  1. On February 2020, I have done a month dedicated to Black Cosplaying. I sent out a link that would lead to Google Forms app where cosplayers are welcome to display their craft and answer questions about themselves in their own words. At first I felt very very nervous and doubtful this would work, due to my lack of confidence and the amount of school work I am having. Yet, I were able to get a couple of cosplayers who joined in and share their story. I was happy to check out their story, and understand their struggle about being a black cosplayer. Things have drastically change over the past 8 months, yet I feel cosplaying should still be the same, being appreciated by all the fans and show the beauty and joy of being a cosplayer. While I haven't gotten around to promote a cosplay appreciation month, it is something of a interest of mine to one day have a month of full of articles of cosplayers, 1 of each day, and allow you the readers to check out and learn something about the cosplayer themselves. Here below are the links of all the cosplayers who participated from the latest to the earliest, strangely enough, of those who share their experience and their love of cosplaying. If you or anyone you know do enjoy cosplaying and like to get involve in articles like this, please let me know. You can email me at [email protected] or hit me up on the messenger. Please let me know it's about the cosplaying articles so I can get a better understanding as to what is going on. But for now, please click down each of the cosplayers as they'll take you over to their page and read about who they are. And to all those cosplaying or love cosplaying...Stay Awesome.
  2. There are many reasons as to why people would get involve in cosplaying. Yet, those who cosplay for the greater good such as lifting the spirits of sick children in the hospital or getting involve in a charity event is more the ever so special. Today, we meet Jamarri, a cosplayer who has done the latter of the two and since then has been cosplaying for all his life up to this day. You can find Jamarri on Facebook at JuiceManCosplay and on Instagram at juiceman_cosplay. Here is his story: "I'm a print designer by trade; currently working for SEIU 1199 New England, the Healthcare Employees Union as their Communication Specialist - I handle all outgoing communications to members as well as maintaining our website and social media content I've been attending cons since 2011, but decided to cosplay as Insomniac Spiderman for the first time in 2017 at a local con. I met up with a friend who introduced me to his friend who was looking for cosplayers to photograph and/or join a charity group called 'The Band of Heroes'. I dived head first into cosplaying then and haven't looked back. Being a person of color, we get a lot of backlash for cosplaying characters who aren't POC. There's also the skill gap being sort of new to it all; crafting with foam and sewing are something I'm working on now. I enjoy cosplaying and attending cons as an escape from everyday life; but would love to partner up with a company or two in the future!"
  3. Cosplaying can sometimes bring a vibrant ray of energy from those who always wanted to get involve. It's the opportunity to finally become that character you always watched on the screen or in art form and bring them to life. For Mandygirlsmiles, it's something that she loves and enjoys and something that has help bring her creativity and attitude to life. You can follow her on Instagram at Mandygirlsmiles and on Facebook at Amanda Whitley. Here's her story: " Hello My name is Amanda. I am 34 yrs old from NYC. I work as a scheduling coordinator for a hospice. I am a proud mama to an 11 year old girl who also cosplays. I love all things nerdy obscure and different. My face cosplays so far is Squirrel girl, my Hellgirl, my peach raider, and cannabis ivy lol. I've always been a fan of costumes (Halloween is my fave) My love for geek culture drives me too. I wanted to meet like minded individuals. I also had a wish to expand my creativity. I enjoy cosplay I've never looked back! I am not a stickler for accuracy, more so the art of bringing these characters to life. Sometimes I can get over ambitious and become overwhelmed. But when I complete a cosplay I feel complete and proud. I can be a procrastinator but when I have an idea in my head I must execute it. Last year I started embracing using my own hair in my cosplays. I was hesitant at first, being me and my hair haven't always had the best relationship. I was overwhelmed with the love and look forward to rocking my fro as much as possible. Proudly shining through with my Afro Latina roots :) I see cosplay being more accepting. Soon I hope it becomes totally colorblind. We are all nerds once and for all. I wish the hate and cosplay snobs disappear. COSPLAY IS FOR ALL Two I hope to continue to grow in my crafting and armor work."
  4. To kick off our inaugural Appreciation Month, we take a look at nelld_it_cosplay. A hero to our country and a hero to the kids in hospitals and in honorary to a child of his own. Be sure to follow him on Facebook and Instagram under nelld_it_cosplay and on Twitter @nelld_it81. Here's his story. "I am a 38 year old army veteran. I currently work in the nuclear industry. I’m married and have 4 kids. I’m currently studying computer engineering and in my free time I enjoy gaming, comics, and movies. A friend of mine does hospital visits to the children’s hospital dressed as super heroes and pass out toys. So back 2013 he asked me if I’d be interested in doing it. My wife and I had lost a child at 3 months the year before, so when he asked me I agreed to go as a way to honor his memory. One of the challenges I am faced with is balancing work, family, school, and cosplay. There were times where I’ve been con crunching to get a cosplay ready and study and also take finals. I have also faced people telling me the characters I cosplay aren’t black like Thor, Star Lord, and The Punisher. In the future there will probably be a lot more technology incorporated with in the design of a cosplay."
  5. Hey nobbers, this is my latest gaming video on Youtube. I have finally started remaking my old videos but with my new set-up and this is the first video in the series. This is Tomb Raider 1996 and the first four levels. If you like it, thumbs up. If not, thumbs up anyway. I'm going to be playing all the TR games from start to finish over the next few months so keep an eye out if you're a Tomb Raider fan. If you want to see me play any other games, let me knowwwww! NX
  6. So it's done! My very first cosplay prop. As you can probably tell, it's Lara Croft's climbing axe from the Square Enix version of Tomb Raider. It was much needed for my future gaming conventions as Lara Croft isn't Lara without her tools. I originally thought about buying one but at £40+ each, it seemed cheaper to attempt it myself and indeed in the long run, it was! The EVA foam tiles I used for the axe itself cost £9 from B&Q and the paint I already had. I bought a bottle of PVC glue for sealant and spent a little money on a heatgun, which is used for sealing and also for bending EVA foam to make armour etc. Along with a Stanley/craft knife that I already had, some scissors, paintbrushes and sanding material, there isn't much else you need for a basic finish. If you want some decent sanding, you can do what I did and use a Dremel but if you've got a sharp enough knife, it shouldn't need half as much sanding as mine did! Some people will tell you to varnish it with some kind of top coat but I haven't done that as I couldn't find a definitive answer as to whether that is necessary or not with acrylic paint covering it. Then I wrapped some bandages that I got from Poundland back at Halloween around the handle (they were already blood-stained) and smothered them in tea and coffee grounds to age them. I'm pretty proud of how it turned out given that it was my very first attempt. I look forward to making more! Here's how it looked bare, before I realised I forgot to carve teeth into the handle! *facepalm* And now I have the basic skill to add much more depth to my cosplay so it's been a lot of fun! Thanks for reading guys! NX
