I absolutely love doing cosplay! In fact, my Mina Harker cosplay won best amateur cosplay at Supanova many years ago… Here are some of my best costumes. I have three cosplay outfits planned for 2020 – one for Worldcon in New Zealand, and two for PAX. I mostly cosplay video game characters.
Yennefer of Vengerberg Cosplay – The Witcher
This is one of favourite and most detailed cosplay costumes ever. I sewed it all myself, including all the pearl detailing on the sleeves. Given the popularity of the Witcher is only increasing, I’m hoping to bring it out again this year.
Overburdened Wastelander cosplay – Fallout
I love the humour of the Fallout games, so I wanted to do a funny cosplay. Hence ‘Overburdened Wastelander’; so much of Fallout is inventory management… Note the duct tape and globe. This was made from a reclaimed jumpsuit from the op-shop, which felt like a very Fallout thing to do.
Mina Harker Cosplay – The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comic
All hand made by me, except for the hat and fan, reclaimed from the op-shop. I added a feather to the hat.
Varric Tethras cosplay – Dragon Age
Damn, I love Varric Tethras. I handpainted a Nerf gun to resemble his beloved Bianca. Jacket is made from reclaimed leather jackets, however I will never do this again – it was so difficult to sew with!
Nate Drake and Elena Fisher Cosplay – Uncharted
This was a fun, low-key cosplay of everyone’s video game couple goals. I am basically the IRL Elena Fisher – I’m a photographer and video producer by trade, and I love going hiking and travelling.
Paying tribute to our robotic overlords. This was a very quick to make cosplay (also stretchy and super comfortable). Could also double as a Belle from Beauty and the Beast costume.
Mr Darcy costume
This was a ridiculous bit of fun for Austencon 2019. After all, there’s always a lack of gentlemen at country balls. The jacket is a vintage Austrian wool jacket I bought in a Paris flea market for 20 euros.
