Hannah has been cosplaying since October of 2015, having turned to cosplay as an escape (like many of us do). Since starting out with Rocket Raccoon in 2015, she has challenged herself to make her favourite characters as cosplays, regardless of their popularity or level of difficulty. Her ideas span a number of genres and media and she always tries to be as accurate as possible (to a fault at times!!!). Recent cosplays include Captain Bucky O'Hare, his gunner shipmate Deadeye Duck and 'Shoe' from LAIKA studios' cute little film 'Boxtrolls'. With many more plans in the pipeline for 2017, she's going to be a busy bunny this year!
