Happy CosFriday everyone! It’s Supanova Perth this weekend and so we have a Perth Edition CosFriday this week with the awesome ThatGypsyGeek who you can catch at Supanova this weekend!
What’s your name? I’m ThatGypsyGeek. I’m about 5 yo (mentally) and am an aspiring unicorn
How long have you been cosplaying? I got introduced to cosplay a couple of years ago and I fell in love.
What inspired you to start cosplaying? By trade, I’m a designer dressmaker for ballroom dancers, but when my inner geek started to escape.. cosplay was the perfect way to combine my worlds and explore new mediums
What was your First Cosplay? First cosplay was Mystique from the Xmen comic book series.
What is your most recent cosplay? My most recent cosplay was Poison Ivy (inspired by noflutter fan art because she’s amazing!)
What cosplays are you currently working on? I’m currently working on Marvin the Martian for Supernova Perth this weekend!!
Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? I have a number of cosplayers in the community both locally and around the world, I admire for their skills and as humans. I adore watching cosplay bring people from different walks of life together and seeing the community support and encourage each other to learn, grow and spread loves.
Who else do you want to cosplay? The list is long.. but I’d love to do a Batgirl variant or Triss from Witcher soon
Tell us an odd fact about yourself! Sometimes when I look at long socks I think… “foot condom?”
