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 favorite 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!!!). passionate about bringing cosplay and propbuilding skills to the community, organisers of Cosprops makers group wales and their monthly events at the amman valley makerspace’
I'm CryptidCosplay and have been cosplaying since 2012, as soon as I have a character in mind nothing will stop me from doing them. I mostly make foam props and avoid sewing as much as possible, fabric can be hell to work with.
Cosplay Dave has been cosplaying since May 2013. After attending his first ever convention (London MCM) he fell in love with cosplay, being inspired decided he could try and create something just as amazing. So after being inspired Cosplay Dave focused his attention on armour craft. But shortly moved into trying to understand and learn all aspects of making a cosplay. His first proper build was made from pepakura paper template and fibreglass which he used to create Benjamin Carmine from Gears of War. Since completing that project he moved on to working with various types of foam, which is easier to work with and much lighter. He considers his best cosplay to be Thor. For this LD45 Foam and Latex were used to build the armour and he also made the cape, top and trousers challenging his sewing skills. The whole project took 4 weeks. Now he is trying to develop prop making skills incorporating 3D Printing with foam and aims to share his knowledge with others to hopefully help inspire others.
