I'm returning to cosplay and charity work after many years off. A friend advised me to give this a try - so thought I would. I help out in a lot of the online facebook groups so guess it is natural progression. I have used this site loads over the years and sent many others to it from my personal and private pages. Was reluctant to join since I do not have internet at home so it is difficult for me at times to post updates and upload builds :(
Past builds have been -
Batman - League of Legends / Dark Knight Ninja Version
Daredevil (Afleck Version/Season 1 Netflix Version)
GI Joe Retaliation
Punisher / Frank Castle Version
Watchmen - Rorschach
StarLord (Version 1) - Guardians of the Galaxy
Hawkeye - SHIELD Version
Resident Evil (STARS/Raccoon City/Umbrella Corps)
Current Builds working on-
Batman Dawn Of Justice
Captain Cold - DC Legends of Tomorrow
Heatwave - DC Legends of Tomorrow
Vigilante - CWArrow
Wild Dog - CWArrow
I'm fairly busy with working on these and on a significant reduced budget after being unwell and having no income.
My next cosplay will be finished later this month and be used at a local convention and charity booking we have. When attending conventions I try to do a mainstream character and also one not mainstream (doing 2-3 characters in one day can be tiring, but very rewarding).
I sometimes portray a character I feel is cult or just one that I think ROCKS and would look like it would kick ass if done correctly and given air time. I am fairly open to the build process being as close to screen accurate where possible if time and money allows. Being OCD does not help the budget, though I do have to make allowances and try to make compensations when funds don't allow accuracy may suffer, though I do try to ensure the outfit still looks cool or ROCKS!
I also make bespoke MARVEL and AGENTS OF SHIELD props and replica's many of which are screen accurate, every thing from case files, identity cards, dossiers, posters, custom decals, and the occasional custom tee shirts/decals.
I have just begun to make foam armour and props, as such I have started to make templates for others to use.
When not building props and costumes I help build web pages and also study!
I do occasionally help organise photoshoots for other costume enthusiasts, artists and designers.
Hope to share some of my build here :)
