A major hobby of mine is cosplay. It feeds my geek side as well as my crafting side. I regularly attend conventions all around the country.
I love the whole costume-making process; from seeing an epic character and thinking “how the heck would that be made in real life?”, to deconstructing the outfit and working out how individual things can be made. Money (lack thereof) is often a big obstacle in this hobby, so I take particular pleasure in trying to make costumes from everyday objects.
I’m constantly striving to upgrade and improve existing costumes, just to get that final, elusive detail right.
