AKA Cosparade

I met Sydney online through the Kumoricon Facebook group. She had posted to the group a picture of some Pokemon gijinka concept art asking if anyone was interested in joining her cosplay group for Kumoricon. There was only one female concept left and I (after lots of internal debate) jumped at the chance. I can say without a doubt that it was the best decision I made that whole month. It’s led to some great online friendships and hopefully we’ll have some great fun and awesome photos once Kumoricon’s over! She’s been leading the group like a champ, arranging our meetup and scheduling a professional photographer and everything. Continue reading “Meet a Cosplayer: Sydney AKA Cosparade”

Meet a Cosplayer: Bliss AKA Truly Bliss

I met Bliss earlier this year during PAX South. We were both hanging out in the main area, taking a breather on some of the couches that were set up in between the main exhibition halls. She was wearing an amazing dress she made in the style of the Fallout video game series and I just had to ask for her picture. We got to talking and found out we both lived in Austin, so we friended each other on Facebook so that we could have some cosplay shenanigans together back in Austin! Unfortunately, unknown to either of us, I’d be moving just two months after meeting her to the other side of the country. Despite that, we still keep up with each others cosplay progress on Instagram and Facebook. Hopefully one day soon we can meet up at another con! Until then, we’ll always have the internet.

Meet a Cosplayer: Kelsie AKA Ithildin Cosplay

I met Kelsie earlier this year during PAX South. She was cosplaying as Aurora from the video game “Child of Light” and I absolutely loved her cosplay. Her dress and crown were beautiful and she even had a little blue effect in her hands for Igniculus, the blue firefly companion that aids Aurora throughout the game. I got a picture of her and didn’t really talk to her a whole lot since Jason and I were headed out. Continue reading “Meet a Cosplayer: Kelsie AKA Ithildin Cosplay”

New Series: Meet a Cosplayer

I had so much fun writing my “Leaving Home” Series that I decided to write another series, this time about cosplayers! I’ve asked a few of my friends to share their stories of how they got into cosplay, what cosplays they’ve done, and what they think of the cosplay community as a whole. I love finding out how friends stumbled upon this hobby that’s gained lots of online traction and attention in the past few years. This will follow more of a Q&A format, unlike my story-based “Leaving Home” series, mostly because I wanted to allow the cosplayers’ personalities to shine through their answers.
