Dragon Con 2013
to cosplay or not to cosplay
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
not trying to make a statement with my cosplaying/crossplaying; I'm just letting people know that is fun to be the opposite sex . Like for a guy might be fun for him to take a look at his feminine side by doing a feminine character or like for me I like playing the opposite sex because it's more fun and some people can't tell if im a guy or a girl until I open my mouth most of the time.
My main costume i do ( which is lady pinhead at the moment) because there isnt any real horror crossover with steampunk in con circuit, that I know of. Theres star trek star wars but no horror based cosplays esp. im steampunk theme. In addition I try to show people that you make a costume like mine for a decent price and not
like some cosplayers that spends lots of $ just to do one costume, because they think thats the only way to do it. I dont think so. Pinhead was about $50 to make.
But my true main reason I did her was my love of the movie Hellraiser, I cant wait to show doug Bradley the guy who played pinhead my costume & I love scaring people.
In addition I love steampunk too and putting the 2 together I thought was brilliant
The pic was take at Anachrocon two years ago
by friend of mine.
I have a couple other costumes Dragon Con this year that I'm trying to do. Two yrs ago I had just one costume, last yr I had two and this year my 3rd yr of doing cosplay; have a planing about 5 hopefully. One is sergeant hatred from Venture Brothers season 5. I'm also trying to do a Bioshock inspired booker from the new video game and changing my Joker to him more of a Bioshock splicer. Im also doing a rare star trek character, the half black half white alien , the one that frank gorshin portray. I love to crossplay which is a girl/guy that cosplays as the oppsite sex.
Im even trying start up cosplay/consulting company called Pennywize. That intends to help people get into costumes they want without breaking the bank.
Thank you for letting me share , see ya'll at KHAN :D con and have good day
