SO a lot happened in 2012 for me, started taking on prop commissions, worked on a large scale movie, moved house, started my 2nd year of Uni, and made my most successful cosplay to date.
My Kuma cosplay took around 4 months to create and cost me about £300, but in the end it was all worth it as this cosplay pushed me to expand on my skills such as Armor making, Fibreglass, Carving/Sculpting and Electronics but on a much larger scale.
I debuted Kuma at the October MCM Expo in London and he was really well received by everyone and pleasantly surprised quite a few people with our Afro Samurai Group, with Joseph as Afro and Liana as Lady Sio - who both rocked!
I entered into the Sunday Masquerade and ended up winning 'Best in Show' much to my disbelief, and then was told that I should enter into the ECG Qualifier at Hyper Japan at the end of November - and WON - so I'm now the UK 'SOLO' Representative for the European Cosplay Gathering (ECG) Finals at Japan Expo in Paris!
I also ended up winning the NEO Magazine 'Cosplay Idol' competition and was featured in the Magazine.
SO for 2013 my plans are to focus mainly on Uni and my cosplay for the ECG Finals, so I shan't be taking on any commissions till July.
I am planning on attending May MCM Expo, If I have the time I plan to cosplay as Seifer Almasy as part of a large Final Fantasy VIII Group, if not I shall most probably either re-wear my Cloud Strife or Squall Leonhart Cosplay.
For the ECG Finals, I really wanna do something different from everyone else and really wan't to push myself, so I have decided to cosplay as the main character from one of my All Time Fav Video Games - Raziel from 'Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver'!
I plan getting started with him near the end of January/beginning of February and make it during my spare time at Uni.
I've also made a Facebook Cosplay page www.facebook.com/SketchMcDrawC…
that you can Follow as it'll have more regular updates on Raziel's progress than my dA will have.
Also here is a Link to the ECG Team UK Facebook page www.facebook.com/EcgTeamUk2013
