Cosplay Project: ‘The Fiend’

It’s been a while since I wrote a cosplay post; Indeed, I think the last time I did was in January. I was originally going to be doing a year of small cosplay parts, but time quickly told me that I was going to be hunkered down with work. So, instead, I’m now vowing to complete one costume for the year. The character was only formed a few months ago and it’s quickly become a visual favourite of mine. Are you prepared to follow the leader and let me in?

Bristol Comic Con and Gaming Festival – 30th March 2019

Last year, we wrote about a relative newcomer to the comic con scene, with the Bristol Comic Con and Gaming Festival. After a successful first year here in Bristol, it looks like they’re back for another outing. As such, I figured it’d be a good time to check out what the event has coming up this year, as well as ticket prices and more. So, if you’re looking for a fun event in Bristol in the next few months, then come check this out. I’m sure it’ll be even better than the last one!

Our Reflection on 2018

2018 has been a year in which Joel and I have worked exceptionally hard – And I think every single one of you will have had a similar experience. You’ve all likely done something, or something happened to you in this year, which has changed you or changed the way you do something. This year hasn’t exactly been a barrel of laughs all the time, but it’s also not exactly been a bad year for us. I’ve got some fond memories from this year, which I hope to use to propel us as a website, us as a group and even myself as a creator further. Today, we’re just going to share what we think we’ve achieved this year – and hopefully you’ll be as proud of us as we are of the work we’ve put in.

My New Years Resolutions – One-Per-Month Cosplay Challenge

It’s been a while since I posted a genuine cosplay article on here, because in all honesty, I’ve been very lackadaisical with getting on with costumes. Not because I’m disinterested or even disorganised, but actually I’ve found that I haven’t had the proper motivation to make a whole costume. 2019 at first seemed like it was going to be even worse for me, I will not be attending any major UK conventions, which is a really sad thing to say. Instead of being down in the dumps about that, it’s given me a bit of an idea. Instead of wasting my New Years’ Resolution on the usual guffins, I’m going to vow to up my cosplay game.

Beginner’s Cosplay Guide #8: Striking A Pose

Cosplay is a crazy craft; cosplayers all begin somewhere and the question is where? How does someone start cosplaying comfortably? Who can cosplay? What are the etiquettes behind cosplay and what does a cosplayer need to know? Can someone with an unsteady hand become a cosplayer? Can someone who has never sewn-up a hole create stunning works of art? What do you need to get started? In a series of mini-guides, I hope to quell some of these questions and more.

Amecon 2018 – Timlah’s Summary & Gallery

WARNING: This article is incredibly image and video heavy!

AmeCon 2018 was a roaring success in my personal opinion, however the event started off with a few technical issues. Having said that, the crew battled on through those issues to be met with a weekend that had both roaring heat and ridiculous rainfall. The parties were fun, the cosplays were incredible, the guests were wonderful and the panels were all in all great fun (at least the ones I saw). Usually at these events, I don’t spend enough time going to events, usually because I’m in costume myself. For the first time ever, I went to an event with no cosplays, which felt strange, but seriously, it was rewarding to be able to look and appreciate the craft of Cosplay and Japanese fandom as someone looking in again. Read on for more on this year’s experience.

Beginner’s Cosplay Guide #7 – Primed & Painted

Amecon 2018 – Critter Cosplaying

I have mentioned in the past that I do not Cosplay, and I made mention of it as part of my panel on confidence building, that I have accepted that it is something I am not tempted by, and that there is nothing wrong with that. I suppose now i have to rephrase that, I have a selection of options on how to update my status, all of which are true:

I don’t cosplay very often
I don’t cosplay very well
I don’t usually cosplay, but every now and then, with the right fandom, and the right crowd to tempt me in, I’ll throw something quick together.

In the build up to Amecon I’d spotted a couple of folks planning on putting together a Critical Role cosplay, and a group-meet planned for the Saturday. It was short notice, but one quick glance around my room and I realise that… actually, I had the pieces to put together a rather hasty Caleb Widogast. (more…)
