Melbourne OzComicCon is now only 2 weeks away and if you are stuck for what you are going to wear we are here to help. So say Hi to this week’s featured cosplayer with a penchant for prosthetics, Melbourne Cosplayer – Hey Look. It’s that Guy.
What’s your name & how old are you? I like to be known as “That Guy” and I am about to start my 37th lap around the Sun.
How long have you been cosplaying? I started in 2010 but have been doing it properly since 2015.
What inspired you to start cosplaying? The awesome feeling you get when you are in cosplay and the amazing people that you meet in the community and events.
What was your First Cosplay? Scorpion from Mortal Kombat.
What is your most recent cosplay? Saruman the White from Lord Of The Rings and the Creeper from Jeepers Creepers.
What cosplays are you currently working on? I currently have 3 new projects under construction but I always keep everything a secret. I like to see how many of my friends I can walk past without being recognised.
Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? ALL my friends, every single one of them! I spend the majority of the day at an event looking, touching and asking a million questions about their cosplays. They all put in so much effort and so many hours into their work and the results are always breathtaking.
Who else do you want to cosplay? How many months are you willing to spend scrolling down my list of cosplay plans? I had to stop adding ideas because I’ll be dead way before I make it half-way down that list.
Tell us an odd fact about yourself! Every time I build a cosplay, I superglue my fingers together. Every single time!
And don’t forget that submissions are now open for our 2019 Charity Cosplay Calendar to raise money for BeyondBlue! If you are a Cosplayer, Cosplay Group or a Photographer with a dream, we would love to hear from you.
