Specialties: painting/detail work and hand sewing

How long have you been cosplaying?: Since 2006

Your favorite cosplay you've done: Tanjiro from Demon Slayer. It's comfortable, I love how I look and he's one of my favorite characters of all time.

Most recent cosplay you've done: The last finished cosplay that we made together was Lio Fotia from Promare. I also thrifted Reki Sk8 the Infinity.

Other: Most of my cosplays are made by my partner, Kaz. I help out with detail work and painting, but they are the craftsman. Slowly they've been teaching me how to sew and I've gotten pretty good at hand sewing.

I discovered cosplay in high school and, as an artistic person, quickly latched on and dove headfirst into learning as much as I could about it.

I met my partner Kaz about four years into the hobby. Kaz handles most of the heavy duty sewing and prop making, while I handle the detail work and painting. Together we've delved into leather work, sewing, foam work, 3D printing, resin casting and alteration. We've tackled cosplays from every genre including television, movies, video games, anime, manga and original characters.

Your favorite cosplay you've done: Mei (Lunar Skin, Overwatch)

Most recent cosplay you've done: KFC Noelle (Genshin Impact)

I've recently gotten into Vtubers and am working on my first cosplay based on a streamer named Saruei! Some of them have some insanely cool designs and that's been a fun inspiration lately!

Being here is a lovely trip down memory lane!

Name: Internet handles are a little bit of everything, so Manticore is fine! (My u.n. here will change eventually if I stick around).

Pronouns: She/Her is fine

Social Media: brown_manticore_cosplay on Instagram

Specialties: I don't think I ever managed to develop a specialty other than messing up spectacularly but pushing through lol! Props are my weakness however, as I never really had the funds to make things without much but cardboard being involved, and now they really intimidate me!

How long have you been cosplaying?: I think I made my first cosplay in 2006? I had a store bought costume for a few years before I made my first.

Your favorite cosplay you've done: Fran from FFXII and Taokaka from BlazBlue. Both were some of my earliest cosplays and one of the last, as I remade Taokaka not long before my long time away from costuming.

Most recent cosplay you've done: I'm currently working on Eileen the Crow from Bloodborne (a little ambitious but I'm committed!). My most recent costume was a Ren faire costume that still isn't complete beyond the basic pieces.

Other: This is the first time in my life I'm able to afford to make things in the ways I've always wanted to, with more expensive fabric types, leather, etc, and to be able to experiment without fear of completely wasting my funds. I'm both equally dreading and excited by this prospect.

It's been about six years since I last went to a con or made something more complicated than a pair of pants. Like I said, I'm extremely nervous but excited to get back into it, especially given how much the cosplay community has changed.

Also, for some reason I had a moment where I deleted everything off of my account here, so that's why my profile is so empty. I wish I hadn't, but it's okay. I have most of the pics and things on my computer still.

Specialties: Honestly I have no idea what to say here, but I guess one of the reasons I got into cosplay is to practice my acting skills, which can be listed as a specialty! I also do a lot of closet cosplays so I guess styling everyday clothes is another thing if that counts. :)

I'm also really looking forward to learning new skills in the future, especially sewing.

Specialties: Uhh i don't particulary have one, I guess managing to do stuff with the little stuff I can get, I mostly make my own props myself tho so i guess I could say crafting and painting? I'm still a total newbie haha

How long have you been cosplaying?: I've oficially started cosplaying in October 2021!

Your favorite cosplay you've done: My Spider-Man Beyond suit is always a joy to take at conventions, but I really like how much effort and time I've been putting to my Quote cosplay

Most recent cosplay you've done: Kamen Rider Ichigo at Frikifest 2022

Other: I'm planning to make Mega Man X and Vigilante cosplays this year, I'm really in the need of getting a black bodysuit because that would help me A LOT with a lot of the 300 cosplay ideas I have in mind. In the near future I'd like to cosplay anime characters with battle armors or Kamen Riders.

Avatar for DirectorFury DirectorFury

Name: DirectorFury or just Fury on here please!

Pronouns: All

Social Media: I don't have any that I actually post stuff on

Specialties: Sewing probably, it's one of the only things I have ever felt like I actually had knack for, and also using weird materials to put together props

How long have you been cosplaying?: Officially since 2018, my first cosplay was Bedelia from Princless, which I made myself for a convention, but I had been making baby cosplays as Halloween costumes for years prior to that.

Your favorite cosplay you've done: I think it has to be my princess Mononoke costume. It's not the most comfortable or practical costume I have, but it just looks so good. It was also my first competition win, and I am super proud of all the work I put into it, over almost a year, to get it to be what it is!

Most recent cosplay you've done: Technically I think it was Severus Snape, but I was also finishing him at the same time as Mononoke, and I also just made a sort of cosplay related fairy costume, so who even knows at this point

Other: I have a couple big competition builds I am working on right now, including Sakizo's Seraphims Blessing that I am making for Kumoricon, along with the dance skit for it, and maybe even a lipsync, as well as duo Sabriel and Lirael cosplays for RCCC. For more casual plans I def want to do something from Arcane, probably young Vi or Jinx, as wells as a casual Thoma from Genshin impact.
