What is Cosplay? And can I do it?

What is Cosplay?  And can I do it?

In recent years Cosplay has rising to fame but I still get asked pretty regularly “What is Cosplay?” or “Where can I do it?”  To help answer those questions Heroes’ Beacon will be hosting a Cosplay Meetup on February 24th.  We are hoping to attract those Cosplay curious as well as the veterans in the community. Before then I hope to answer a few common questions.  What is Cosplay? Cosplay stands for “costume play” and is…

Cosplay Masquerade and You

Cosplay Masquerade and You

So, I recently revisited some old cosplay posts– updating the image and text a bit, and maybe you guys are tired of hearing me talk about cosplay and Sailor Moon– but maybe not. I wanted to talk about Cosplay because Fundy Fan Fest is coming up and we are hosting a Cosplay Masquerade! I think that’s pretty exciting, even if I won’t be taking part (cause I’ll be on staff). Shushuwafflez will be judging for…

Cosplay Curious: Pokemon Trainers in Training

Cosplay Curious: Pokemon Trainers in Training

If you’ve been following along (or if you haven’t- welcome aboard!) I got Cosplay Curious after attending Fan Expo in 2014. I have completed exactly zero cosplays- til now. But I follow more than a few cosplayers and adore the work that people do. Really mind blowing stuff. What is a Pokemon Trainer? From the Pokemon Wiki: Pokémon Trainer is the term commonly used for a person who catches, occasionally names, and trains several different kinds…

Top 5 Cosplayers I follow

Top 5 Cosplayers I follow

In 2014 I got the cosplay bug… I even almost finished one! Turns out I made the dress front backwards, which was minor really and I never got the wig or shoes finished, but it was pretty fun nevertheless. I’d like to finish that one, but I’d pretty much have to start from scratch now. In 2018 I have an event which doesn’t require a cosplay, but I feel like it needs one, so I…

Surviving a Convention (with children)

Surviving a Convention (with children)

Convention season is upon us! A couple years ago I attended my first ever BIG convention. It was Fan Expo’s 20th anniversary with the equivalent of a city in attendance. I believe it was something like 125,000 people over 4 days. It was amazing and insane. We spent a lot of time in Artist’s Alley and even more time waiting in line for photographs and autographs and food. It was an amazing experience- the staff…

Cosplay Curious: Planning a Cosplay

Cosplay Curious: Planning a Cosplay

Updates on my end Not gonna lie- I’m excited to do this! I have bought all the fabric I need for Jem (unless I decide I feel the need to make her tights rather than buy them- but if I can buy them I absolutely will!). I also need to get earrings and probably some glitter glue or something to make the fabric shiny, and shoes… seems like buying stuff is half the battle! The…
