Hi I'm Cosqueenie,
Nice to meet all you lovely gamers and Cosplayers alike. If you want to know a little bit about me, I have been a avid Cosplayer for 6 years now and still loving every minute of it.

I wear a combination of homemade and bought Cosplays, although as time went by I found simply getting into a costume my favorite part! Cosplay to me is bringing the characters I love to life, and with that bringing smiles to both kids and adults; as I bring there beloved characters to life in the real world!

My favourite cosplay to date is hard to choose as so many of my costumes have made other people happy. One of my favourite’s will always be my Ariel from my little mermaid, that was used for children's parties and Charities to help raise money.

Hi, I'm SplatCosplay, I have been cosplaying for 3 years now, having started at my first Comic Con as Dallas from Payday. Since that first cosplay I slowly began to make my own costumes and props, becoming more ambitious with each new project. I mostly work with EVA foam as its a great material to work with and build awesome armours and weapons with only a few tools. My favourite games to play and cosplay from are The Elder Scrolls, Overwatch and Fallout.
