My Cosplays

Cosplay: the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie, television show, book, comic, or video game, especially one from the Japanese genres of manga and anime.
 All I will say is don’t knock it ’til you try it. Even then, don’t knock it! And remember, it doesn’t matter your sex, gender, size, race, cultural background, anything… can cosplay whomever, or whatever, you want to cosplay.

While I don’t cosplay like I used to, I still have all my costumes, and I do have a list of ones I would love to re-create.

Billie Piper loved it, so woot! Actress approved!! Cosplay achievement unlocked!



River Song – Comicpalooza 2014
Yes, I was shooting at myself 😉 Kudos to the NASA peeps for making the suit’s arms move.


Femme!Merle, or Merlene as she is affectionately known as. – Austin Comic Con 2013
 I am very proud of Merle’s hand, especially as I made it on an incredibly tight budget. Best part of it is that both Michael Rooker and Norman Reedus loved it! Another cosplay achievement unlocked 🙂

Castaway!Eleventh Doctor with Wilson!Handles – Gallifrey One 2014 (Handles was a hit)

    Cool blog! I agree about Cosplaying at least once. I went as Nathan the first day and DeadMau5 the second. DeadMau5 was definitely more fun. 😉

      I don’t know how I just now saw this 😛 It’ll be fun to see who we get you to cosplay as next!


Leave me some love!
