Cosplay Guest

Latest Cosplay Guest Announcement - Humpasaurus

I’ve been cosplaying since 2014. To be honest I don’t even know how it became a hobby! I think I just saw other people making things and wearing costumes and thought it would be fun to join in. I’d never really been good at sewing, and I had no experience in armour building so I wasn’t entirely sure where to start.

In the end I leaned towards using makeup to create a character or portray an actor/actress. I am a fine artist so I love painting and realism - so I’ve kind of adapted those skills and put them to use in my cosplay! I love using makeup effects and wigs to get into character and add another dimension of accuracy to my costumes. I think that’s why my favourite cosplay is Nicky Nichols from Orange is the New Black. It takes quite a lot of work to create the makeup look - but in the end it’s worth it and playing her character for the day is so much fun! Now I always look for a new makeup challenge and discovering ways to become my favourite characters.
