Cosplay

Something that I have been getting into more and more is Cosplay.

Curtis and I do great dark cosplays like Edward Scissorhands (left) and The Crow (right)

Cosplay is dressing up and making exact replicas of pop culture icons (usually comic book, anime, video game characters but also movie and tv characters that have a certain look/costume)….. NOT on halloween. It’s making halloween everyday!

An example I did a panel at Thundercon2015 about heavy prosthetic makeup for cosplay. I did up a very researched  uruk hai orc form Lord of the Rings. 

Sometimes you can not be too strict with your recreations, by gender bending (like me as Freddy Kruger) and/or making them sexier or put the hipster twist on it. The rest of the time its getting the little details that makes  a costume being perfect. The recreation is a form of honoring something that you really love!

Magic Night with the Border Cats hosted by ThunderGames & Gifts. Cosplaying for new Magic the Gathering release. Diane and myself were Liliana Vess and a zombie from the new Dark Magic pack.

Sometimes if you are a good enough cosplayer you can get hired for different events as a model. You can become that character, have their mannerisms and say their catchphrases.

I like to personally cosplay Lady Deadpool, Hipster Ariel, Morticia Addams and Freddy Kruger.
