What cosplays are you currently working on? I’m not working on anything at the moment as I’ve just finished my Comic-Con costume Break time!

Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? Major Sam cosplay is such an inspiration. Her progress photos always bring me motivation to sew and she’s always so kind and welcoming with tips!
