My cosplay from my first (July 2011) to my latest (May 2014)

I’m still very new to cosplay. I’ve only been doing it for 3 years but I’m very proud of the costumes I’ve created in that time. Each time I try to push myself to try something new: a new style, a new technique, something a bit out of my comfort zone.

I’m always very conscious of my weight when I cosplay, I’m a plus sized cosplayer and some people don’t really like that but hey, if someone sees me and thinks “well if she can cosplay then so can I” then I’m happy. Cosplaying has increased my confidence infinitely and I’m greatful to the friends I have that are my constant cosplaying companions and the friends I have made through the hobby.

Here’s to future costumes and hopefully future improvement!

As you may have guessed, the super secret sneaky cosplay was none other than BMO, the cutest gaming console in all of Ooo!

This will hopefully be worn around the hotel over the MCM Expo weekend, so look out for photos and if you see me wandering about your hotel come say hi! Usually we end up sitting near the windows and drinking inordinate amounts of Diet Coke so yeah.
