It's hard to pin down exactly how long I've been cosplaying, but I grew up with parents who were cosplayers and have been wearing cosplay since I was 5 years old. I began creating my own costumes in 2013, heading to my first event in Cardiff.

Most of my experience and skill is in foamsmithing, although I have got alot of experience in sewing, my greatest cosplay achievement is probably my space marine. He took a few weeks of solid work, but he is the biggest costume I've built and everyone loves him!

The best thing about the cosplay community is it's ability to bring people together, sharing advice and one piece I can give is experience takes time!

You may feel your costumes aren't as good as people who are popular and have highly detailed costumes, but they have the ability to create such costumes because of the time they've put into honing their skills at crafting. You shouldn't look at these people and feel down because your costumes aren't as good, instead, look to these people for inspiration, not to put yourself down.

But most importantly, always remember we are a community coming together in the act of bringing characters and creatures to life!

Having recently performed alongside Microsoft with his costumes appearing in a recent syndicate video Atom Cosplay will be joining us. ``I never really knew cosplay existed at first. I made costumes for fancy dress parties and Halloween, and fell backwards into the exciting world of Cosplay in August 2015. I entered my first Masquerade and fell in love. I work mainly with low budget material such as eva foam, expanding foam, cardboard etc, and love to upcycle/recycle any thing into a costume. Since getting the hang of Foam Smithing, I've started adding motors, LEDs and even home made smoke machine into my cosplays. Nowdays I like to go big or go home and was dubbed the ``King of Eccentric Cosplay``.``

'I only realised there was a whole world of crazy cosplay guys out there in august 2015 when I went to my first con. I try and use all different materials and recycled objects to get the best results and to keep costs down, I love sharing tips on budget cosplaying and inspiring people to have a go that previously thought cosplaying was too expensive for them. I'm looking forward to venturing into bigger cosplays in the future!'
