Recap: C2E2 2015

Yikes. I’ve been AWOL for a while, guys, and that makes me feel sad inside. So much has happened recently, and I hope to catch you all up on my life–starting with the greatest con in Chicago, C2E2. I did all three days at C2E2 this year, and we were lucky enough to get a […]

Top Five: Essentials for a Cosplay Make-up Kit

I spent this past weekend at Project Cosawesome 2 (the somehow-even-more-amazing-was-that-even-possible follow-up to the first Project Cosawesome, which I attended in November). I brought two new costumes with me–Katana and Blink–and even though my body paint for Blink didn’t make it, my make-up was more extensive than it had ever been before. I mean, just look […]

Deconstructing a Costume: Gender-Bent Ozymandias

My favorite thing about creating gender-bent costumes is the creative opportunity that comes along with the decision to feminize a male costume. Not that Ozymandias is the most masculine costume out there–which actually presented a bit of a challenge. What was I going to do to make a female Ozy outfit? Ozymandias has two costumes–the […]

Kollision Con Photoshoot: Gender-Bent Ozymandias

I’m a huge Watchmen fan. I think it’s one of the greatest comics out there for history/government nerds, and that it has an amazing cast of characters. I’m also one of those weirdos that LOVES the movie (I think it’s just gorgeous, and that the cast is great). As a result, I’ve been jonesing to do […]

2015 Cosplay Plans

A new year is full of possibilities–especially cosplay possibilities. Seriously, that was the thing I was looking forward to the most as the New Year turned: making new costumes to wear to conventions. I barely even made it into 2015 before I made a new costume: Ozymandias, which I wore to Kollision Con. 2015 Convention Schedule/Costumes […]

2014 Year in Review: Cosplay

I’ve been cosplaying for a few years now, but I completely outdid myself this year. 2015 is looking to be the same. I made a total of eight costumes from scratch (or close to it), and even wore some other costumes put together from regular clothes (which I’m not going to include here, since I didn’t construct them […]

Recap: Project Cosawesome

It’s a little difficult to write about things when so much time has passed, but I finally have enough pictures to share with you to make it worth showing you guys! Project Cosawesome happened from November 14-16th. It was an event for cosplayers and cosplay photographers to come together, share the things we know, and […]
