My name’s Nicola and I cosplay, hence the squished together moniker – Nicosplay! I’ve been cosplaying for seven years, and in that time I’ve gone from raiding second hand clothes, to sewing costumes from scratch. Cosplay is an exhilarating experience, and has been an amazing opportunity for me to develop skills I didn’t know I had. For me, cosplay is an opportunity to wear clothes I could never wear day-to-day, and to have a fantastic time doing it! My favourite character to cosplay is the Evil Queen from Once Upon a Time, and if you’ve seen her dresses, it’s no wonder why! As well as being fabulous and fun, she’s a character that I admire greatly, and this is my way of paying tribute to her.
