Update

Apologies for not updating here for a while but I have been a busy bee! There are a lot of things in the works such as plus size modeling, becoming a fully qualified swim teacher, full-time work in e-sports, Insomnia Gaming Festival with Nintendo, my freelance artworks/illustrations, I’ve also started to paint again AND I’m cosplay making!

All I can say is watch this space, some amazing things are about to unfold and I’m so excited to share that with you!

Thank you 🙂

Things not to say to cosplayers bbc3

So back in November 2017 I did some filming with BBCThree for their ‘Things Not to Say to Cosplayers’ episode! It was so much fun to do, an exciting and quite nerving experience too, but never did I think that from me just planning out the creation of my Moana costume this time last year would get me to here! I’m really proud of myself for doing this, I usually shy away from the camera but it’s so important to capture these kind of moments – it’s definitely a stepping stone for me. Watch out for more cosplays in future! Enjoy the video, it was good fun to do 🙂

Moana Cosplay

I apologise for the delay in showing these but here are the photos from London Comic Con where I cosplayed as Moana! Everything was entirely handmade and I am so happy with the results, it looks really authentic – like I am a real islander!

Moana Cosplay Making

Currently near completion of creating my Moana cosplay from scratch! I wasn’t able to find her costume online that was made nicely and in my size, so I decided to take on the ongoing project of creating it myself and it has been a lot of fun! I created the top and belt with the help of my aunty who is embroidering the skirt, it looks so organic and tribal! Really true Moana’s heritage.

What’s nice about being an artist is that your craft and skills cross over all platforms 🙂

Final photos of the entire cosplay together will be up soon!
