After sharing my recent Tenth Doctor photo shoot with you guys yesterday, I’d like to share another recent photo shoot! Mitch Kloorfain, a good friend and photographer, did a fun shoot with me and my friend and fellow Treasure Coast Cosplayer, Lazaro (IG: @cosplay_in_the_usa). I rocked the Harley Quinn costume I had made for my friend for last year’s Treasure Coast Comic Con and I added/subtracted a few of the details to make it more “me”; Lazaro was a fantastic Joker, as he always is.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted! The past 6-7 months have been filled with a lot of really fun times, costuming & cosplaying and some pretty epic personal events. There’s also been some heart-breaking and traumatic shit that shook down; some of the key players in my life have been fired from set and some of the guest stars are now leading lads and ladies. I’ve had the good fortune of outlets and opportunities opening up all around me that allow me to do the things I love with people I love and I couldn’t be happier.
So, back to work!
As I play a pretty intense game of catch-up, I’m going to start with a post showcasing some photos a photographer friend of mine, Phil Gladys, recently took of one of my Tenth Doctor Cosplays! I’m so excited about these photos and I hope you’ll take a look!
Thanks for reading. You can look forward to lots of new material over the next several weeks!
This weekend The Treasure Coast Cosplayers hosted a booth at Space Coast Comic Con in Cape Canaveral. It was the first con that TCC was formally represented so we were all super excited about attending this con! I wasn’t able to attend on Day 1 but I did make the drive up on Day 2 with a couple of friends and members of TCC. I ended up making a last minute change in my cosplay plans (isn’t that always the way?) and decided to debut my Captain Jack Harkness!
I really need to get in the habit of taking more photos of my cosplays and with other cosplayers I meet at events… I did manage to snap a few.
Turns out, one of my good friends’ friend was also in attendance and representing another cosplay group a couple of booths down from us! One of my favorite things about attending cons is forming friendships with cosplayers from all. I also ran into an awesome Star Lord cosplayer who gave me some inspiration for the cosplay I’m working on for MegaCon 2016.
One of the activities guests could participate in when they stopped by the TCC booth was to share a less than pleasant experience in cosplaying for our #EndCosplayHate campaign. I shared a bit of what I experience often while cosplaying: I often cosplay male characters, like The Doctor or Capt. Jack and a lot of times people comment about my gender being opposite of the character… As if any of that nonsense matters when it comes to cosplaying. In fact, throughout the day, lots of other attendees mistook my cosplay as River Song… on account of the boobs… and the hair, I suppose.
SCCC was a small con (this may have even been it’s first year. I’m not entirely positive about that.) but it’s always a lot of fun to hang out and chat with other super fans of all fandoms and browse all the goodies I wish I was able to buy all of.
For this month’s Cosplay Karaoke party with TCC, I went with an easy cosplay of a Gryffindor… Since I am a Gryffindor, I have plenty of clothes and accessories to chose from. I was also wearing Hermione’s timer-turner necklace and wielding her wand so maybe this was a Hermione cosplay?
Anyway, we all had a blast and my friends are pretty damn cool.
Our after hours Dennys noshing seems to be becoming a ritual as well…
