Love your cosplays so much :) I f you ever need help redesigning a character, would love to help you
Thank you for the message! I just took a look through your Tumblr and, WOW, you and your friend Maxime make a great team. Loving that you’re so clearly Marvel fans. I hit that Follow button pretty immediately! Thanks for the offer - I’ll certainly keep you in mind. :)
Edit: Ooops! I had meant this to be a PM…but now that it’s not, you should totally check out this guy’s work! It’s fab!
Hello! First off, the level of talent you display in making your costumes is flat-out incredible. These are movie-quality costumes (or, in Carol's case, uniforms). Second, you write beautifully--you really have a voice, and it's a pleasure to read your work. I hope you continue to enjoy cosplaying, creating and innovating amazing costumes and expressing yourself through words. Thank you for your bravery and confidence in sharing these parts of your life with us. Also, COMICS!!!!
Wow. Thank you. Truly. You are why I keep Anon open.
Hey, I saw you today for the first time in real life at the Cincy Expo...wow! I was to shy to approach, but I just want to say, you do a hell of a job bringing these great characters to life, and what a fantastic, heart stopping physique! Best Power Girl ever! Do you have a particular training regimen that you use to stay in shape?
Wow! Thank you so much!
Firstly, though I totally understand being shy…I’m really nothing to be afraid of. I’m a big goofball. I’m told I’m sweet and friendly. At conventions I love meeting people! Should I be at my table with prints scattered about, please don’t be deterred - I’m not expecting people to buy anything from me, it’s just there in case people do want that, so I won’t get sour with you if you walk away empty handed. You don’t even have to act interested in the prints, I promise!
Secondly, as to my regimen…I think I’d chalk a lot of it up to diet and being on the go. I do have an eliptical and some free-weights at home, which I utilize when I can, and I do love the bicycle crunch, but I’ve been on the go so much lately that I haven’t really had a strict workout schedule. I attribute a lot of how I am right now to my diet. No soda or juices, pretty much sticking to tuna, chicken, and turkey, very little dairy, and no carbs after 6pm. That, atop of moving and doing at conventions (my FitBit tells me I average 7 miles a day (sometimes in high heels!) on con weekends) is probably what’s doing it for me.
I ran a panel this past weekend with Esme Bianco (Ros, Game of Thrones) and Commander Holly (Heroes of Cosplay) called ‘Cosplay and Burlesque’. An audience member asked “What is your take on the Cosplay =/= Consent movement?” Esme looked confused, so we explained what cosplayers sometimes experience at conventions - inappropriate touching, groping, leering, and lewd, rude commentary - and there was a movement in progress that notified people that this behavior is Not Okay.
Esme looked horrified.
Esme has 10 years of burlesque experience. "In all my time of strip-teasing, of getting naked on stage, I never had those issues with the audience.”
This year, The CosView and Geek Eccentric attended Boston Comic Con 2014. Packed with cosplays and tv heroes, BCC was an energetic and fun filled con that was great for all ages. The CosView photographer, Lazzaro Studios, stated that BCC “was the best comic con” he had been to all year, and we had been to a handful of them.
Covering a con is always an enjoyment for The CosView. Not only do we get…
When you and Illiara went to Taiwan they were advertizing your bra sizes, are you ok with that?
I know. Funny thing is, I don’t even remember telling them my bra size. I think they got the info from my ancient Model Mayhem profile. Not sure why it was ‘necessary’. It was weird. But the whole trip was very weird, sometimes uncomfortable, and not what had been advertised to us. Good thing illiara and I got along so well!
:( man I was hoping to meet you at the puerto rico one. well i guess I can try to get a jump on next year's boston based cons.
Hey, don’t pouty face me! It’s not my fault - I’d still love to visit Puerto Rico! Go pouty face some convention organizers down there, maybe a reputable con like Puerto Rico Comic Con. The con that wanted to bring me in was still trying to get its feet under itself, and the organizers seemed to have bit off more than they could chew. (AKA the story of many baby cons in 2014)
Alright. Here’s the master list of conventions I will be attending this year (2014).
If a convention is not on here, I have zero plans of going. That’s not to say that I wouldn’t go if the convention invites me as a guest, but I cannot afford any other conventions on my own dime. If you would like me to be at your favorite con, please email the convention and convince them I would make a good addition to their show. If a convention is bolded, that means I will be a guest.

There are also two as-of-yet unscheduled conventions in December - one in Colombia, one in Puerto Rico.
I will edit this and reblog it whenever there is a change in this schedule. Before a convention, I will say what I will be wearing when - please don’t ask me months in advance, cause I usually have no idea and I’ll ignore you.
I hope to see some of you around! If you see me at a show, there’s no need to be shy - come up and say Hi! :)
Updated! My convention season is only halfway through!
Haven’t heard anything back from either Colombia or Puerto Rico, so it seems like they might be no-go.
